|Ferrari FF Concept|
It won't run on biodeisel, but Finger Lakes swells will need this all wheel drive utility vehicle. For those bad weather runs to the farmers market, or Soros-financed demonstrations at remote fracking sites:
MARANELLO, Italy — The Ferrari FF concept, which previews the 612 Scaglietti replacement, was unveiled on Friday ahead of its debut at the 2011 Geneva Auto Show.
The FF gets a shooting brake-style body — courtesy of Pininfarina -- which is already being described as controversial in some quarters, as well as four seats and Ferrari's first four-wheel-drive system. The automaker says it weighs 50 percent less than a conventional four-wheel-drive system. "The four-wheel-drive technology delivers record levels of performance on all terrains and in all conditions via continuous and intelligent predictive torque distribution to all four wheels," said Ferrari in a statement.
Power is provided by a 6.3-liter V12 that churns out 651 horsepower and 504 pound-feet of torque. It is connected to a seven-speed double-clutch transmission which enables the FF to sprint from zero to 62 mph in 3.7 seconds. It has a top speed of 208 mph.
