Ferrari FF: Probably The Best Ferrari

Ferrari FF, the four-seat and four-wheel hatchback inspired Ferrari. From my definition, Ferrari FF does not sound that charming and when you see the press photos, the tendency to love this Ferrari vanishes very quickly. I used to be supporting the idea of ignoring Ferrari FF as the first Ferrari. FF was a four-seat, four-wheel drive, hatchback inspired Ferrari that cannot be called a Ferrari. But I was wrong!

Last week, I visited the HR Owen’s new Ferrari dealer in Knightsbridge, Ferrari  Atelier! And they had the Ferrari FF! It was my first time with the FF and I was expecting something really disappointing from every aspect. But I was wrong!

Unfortunately, the press photos of Ferrari FF in red does not emphasise the lines and you cannot see the depth of the details on FF. In my opinion, if you are planning to buy a Ferrari FF, go for a different colour than the red. Don’t worry a Ferrari is always a Ferrari regardless of its colour.

Ferrari FF does look definitely different from the Ferrari models. You can easily identify the GT character and spacious interior before you get inside. The interior is high quality as you expected and you have the all Ferrari toys, which you expected to see! Seats are really comfortable with the heating and ventilation option and memory function. Steering wheel is adjusted electrically with memory function.

The back seats are not as spacious as a four-door large sedan but they offer plenty of legroom for a Ferrari. It may not be that comfortable for long journeys but still it is impossible to accommodate two people at the rear seats.

The boot is the main handicap of Ferraris. However, FF offers plenty of space at the boot and rear seats can be folded! I guess this is the first time in a Ferrari. And with folded rear seats, there is a huge loading space!

And lastly, I like Ferrari FF because it is not designed to be a posing car. Someone who doesn’t know cars very well may not realise that, it is the latest Ferrari. Basically, Ferrari FF gives you the opportunity to be stealth without sacrificing the experience of a Ferrari.

Ferrari FF vs. Bentley Continental GT ? This is a very tough question! I may go for a FF and keep a Continental GT at the garage :)

Ferrari FF is powered by 6.2-lt V12 engine with 660 HP and 683 Nm of torque. Only needs 3.7 seconds to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) with the top speed of 335 km/h (208 mph). Engine is coupled with 7-speed double clutch pedal shift automatic gearbox. And a special four-wheel drive system that does not kill the pleasure.

If you can afford to buy one, go for it ;) I didn’t have chance to drive it but I am sure that it will be an amazing experience.

And thank you very much to HR Owen Ferrari Atelier for the hospitality.


Ferrari Guinness World Record at Silverstone by Charles Davis Photos

Ferrari’s attempt to break Guinness World Record for largestFerrari parade is well-known by everyone. And they managed to achieve this by more than 1000 Ferraris in Silverstone. Unfortunately, I was busy at that day and missed the opportunity to see this amazing event.
However, my dear friend Charles Davis (Founder of Professional Photography) attended the event and took pictured the astonishing moments of the Ferrari parade. And he had opportunity to enter track and get very close to all these fabulous Ferraris. Actually, it is really hard to get access for the track and only very few people have this privilege.
I am not a photography expert but from my experiences I can say one thing, most of these shoots cannot be taken so easily. Especially the Formula 1 car’s burnout moment is really hard to picture. Even if you have the proper equipment, you need experience and talent to catch that moment.
You may find more of Charles work on his website and don’t forget to check his twitter.
Here some of the Ferraris from the photos; Ferrari 599FXX, Ferrari FFs, 599XX Evoluzione, Scuderia Ferrari F1 F2008, F458 Italia, F430.

Ferrari FF: My First Ferrari ?

I do know that many people have a serious problem! Especially, the rich ones. Based on my observations, being a rich person is not that easy. When you don’t have money, the opportunities are pretty limited and you have to be satisfied with those limited alternatives. For instance, if you are not rich and live on a limited budget your dream cars are limited also. Let’s take, Ford Fiesta. It is cheap to own, cheap to run and cheap to maintain. But it does not offer four wheel drive or Formula 1 style paddle shift or track mode. And you never complain for the Fiesta’s lack of opportunities!
However, when you become rich you want more of everything. You want a fast car, four wheel drive, Formula 1 paddle shift, race mode, leather, coupe with big boot and this list goes forever. Hopefully, Ferrari revealed the FF model to satisfy the rich people, who cannot be satisfied with any car on planet. Eventually, Ferrari FF is a like an automotive salad. You can find anything with the FF, there are not limitations. 
As the Ferrari FF is the best of everything but will it be your first Ferrari? Will anyone go for Ferrari FF instead of Ferrari 458 or 599 !?! I don’t think so. Ferrari FF is a contemporary interpretation of Ferrari but not enough for being the first Ferrari.

Mercedes G Class vs. Ferrari FF (Follow Ferrari)

Since I started blogging, Mercedes always provided me something to write. Thanks to their marketing and engineers, I always found something and honestly I am sure some of them are not adored by Mercedes too!
Recently Ferrari decided to introduce interesting materials by starting a car called as FF, in terms of Twitter world this mean “Follow Friday” or we amend to “Follow Ferrari”. Since the live press conference which was heavily involved with a word called “innovative”, offered excellent materials for me.
And Ferrari did not stop this! They introduce a very unusual footage of FF. And this footage is very similar to Mercedes’s the one and only coolest vehicle G Class’s advertisement. In both videos scenery starts with snow and both of the vehicles are doing artistic moves on snow. For G Class, that’s something really normal. Because, that’s designed for that! However jumping and sliding on snow with a Ferrari is really “innovative”. I salute the Ferrari marketing team.
I hope that they won’t reveal a bullet proof FF, as a result of innovative technology!

Ferrari with Tilting Rear Seats

In recent weeks lots of things were written about the new Ferrari FF. But I would like highlight only one sentence from Montezemolo;
“…you can increase the luggage capacity by tilting the rear seats…”
I have nothing to add to this sentence! A Ferrari with 800lt of luggage capacity. Just watch the last ten minutes of the YouTube video. And my proposal for Ferrari FF optional kit, a tow bar!

Ferrari Estate: FF

This years Geneva Motor Show has something really interesting, actually something really unexpected. It is the Ferrari FF!
Ferrari new very innovative four wheel drive, four seater car with 800 lt of boots space. It is really unbelievable see a Ferrari with this kind of huge boots space.
Unfortunately this is the fate of every fast. I don’t know why but high performance is now being associated with huge boot space. I think people are get bored changing car and they want to something which can do everything.
This weird addition started with Audi rs6, then Mercedes E63 and BMW M5 and Ferrari FF. Okay, except Ferrari FF the rest of these cars are estate but when you consider the traditional size of a Ferrari, ff is an estate.
