It’s time to give this shooting brake an update.
When it launched back in 2011, the Ferrari FF was something of an oddball. As a four-seater with a shooting brake design, it was definitely not the typical Ferrari. It also had all-wheel drive, making it a favorite target amongst Ferrari purists. But it’s sold incredibly well, and now it’s time to give it a mid-life refresh. Set to debut as a 2016 model, the updated FF will receive even more power, revised styling, and an optional turbocharged V8. But don’t worry; the V12 will remain available and it’ll likely have an output closer to 700 horsepower.
The new engine, supposedly for the entry-level model, will be a slightly updated version of the new turbocharged V8 found in the California T. The all-wheel drive system is also set to be tweaked. The seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox will be swapped in favor of an eight-speed unit as well. The exterior will sport more carbon fiber body panels, while the interior will receive an updated infotainment system complete with Apple CarPlay. The 2016 FF’s updates are said to be significant enough to keep the car relevant for a few more years. Ferrari is still apparently deciding the makeup of its replacement. Will it continue the shooting brake design, venture into four-seater coupe territory, or something else entirely?
