Really, it sounds insane.
It was back in 2011 when Ferrari dropped a bombshell by launching the all-wheel-drive, V12-powered FF shooting brake. There still really isn’t anything quite like it on the market. And, believe it or not, once the heavily facelifted 458 debuts at Geneva this March, it’ll become the oldest model in the Ferrari lineup. Where did the time go? Well, it just went, and Ferrari is now at work prepping the FF for a mid-life refresh of its own. Our good friend and world-class car spotter Marchettino happened upon a prototype FF testing at Ferrari-owned track circuit, Fiorano.
The exhaust note sounds sublime and we’d be willing to bet Ferrari is planning to upgrade the FF’s 6.3-liter V12 with even more than the existing 651 horsepower. Also note the longer exhaust pipes. Is Ferrari developing something new here? Possibly, and we’ll hopefully find out sometime later this year.
