2015 Ferrari FF Review

By Joe Tralongo, Contributing Editor

We can’t help drawing comparisons between the 2015 Ferrari FF high-performance coupe and the old BMW Z4. But, it’s not just the FF’s wagon-like tail that’s a bit out of place for a Ferrari; there are an extra pair of seats for additional passengers and an actual cargo hold behind them. Further differences appear under the FF’s seductive metal skin, where an all-wheel-drive (AWD) setup is mated to a fire-breathing 651-horsepower 6.3-liter V12 engine. Despite all this high-powered hardware, the Ferrari FF for 2015 remains just under the 4,000-pound mark, enhancing both performance and handling. Even millionaires, however, are careful with their money, and one can obtain less exclusive exotic cars such as a Porsche Panamera or Jaguar XKR-S for far less money.

While no one is expecting an AWD Ferrari to replace the family Land Rover, it is nice to know that should inclement weather encroach on your drive, the 2015 Ferrari FF won’t be easily intimidated. There’s even a modest rear seat for additional passengers.

Ferrari’s reputation is legendary and not always in a good way. If you’re looking for a strong dealer network, cutting-edge driver-assist features and admirable reliability ratings, going with a more mainstream exotic from Porsche, BMW, Audi or even Lexus might be a better choice.

What's New for 2015

For 2015, Ferrari has finally ditched the antiquated Chrysler-sourced audio and navigation unit for a more modern piece. Along with better navigation and functionality, the 2015 FF by Ferrari now features CarPlay, a system that uses the navigation screen to display maps, apps and messages from one’s smartphone.

Driving the FF
Driving Impressions

Imagine zipping along in your sleek new Italian exotic sports coupe, marveling at the car’s impressive road manners and delighting as it rockets to 62 mph in a scant 3.8...

... seconds. Now imagine having three of your best friends along to enjoy the ride, and you’ve just pictured what it’s like behind the wheel of Ferrari’s FF supercar for 2015. The FF’s cornering ability is enhanced by the 4RM all-wheel-drive system that favors a rear bias on dry pavement. But, find a snow-covered mountain road and the FF leaves all its competitors by the roadside (literally). As if this point needed any further emphasis, Ferrari paired us with World Rally Champion Markku Alen. On a snow-covered rally course, Markku performed maneuvers far beyond anything we would have felt comfortable attempting, a thrill ride revealing the FF was in desperate need of proper winter tires.

The 2015 Ferrari FF 4-seat exotic sports coupe features a multifunction steering wheel housing buttons for the turn signals, ignition and even the Manettino 5-position suspension, which features settings for Wet, Snow, Sport, Comfort and ESC off.

No one orders a base Ferrari, which is why the Italian automaker charges an arm and a leg for the most desirable paint options, leathers, seat types, wheels, brakes and carbon-fiber trim. Numerous add-ons help further personalize one’s FF.

2015 Ferrari FF Details

Just because there are four seats, it doesn't mean all four passengers are treated equally in Ferrari’s FF coupe for 2015. The deeply sculpted rear seats are better suited to small children than adults. The front seats are excellent, though, with a multi-position power seat allowing drivers to find the perfect fit. Exquisite leather covers the seats, dash, doors and everything else. Thankfully, a new navigation audio unit and harman/kardon speaker setup help the FF keep pace with the rest of the industry, although at this price one might expect exceptional rather than good enough.

Hatchback shape or not, the 2015 Ferrari FF shooting brake is Ferrari at its finest. The wagon-like shape flows from the long hood to the hatch, giving this Ferrari elements of practicality and versatility that have usually been lacking in the brand's cars. The attention to details is everywhere, from the artfully sculpted side vents to the way the car's sheet metal wraps around the single circular taillights. It's the kind of coachwork you expect from such an expensive car.

Notable Equipment
Standard Equipment

There's only one powertrain for Ferrari’s 2015 FF: a 6.3-liter V12 engine, 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, 4RM all-wheel drive, and electromechanical center differential. Inside, all Ferrari FF's get full leather interior, a power-adjustable tilt/telescopic steering wheel, voice-activated navigation, harman/kardon audio with CD/DVD/USB/satellite stereo and iPod integration plus the CarPlay apps integration system, dual-zone automatic climate control, and automatic headlights with washers. Behind the standard 20-inch aluminum-alloy wheels are a Magnaride adaptive suspension and Brembo ceramic brakes. Standard safety equipment includes electronic traction and stability control and front-seat side-impact airbags.

Optional Equipment

To keep Ferrari FF drivers from seeing themselves coming and going, the FF of 2015 can be optioned up to near-custom levels. You can get swiveling headlights, an upgraded audio system pumping 1,280 watts of music power, an even better leather interior, matching leather luggage...the list goes on and on, and Ferrari will even take special requests for the right price. You can also get more performance-oriented options, like engine-idle cutoff, sport exhaust pipes and 20-inch diamond-finish aluminum-alloy wheels.

Under the Hood

The Ferrari FF 4-passenger super coupe for 2015 is equipped with a hand-built 6.3-liter V12 engine. Power is routed through a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with manual-shift control and flows to all four wheels via an electromechanical center differential. In a nod to better performance, Ferrari says its AWD unit is 50 percent lighter than a conventional system.

6.3-liter V12
651 horsepower @ 8,000 rpm
486 lb-ft of torque @ 8,000 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 11/17 mpg
