2016 Ferrari FF Coupe Release Date, Price, Specs, Engine – Everyone can reminisce that the Ferrari FF was only launched four years ago at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show as the automobile’s first ever produced 4WD model. It was basically developed as a successor to the 612 Scaglietti.
The FF Coupe is somehow different from the grand tourer, and sports a shooting-brake-like posterior end instead of the conventional Ferrari’s traditional coupe styling. The vehicle borrows similar features from the 250 GT SWB Breadvan such as, the overall appearance, trunk capacity of up to 28 cubic feet and foldable rear seats.
With the aforesaid features, both the grand tourer and Ferrari have tried to achieve a rare feat that brings them nearer to the near-supercar performance figures. As for the Ferrari FF, a hatchback design and a powerful V12 engine paired to an AWD system makes the vehicle an exotic among the few exotics out there.
The FF in its fourth model year, is set to receive a much anticipated facelift that will further enhance its reputation as a one of a kind in the motoring scene. The following speculative review will delve right into the details that we think will be made available with the upcoming new Ferrari FF Coupe 2016.
Exterior Spy Shots- 2016 Ferrari FF Coupe
Our photographers spotted the FF making road tests in Europe and the photos suggests that the new FF Coupe will certainly make a debut adorning various updates. Though our trusty ‘All About Cars’ paparazzi managed to catch the juicy details of the facelifted FF from most angles, the photos we have aren’t very revealing, maybe due to the fact that the vehicle is basically the previous vehicle but with a slightly revised front bumper.
As a matter of fact, the front apron seems to me like someone smashed it with a hammer and then used an adhesive tape to assemble it back together, however, a deeper look reveals a completely redesigned FF Coupe.
At the front fascia, a discerning eye would clearly see that the bumper’s right side has a vertical gap, which is new add-on on the FF Coupe. Another new cool feature is the redesigned air intakes and the shorter centre grille.
At the back fascia, the overall look has remain conspicuously unchanged, except for the diffuser, which now sports a slightly redesigned shape. Notwithstanding, I’ve got a hunch that more novelties will showcase as the development progresses from a mere prototype to a production unit.
2016 Ferrari FF Coupe Interior Photos
Despite the lack of more information pertaining what to expect from the new vehicle, we don’t expect any significant changes inside its cabin. In fact, I’m pretty convinced that Maranello will leave most of the interior untouched.
However, there won’t lack any updates in the cabin, with the most promising ones being the introduction of new upholstery colours and hopefully additional leather options. Another feature worth an update would be the infotainment system and instrument cluster.
We will be updating more info on what to expect from the forthcoming new 2016 Ferrari FF Coupe interior soon. So keep checking for the updates in the coming weeks.
Engine Specs – Ferrari FF Coupe 2016
Under the hood of the new FF will be a host of new performance updates. Firstly, the 6.3L V12 will return with more power. Currently, the vehicle is rated at 660 hp and 503 pounds of torque, but with the new performance tweak, the vehicle will easily yield up to 700 hp and 530 pounds of feat, which will be just enough to keep its enthusiasts happy but not much to step into the world of F12berlinetta territory.
With the new power, the FF will easily sprint from 0-60 mph in less than 3 seconds, this might be perhaps 0.1 quicker than its predecessor and isn’t much of a significant change. The top speed of the vehicle will remain capped at 211 mph.
Despite the oomph, bigger news are expected from the 3.9L V8 engine which has been developed for the California T. Word has it that the turbocharged eight banger will brood a new standard model for the FF model, which will be aimed at markets often subjected to stricter emission laws.
The latter engine is capable of yielding around 560 hp in the California T and a staggering 659 hp in the 488 GTB. Also on the table are an 8-speed dual clutch transmission and an AWD system.
Price and Release Date of the New 2016 Ferrari FF Coupe
Expect the cost of the new FF to set you back by around $400,000, and will most probably hit showrooms somewhere next year.
