Ferrari goes digital to explain the drivetrain of the 2012 FF – Click above to watch video after the jump

The latest exotic machine from Maranello is the 2012 FF. The unusual Ferrari is a four-passenger shooting-brake with a 651-horsepower, 6.3-liter V12 under the hood. All of that go-go-energy is sent to the wheels via Ferrari's new 4RM part-time all-wheel-drive system.

The Italian automaker has put together a video explaining how the system works. To put it simply, the system metes out torque to each wheel individually. That's no easy task, since the twelve-cylinder mill churns out 504 pound-feet of the stuff. Click past the jump for a visual lesson on the Ferrari FF's 4RM drivetrain. Also, turn up your speakers for the Beverly Hills Cop-esque soundtrack.
