Ferrari FF, behind the scenes – Click above to watch the videos after the jump

Typically when an automaker rolls out a new vehicle, it fits into a certain mold. Even if it isn't replacing a specific model, it generally follows a certain formula by which the automaker operates. Especially for an automaker like Ferrari, which only makes – and only has ever made – two-door, rear-wheel drive coupes and convertibles. That was the case, at least, until the new FF came along.

The FF represents a complete game-changer for Maranello – an entirely new model with a new engine, new body-style and new four-wheel drive system never before seen in a Ferrari. And to drive that point home, the Prancing Horse marque has released yet another set of videos: one documenting the new technology in the car, another the flexible cabin configurations and a third going behind the scenes in the production of the previous videos released. Follow the jump to watch for yourself.

      Does it pain anyone else nearly as much as it pains me that there is a video titled "Versatility" by Ferrari?

      Don't care what anyone says, i love this car so much.

      Well, if Insideline's numbers are correct, 135mph in 4th gear is 8250rpm.
      I guess you don't need any drive to the front axle above that speed.

        and it does NOT have a torque vectoring rear differential.

        The rear suspension has that unique short vertical link at the rear bottom of the control arm to hub [BMW & GM have used that]

      A Ferrari isn't supposed to be practical or versatile. If I want an AWD hatckback I'll get an STI. I've always been a Ferrari fan first and a Lamborghini fan second (since they're traditional rivals). But after the California, the 458 and now this atrocity? Looks like I'm now a Lamborghini fan first.

      I really like this car. Yes, it's a big hatchback that's got a slightly awkward style (in classic Ferrari red it looks better), but it is just as fast and fun to drive as a 599 GTB (and better than the 612) with an unusual but very useful shooting brake design. The FF, like the 612 before it is designed as the softer, more practical V12, leaving the 2 door 2 seat supercar/super GT stuff for the 599 replacement. And the 4wd system is unique in its size and execution, behaving like a rwd in the dry, but more stable in rain (or even snowy ski hills!) than any previous Ferrari. Until the Lamborghini Estoque concept becomes a reality, this is the ultimate combination of supercar performance, the comfort and opulent luxury of an executive supersedan/ limo, with added space, versatility and "uniqueness" of a station wagon/shooting brake.

      I'm with Nathan. I dig this car big time. I would like to see how viable the rear seating is though. Guess I'll have to swing bu the local Dealership and have a look see.

      I've got mixed feeling about this car.
