ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Sept. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Ferrari North America is pleased to announce its 2012 Winter Driving Experience, the Prancing Horse's first American snow and ice driving school.

Based on the "Pilota on Ice" programs offered in Italy, the Winter Driving Experience is Ferrari's newest and most dynamic driving program. The two-day course, scheduled to launch in January 2012 and run until the early Spring, has been specifically developed with the FF in mind to highlight the versatility and functionality of the all-new 4 seat Ferrari model.

The beauty and topography of Aspen, Colorado offers the perfect backdrop for the custom-made snow and ice course that Ferrari will build to showcase the FF model's potent abilities.
