EVO's Harry Metcalfe had some questions about the day-to-day livability of the Ferrari FF. When he brought those questions up to Ferrari, they suggested he take one for a couple of weeks and try it out for, as he calls them, "mundane duties." The image above is Metcalfe pointing to the 660-horsepower, all-wheel drive FF parked in one of his fields because, since he lives on a farm, mucking about the green is part of his daily routine. "It could use more ground clearance," he says, "but that's an option on this car."

He does get it on the "tarmac" and he likes it even more there than in the mud. Except for the buttons on the steering wheel; he thinks learning to use them is like learning to play guitar. He has a lot more to say besides that, and you can watch him expound for all of 17 minutes in the video below.

      I had a poster of a Countach on my wall as a kid, but this is my dream car as an adult. It is a genuinely usable super car. This is the kind of thing that working stiffs like myself could put up in their office. In a few years they will be going for $200k. I can daydream about earning enough money to buy this car and still justify it to my wife. There are plenty of cars out there that are better on paper and cost less money. But, show me another car that has this kind of performance and heritage but is more useful in everyday applications. This is the true dream for any car guy that has to live in the real world: 2 car garages, 2 cars per family, and 2 kids in the back.

      Why is the word "hatch" nowhere to be seen?

      I love this car! I regret never shelling out the money to buy the M Coupe hatch. If only I could go back in time.

        You can still buy an M Coupe. You can pick up a 2007 for around 27k.

      Honestly, it seems like the form of the car follows function, and I can see some merits in that. The shape alllows it to comfortably fits 4 people, AWD, a V12 and a reasonably sized trunk while being as small as possible. I like it... It's as close as Ferrari should ever get to building a SUV.

      What a horrifically ugly car. The worst thing to ever roll out of the Ferrari factory.

      For those (I am NOT one of them) who find the Porsche Panamera "Ugly", THIS Atrocity is FAR, FAR Uglier.
