There’s no way around it: The Ferrari FF is strange. In a Ferrari lineup that’s full of beautiful coupes and roadsters, it’s a hatchback with four seats and a V12 under the hood. And now, it’s getting a makeover. But if you’re an FF hater, don’t get too excited: The new model is keeping most of its weirdness intact.
It is, however, changing its name. Beginning next year, the FF will be known as the Ferrari GTC4 Lusso, a name that recalls two older Ferrari models. What doesn’t recall old Ferrari models is the hatchback design, standard all-wheel drive and the 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, all carried over from the FF.
But there are a few big tweaks besides the name. For instance, the 6.3-liter V12 gets a power boost from last year’s already insane 650 horsepower to a monstrous 680 horses. The all-wheel-drive system is also tweaked for more grip and better handling. And then there’s the styling, which is updated with a nip here, a tuck there and, most importantly, Ferrari’s signature quad taillights.
Ferrari hasn’t yet revealed the price, but don’t expect it to be cheap. The Ferrari FF starts at $295,000, and we find it hard to believe these updates could possibly lower that number.
