Ferrari has always been known to pioneer the automotive industry in style and class, and with the new FF they will certainly revolutionize the game.
I say “they” as if I’m not part of the family. Truth is, when I was hatched, I couldn’t believe what I saw: A Ferrari with all the fine tunings of a vehicle you could cruise around suburbia with, take to the city on a business trip or fly on the open road out in the country. For the first time, Ferrari is offering a sports car that defines a brand, but also punctuates diversity. That’s me.
The sport performance has the engine revving from 0 to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds, which has my makers thinking I might be the fastest four-seat car in the world.
Don’t even get me started on my all-wheel-drive system. The front differential, patented by Ferrari, allows for a smoother transition from 0 to 60 and an overall exhilarating driving performance not yet captured.
From the front, you experience that normal aggressive and sleek Ferrari trademark look, but once you turn for a side view, you’ll notice my shorter back and trim door panels.
Judge me for yourself, but it’s obvious my elegance, brilliance and formidable continuity of mass casualness offers something Ferrari and the automotive industry have never been involved with before. Time to take a ride and enjoy the pleasure. Join the revolution and be an icon like me.
