Playing with the list of optional extras for a Ferrari FF gives one the opportunity to come across quite a few features that can provide a thrilling experience.
Let’s take the color of our test car, for example. We’ve seen a Ferrari FF dressed in White and it looks a bit dull, but the vehicle we drove turns to the special color line, using Bianco Italia, a pearlescent shade of white. If you’re the kind of person for whom “retro” is an important word, Ferrari also allows you to dip your car into one of the many Historical Colors.
The wheels of the Ferrari FF sit at 20 inches regardless of the design chosen and you can select between multiple colors for the calipers hidden inside them.
Extroverts can go for the chromed front grille, as well as for the Scuderia Ferrari shields and sport exhaust system. Going further, we would recommend the stone chipping protection and the lift system, so you can keep your FF in top shape.
One of the options that has the most dramatic effect on the car is the panoramic sunroof. The FF receives a glass area that runs almost the full length of the roof. What’s more, since the front and rear metallic roof structures are slim, you’re almost tricked into believing that the windscreen, roof and rear window are a single piece of glass.
There is an area where the FF leaves certain things to be desired and this is the infotainment. We’ve already talked about the fact that the Chrysler Group’s part sharing strategy has brought the same navigation inside this Ferrari and the Jeep Wrangler. In addition, the best audio system available on the Ferrari FF comes from Harman Kardon, delivering 1,280 watts in 16-channel stereo QuantumLogic surround form. That’s proper performance, but it wouldn’t hurt to see Ferrari joining forces with a company such as Bang & Olufsen.
Step inside the FF with the list of options in your hand, and you be able to play with leather and Alcantara in a plethora of colors and a stunning number of areas and combinations. If you insist, you can even have Alcantara carpets, including in the boot.
There are three types of finishes available for the seats. Perhaps due to the folding nature of the front seats or the comfort aura of the car, there are no carbon fiber seats available. However, you can opt for a carbon fiber steering wheel, which comes with LEDs that indicate the revs.
Aside from the carbon fiber trim, Ferrari allows you to choose a proprietary material called Alutex, a composite that looks like the love child of carbon fiber and aluminum - this is also offered for the steering wheel. If you want to go for something more colorful, you can have a painted dashboard trim.
In addition to that, the luggage area gets its fair share of options, ranging from a luggage kit to a golf bag.
The Ferrari FF may be a revolutionary machine, but this doesn’t apply to the current chapter. Even though the Ferrari Four offers certain items that are a delight to have, it doesn’t manage to push the boundaries of its class - these limits are, let’s face it, hilarious when compared to the price tags of such vehicles.Continue reading
