Ferrari Unveils AWD Ferrari Four

Ferrari recently released pictures of its new all-wheel-drive "Ferrari Four" which features four seats and four wheel drive for the first time, and the images came with some mixed reviews.
In addition to being the most powerful and versatile four-seater car Ferrari has ever produced, the AWD system in the "FF" weighs approximately 50% less than a conventional system. The car, which is set to debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March, also features a brand new V12 engine and a dual-clutch F1 transmission.
I really think I'll need to see this car in person before making a definitive judgment call on its design. It appears to have similar proportions to the Porsche Panamera, which I am not terribly fond of. The side profile just looks awkward in my opinion, but I understand their need for proper weight distribution (53% rear). Also, there has been some speculation that this vehicle and its AWD will be a prelude for a Ferrari SUV, but that's all just rumor. Am I the only person who thinks that Enzo Ferrari is rolling over in his grave?

  1. I have some mixed feelings about the design- I agree the side profile really makes it look awkward.

  5. I really can't stand that whole Porsche Panamera/Honda Crosstour proportion. Not digging this design at all.

  9. uh....why?!
    haha. And yeah, Scion sponsors metal/hiphop/underground sub culture shit but only in areas like LA, Atlanta, etc that don't have well established public transportation and rely heavily on cars. Sneaky huh? No free shows in NYC or San Fran anytime soon.

  15. I have no problem making judgements without seeing it. This thing is a prime example of HO Business. A bomb by ferrari. This thing looks like a suburban hatchback with an edge and a V12? This thing will probably be a hit with women.

  23. Looks nice indeed, don;t like the colour though.

  24. I love Ferrari, this is awesome.

  25. I agree with the SUV thoughts. You increase the height (size) of this thing and it looks a lot like the Porsche SUV.. As a taller SUV it might be nice looking but here again I agree. The proportions are HIDEOUS!

  26. I'm usually a fan of Ferraris, but to me, this car is damn ugly! So weirdly-shaped and just...disgusting. Maybe it's just the photos - I hope so.

  27. A pretty bold move of Ferrari. I can't entirely say I agree with it though. It looks very off balance and like another Magnum/glorified stationwagon.
