The FF also grabs the headlines for its engine arrangement.
Under the bonnet it will hold the most powerful engine Ferrari has ever built in the form of a new 6.2-litre V12 engine. Mated to a transaxle dual-clutch F1 transmission, the FF has a massive output of 650bhp allowing the car to clear 0-62mph in 3.7seconds with a top speed of 208mph.
This translates into wince-inducing CO2 emissions of 360g/km and a combined fuel consumption of 18.3mpg - a slight improvement on the 612 Scaglietti whose 470g/km CO2 emissions and 13.8mpg combined cycle were shocking.
Another area the FF improves on its predecessors is in terms of practicality. Despite retaining Ferrari's typical three-door arrangement, it is longer and taller than the 612 Scaglietti meaning interior space and luggage space is not far off the Ford Focus estate.
Those of you that would like to get an up close peek at Ferrari's first-ever four-wheel drive model that also features a front mounted 660HP V12 and seating for four with a boot capacity of 450 liters, will have to make plans to visit next month's Geneva Motor Show, which will host the FF's world premiere.
