Ferrari leapfrog Pentax with its new FF flagship!

Ferrari now joins the FF "revolution".

Not sure if this is old news but Ferrari is now releasing its new FF flagship. Price is not cheap (as expected) but the performance is guaranteed to please any buyer.

Look no further here. The FF unveiled on Ferrari.com

Will Ferrari release a MF version next?

That won't be hideous when you see it on the road Yeatzee !

This is an obvious response to the Porsche Panamera which I see literally every day now in Shanghai. They'll sell a truckload of these over here.

Raider - probably only MF ! Ferrari only sell manuals I heard a funny story from the Ferrari dealership ; some people buy a Ferrari and then hire a driver for it as they can't use manual (that's stick-shift to our American friends). Hilarious.

Frogfish, I refuse to believe that Ferrari's FF offering does not have auto mode! Even Pentax's lowest range has auto for beginners!

It's a smiley car!

At least someone's making a hatchback, anyway.

Maybe a bright yellow one, you know, for those occasions when you just need to say, "Giddyap, smiley car, we need excessive horsepower immediately! "

You guys don't like the look?

I find the look familiar though....kinda remind me of something/someone else.

Attachment 82047
Attachment 82048

don't they look alike? albeit the 2nd pic is not a ferrari and has no real headlights...and the ferrari has black teeth (i think the oral hygiene is not that cool) and the 2nd car has white sparkling teeth (though only 1 tooth per jaw but that tooth is huge).

But having said that, the Ferrari is definitely the one to buy..why? Because it is a photographer's car! It is FF!!

You're right; I does look like it's Front Focusing.

I agree. Looks like they welded the ass end of a Gremlin on one of their 2 seaters.

You need that: it goes fast.

Any Gremlin resemblance might actually be why I like it as these things go. I think most of my favorite sporty cars have that kind of swoopy shape, though. I used to want a old Alfa GTV or Alfetta.

I think my favorite Ferrari is the old Daytona, I think it is. (Like the fake one on Miami Vice but not a roadster) Looks like they're sort of doing something like that.

I didn't dislike the Gremlin. AMC gave it an appropriate name and it inspired a whole generation of hatchback cars. It just took Ferrari 40 years to jump on the bandwagon. All they need now is a pick up truck.
