Ferrari FF Neiman Marcus Edition is the perfect gift for this Christmas

Article by Christian Andrei, on October 19, 2011

Last year we had the Chevrolet Camaro Convertible, but this year it appears that Neiman Marcus has something more expensive in its annual Christmas Book featuring gifts for the holidays: this is the Ferrari FF Neiman Marcus Edition. Priced at $375,000 the Ferrari FF Neiman Marcus Edition is with $75k more expensive than the standard version but, as expected, there are few things that make it unique.

First of all, the car will get a unique exterior colors called Grigio Caldo while the interior has a semianiline leather with a matching custom luggage set.

Moreover, the FF comes with Ferrari’s seven-year maintenance plan but also with the ticket at the 2012 Ferrari Winter Driving Experience in Aspen. And to make things even more interesting, the Ferrari FF Neiman Marcus Edition will be limited to just 10 units.

Each of them will carry firm’s first ever four-wheel drive system. Under the hood we will find the same 6,262 cc direct injection engine which develops 660 hp @ 8,000 rpm and 683 Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a dual-clutch F1 gearbox and the FF is able to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.7 seconds and has a top speed of 335 km/h or 208 mph.

The Ferrari FF is probably the only vehicle capable of translating its superb capabilities even on low grip coefficient terrains. This is due to its patented and in-house developed 4RM four-wheel drive configuration, which maintains torque delivery to the rear wheels while also optimally distributing it to the front wheels whenever needed on low grip surfaces. This torque distribution occurs individually for each wheel because the dynamic vehicle controls consisting of the E-Diff, F1-Trac and PTU have all been centralised under a main CPU.

A superbly dynamic drive experience is ensured, thanks to the transaxle architecture implemented on the Ferrari FF. This means that the engine is situated at mid-front and the gearbox is above the rear axle. The weight distribution with 53% rearward orientation also contributes to the vehicle’s sportive performance. Overall weight has been methodically reduced by utilising new engine castings, new aluminium alloys for the body and advanced production procedures among others.

For the interior, improvements have been done through advance material applications, including magnesium for the seats. The third generation Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes have become more lightweight and durable, showing almost no wear under normal road usage. Aggregately, these innovations are responsible for the FF’s outstanding 2.7 kg/CV power-weight ratio which is unprecedented in its class.

Ferrari FF displays the trademark styling by Pininfarina with its lines highlighting the way sportiness and versatility have been combined to perfection. Its spacious interior seats four passengers in comfortable body-hugging seats. The independent foldability of the rear seats increases cargo volume to 800 litres, 450 of which are from the boot. Thus, the Ferrari FF accommodates more cargo than all its counterparts and even many four-door saloons as well.
