Former World Rally Champion Markku Alen rose to the challenge of driving a Ferrari FF through a forest track totally covered in snow. A video of this event is available on Ferrari.com. Markku Alen drove the 12-cylinder FF on the highly difficult Arjeplog track, in Northern Sweden, located around 100 km to the South of the Artic Circle.
This FF features a very innovative 4RM four-wheel drive system that has caught the attention of the international press and clients.
One of those who had been in high praises of the FF is Finnish ice track specialist Markku Alen who had won the 1978 World Rally Championship. The 14km "Forest" track consists of difficult corners and steep inclines while being as cold as -15° to -30° Celsius.
He took the FF to extreme conditions, testing the car’s traction on surfaces that have exceptionally low grip. Because of the car’s ideal weight distribution and mechanical set-up, the FF showed just how stable and safe it is aside from offering top performance. Markku remarked that the FF is particularly fun to drive, even for a former World champion.
