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.

Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa race on snow with latest Ferrari FF

The two Scuderia Ferrari drivers Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa have engaged in a most unusual parallel slalom race, with the snow-capped mountains of Madonna di Campiglio in the backdrop. They went head to head through the gates at the wheel of two Ferrari FFs, which is the revolutionary four-seater four-wheel-drive Prancing Horse vehicle.

The vehicle proved to be very entertaining as they drove on the slopes of the demanding hills and as they undertook endless changes of direction laid out on the downhill slalom course.

Alonso and Massa were able to safely handle the 660 horsepower V12 in the very low grip environment due to the essential 4WD traction system. This system deals with the frequently changing and variable amount of torque on each wheel independently, with fully integrated electronic control systems.

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.

A couple of months after the Ferrari FF was unveiled, it was allowed to be test-driven and one of those who reviewed the radical four-seater is Jason H. Harper of Bloomberg News. Last January, Ferrari announced that the $300,000 FF would be its first-ever four-wheel-drive model. Harper got behind the wheel of this V-12-powered vehicle and drove into the Dolomite mountains of northern Italy.

He took the Ferrari FF through several thickly stacked switchbacks and steered it uphill while pressing on the gas to engage the fwd.

Harper claims that on a particularly sharp turn, he only heard a slight chirp in the tires. He then brought the FF further up the hill at a speed of around 100kph. The FF is mostly quiet except for the howl of the front-mounted 651-hp motor.
