Ferrari opened its first Tailor–Made Centre of Asia Pacific in Shanghai and in order to celebrate this event the Italian manufacturer unveiled two special V12 models. The two special Tailor–Made V12 flagship models that share the brand spirit in Chinese way are the F12berlinetta Polo Edition and the FF Dressage Edition.
Wearing the Year of the Horse logo on the steering wheel and centre console, the F12berlinetta Polo Edition and FF Dressage Edition are inspired by horse racing which is perfectly integrated with the art of Ferrari Tailor- Made.
The Ferrari F12berlinetta Polo Edition is inspired by the polo and customized to showcase the power and speed. It comes with a body painted in a Bianco Italia Opaco colour with special navy blue stripes on the bonnet.
Inside, we find high-quality leather upholstery as well as carbon fiber design elements. Under the hood, there is a 6.3-liter V12 engine that delivers 740 hp and 690 Nm of torque, bolted to the F1 dual-clutch transmission with closer gear rations developed for this model’s performance.
Ferrari’s F12berlinetta hits 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.1 seconds, to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 8.5 seconds, while top speed is in excess of 200 mph or 320 km/h.
The Ferrari FF Dressage Edition is inspired by the elegant equestrian sport and comes painted in Black Piano Nero, while the interior is trimmed with reddish saddle brown leader. The front seats feature a stylish grid-pattern sewing style, essential for a versatile 4RM GT car.
Power comes from a 6.3-liter V12 engine that generates 660 hp and 683 Nm of torque. Bolted to a dual-clutch F1 gearbox that delivers the power to an intelligent four-wheel drive system dubbed 4RM (four-wheel drive), the FF sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.7 seconds, while top speed is 335 km/h or 208 mph.
The Ferrari FF uniquely guarantees this amazing performance on terrain that have low grip coefficients, due to Ferrari's patented 4RM four-wheel drive arrangement. The rear wheels still deliver torque, but the PTU (Power Transfer Unit) makes sure that required torque also goes to the front wheels when needed on low-grip surfaces. The FF intelligently supplies torque to each wheel individually, because all the dynamic vehicle controls (E-Diff, F1-Trac and PTU) are integrated into one CPU.
Excellent sporty drives are guaranteed by the FF's transaxle structure (mid-front engine with gearbox over the rear axle) and with 53% of its weight located at the rear. Detailed attention was given when lowering the weight in the engine (new castings), bodyshell (new aluminium alloys and production processes), and other components. The cabin is also optimised by using high-tech materials like magnesium in the seating.
Third-generation Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes are lighter and more durable, with almost no wear during normal road use. All these innovations combine to create an exceptional weight to power ratio of 2.7 kg/CV, a new standard for this type of vehicle.
