The FF is a seriously expensive car. Not just to buy, but to run too. Fuel costs will be punishing if you are always extracting its best performance. Remember, too, that V12 Ferraris rarley keep their value like the company's V8s. Thought the idiosyncracy and rarity of the FF will be in its favour.
Ferrari FF quality & reliability
Ferrari build quality is now as good as anyone's in most respects. The engines are built to race standards and the gearbox is sourced from German transmission manufacturers Getrag, so the mechanicals should prove reliable, although the four-wheel -drive system is an unknown quantity. Interior construction appears to be excellent, but the sat-nav wouldn’t look out of place in a Fiat Punto.
Ferrari FF safety & security
Ferrari claims the FF’s aluminium passenger cell is so strong that the car doesn't need lateral airbags, but you get them anyway, as well as front airbags, seatbelt pre-tensioners and all the crash-preventing traction- and braking aids you could ask for. You’ll need to be a brick-wielding vandal to get into an FF without the key, while driving it away will be beyond the wit of even the most determined deviant. Selling it on without the relevant paperwork could prove a little tricky too.
