2012 Ferrari FF AWD 660hp

A new 6.3-liter V12 powers the car, putting out a stout 660 hp at 8,000 rpm, just 10 hp less than the 599 GTO--now, that'll haul the freakin' groceries! As for torque, it's rated at a robust 504 lb-ft at 6,000 rpm.

The four-wheel-drive system is called 4RM. Ferrari has released few details on the patented system, but officials say it manages continuous torque distribution to all four wheels and weighs half of what a conventional four-wheel-drive system weighs..

Ferrari says that the FF--its name is an acronym for "Ferrari Four" (four seats, four-wheel drive)--replaces its 612 Scagletti and ushers in an entirely new GT sports-car concept. Noting that it will hit 62 mph in 3.7 seconds and top out at a smokin' 208 mph, we think Ferrari should include jet-propelled vehicles in the competitive set, too.
