Whats this? A new Ferrari? and finally a new post too?!?

Finally, the moment we have all been waiting for, after all the spyshots, and speculation, the Maranello gang's got their newest prancing horse to add to the stable and boy do we have news for you; it's a hatch-back?

Detail, pics and video after the break.

The Ferrari FF, or Ferrari Four,  is slated to be the replacement for the 612 Scaglietti.

Powering it will be a 6.3 liter v-12 engine equipped with a new direct-injection system. It's been set to provide 651 bhp (at 8000 rpm) and 504 lb-ft of torque. Just the right amount to get the 3,946 lb FF from a stand still to 62 MPH in 3.7 seconds. It's also going to be able to get up to 208 MPH.

The FF is also going to get Ferrari's first ever All-wheel-drive system. Ferrari is proud to let us know that their 4RM system is 50% lighter then conventional systems and still manages to give the car a decent weight distribution with 53% over the rear axle. This sparkly new AWD system is completely integrated with the electronic dynamic control systems; the AWD system utilizes a continuous predictive torque system which predicts conditions to evenly distribute power to all 4 wheels.

Some more fancy crap the car has is its got some kind of magnetorheological damping system (I didn't make that word up), which I have heard is done with a covert tech trade with GM.

The most obvious thing is it's huge ass which has all kinds of die-hard Ferrari fans vomiting left and right. Me on the other hand, I'm not a die-hard Ferrari fan, so I am aloud to think freely and intelligently; with that, I think it looks like the Devil's own Z3M.

Maybe it does defy convention of what a Ferrari should be, but convention is boring.
