A four-wheel-drive hatchback Ferrari FF was enough for many of the brand’s lieges to cry foul, yet there is no denying that the execution of the Ferrari Four (FF) has been nothing short of exemplary. It’s a four-seater family hauler made to be driven hard—anytime, anywhere, in rain, sleet or snow. Yes, the post office would love it. The heart of the FF’s all-wheel-drive system is the 4RM Control system which combines the Fl-Trac, E-Diff and Power Transfer Unit (PTU) control systems into one, allowing it to manage both traction and stability. The 4RM utilizes these systems and predictive software to estimate the maximum amount of torque each wheel can handle without wheel spin. This system also ensures that the front axle is receiving power when absolutely necessary, like when the driver is accelerating out of a turn in low grip conditions. This is something that will have the Ferrari guard sleeping a little easier. While many may scoff at the idea of tremendous luggage space and four seats in a Ferrari, the truth is in the drive. Never before has Ferrari provided such an intelligent, stable and powerful drive.
