Who Needs A GTC4Lusso When You Can Have A Novitec-Tuned FF?

Ferrari presented the FF to the world at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show as the replacement of the (mostly unloved) 612 Scaglietti.

Beneath that appealing, shooting break-like design, the grand tourer has a more powerful engine and, for the first time, an all-wheel drive system that made it a peach to use even during the winter.

Flat out, the FF can hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.7 seconds from a standstill and go up to 208 mph (335 km/h). It’s powered by a naturally aspirated 6.3-liter V12 shared with several other cars made in Maranello, including the GTC4Lusso, with 651 hp (660 PS / 486 kW) and 504 lb-ft (683 Nm) of torque.

The example that you’re about to see carving the canyons on the clip below isn’t stock. In fact, it paid a visit to Novitec, where it received a power upgrade, although we’re not sure about the exact numbers. In any case, the tuner offers an ECU remap and a stainless steel exhaust system that boosts output to 679 hp (688 PS / 507 kW) and 517 lb-ft (701 Nm) of torque.

FF owners who wanted a bit more could have went for two other engine upgrades, with Novitec promising 684 hp (694 PS / 510 kW) and 522 lb-ft (708 Nm) of torque, and 692 hp (702 PS / 516 kW) and 527 lb-ft (714 Nm) of torque, respectively.

The extra power is accompanied by a body kit, new alloy wheels and a customized interior with more leather and carbon fiber trim.

    I don’t know, the fact that the GTC4 Lusso looks better, drives better, is (overall) more modern and that the interior is much nicer.

    But apart from those things, who needs the GTC when you have a slightly tuned FF.
