The Fast and Furious of the Ferrari FF and its 651 hp Engine
It has four seats, it is AWD, it has 651 horsepower, it moves from 0 to 62 mph in 3.7 seconds and, who in the world would pay $300,000 for a car? Well, I guess Miley Cyrus might, she earns $20,000,000 a year and what is $300,000 compared to that?
It is the new blur called Ferrari FF with a rear hatch to carry groceries, just like a 1975 Chevy Vega. In fact, put the rear seats down and you have 29 cubic feet of storage. Think of all that space for the groceries to spread out in as you floor it. Even though the car weighs more than two tons, its 6.3L V12 engine, 48 valve engine is so fast one expects it to take off on the straight stretch. No cop would ever catch the crook in this unless they lay spikes down in the road. After all, it does have a top speed of 207 mph.
Naturally, a car like is not expected to get good fuel economy, and the FF barely squeeks out a 60's average of 11 mpg in the city and 18 mpg on the highway. Lets not forget about the highway, after all, any car's speed is curtailed by the speed limit and CHP, so buying such a car is a tease for the owner- they want to floor it. They want the rush of speed and yet, will never experience it. While the car is a fast one, it ain't small. It is 16 ft long and 6.5 feet wide but it does have seven gears to shift through!
Owning any Ferrari is pure status symbol for being rich and maybe famous. One also has to always baby the car wherever they drive it. They have to worry about it. About parking it. About driving in everyday traffic. Worry about vandals and thugs steeling it. It is NOT a drive and forget car. Oh, did I tell you that in 11 seconds, the car is already at 124 mph?
I, mean, who would not want this as a daily driver? LOL.

Odds are if you are under 40 yrs, you have never even heard of a Chevy Corvair as they stopped making them in 1969. Some 20-30 somethings think they are a Japanese car. If you were a kid in the mid to late 60's, you...
Join this long list of consumer problems and complaints about this car. Most o the problems are on models pre-2009. Many sad stories.
