8th - Ferrari FF 2012 bianco avus

The Ferrari FF is fantastic and incredible. Drove it since new (June 15th, 2012) for 8,500 klms (not one single problem) all over Europe and each day I was more amazed with the quality of all the details. You can drive it like a F1 or like a Rolls. You choose...
Now with 15,000 klms. and fastest speed ever in the Bundesautobahn... Still not a problem, only pleasure from the best car in the world. Have been deliciously traveling in Europe with my wife and two of my grownup children !!!

seriously quick, Sr. d'Orey! the factory states 335km/h as the absolute max for the FF. Imagine what that would have felt like in 1959 at Reims in your old Centro Sud 250F approaching the Thillois hairpin!

Serious welcome to FerrariChat; I missed your post last year but delighted to see it now and to welcome you here. Delighted also that the FF delights you. Initially I was not thrilled by the styling but, depending on the paint, it works for me now.

Thank you... It was incredible! No eletronics, no seat belts, no guard rails and the speed at the end of that long straight downhill was well over 300 klms. But at the time I felt very safe.

Of course you all felt very safe; no one knew better! Thanks also for the wonderful photo. I was at Reims for the 1960 G.P. de France, the first G.P. I ever attended. On my way to Paris for a year of graduate studies at the Faculte de Droit. And driving a 356 Porsche Super 90 at the Autodrome de Linas-Montlhery where I am certain you also must have raced.
P.S. you will think I am crazy but despite the photo being unclear, it looks to me from the treads that your 250F was on Dunlop Racing tyres.

P.P.S. Your FF before the Lutetia reminds me that the girl I met in Paris and almost married lived at 33 rue de Grenelle au coin de la rue de la Chaise, perhaps a four minute walk from the Lutetia. Have dined at le Recamier just across the rue de Sevres from the Hotel. Quels souvenirs de mon ancien quartier!

Saw in your GARAGE that your 4 very nice Ferrari are the same color. I want to do the same and am waiting for my F12 Bianco Avus.

Not yet. I am enjoying so much the FF that am in no hurry to get the F12. Am not pressing and probably it will arrive by the end of summer.

Thank you for your kind words.
Must tell you that until I received my Ferrari FF in June 2012 and drove it for the first time my imagination could not conceive such a perfection in a car. The engine is awsome, the power is comparable to F1 cars I raced, now in a very confortable Four Four. After 15.000 km all over Europe with not a single problem every day I drive it the sensation of pleasure amazes me.

Thank you FERRARI for this fantastic automobile that is brightening my old age.

FF and F12

Given the fact that you own the FF, do you think that the F12 will be that much better then your FF?
I drove the F12, no doubt a great car, but I must say that it was very similar to the FF without the added ability of the FF 4 wheel drive and 4 seats.
Will be intersting to hear your opinion?
Thanks

The F12 is a little more nervous and a little more fast, but very little. I drove it for 30 minutes and confess that is a extraordinary machine. But my FF is also extraordinary and incredible and as you say it has advantages that after 15,000 km I can not live without anymore.
When my F12 arrives I will tell you whitch I will drive more...

That will be VERY interesting! I'm looking forward to taking the SottoZeros off in a few weeks and putting the PZeros on. The acceleration is stupid fast now, it should be far better with sticky rubber on the car!
