''Perhaps the most interesting thing about the FF is the absence of a direct rival. Especially when you consider the price - £227,026. Probably the closest competitor is the Bentley Continental GT, but in truth they are very different cars. The Bentley heavier, more obviously four-wheel drive, and not as agile or fun to drive. The FF is not only quicker, but perhaps surprisingly also the more spacious.
Given all this, it is impossible not to be impressed with what Ferrari has achieved – in particular that it has incorporated the security and versatility of all-wheel drive while avoiding many of the traditional technical downsides (specifically weight).
The only word of caution though, is that the FF is a different type of Ferrari to a 599 or 458, and for anyone contemplating a purchase that is key to understand.''
