Snow Is Coming: Get Your FF & WRC Hero Out!
The snow is finally falling in parts of the UK, all over mainland Europe and beyond. Yes! Finally, some slowly sideways shenanigans is on the cards! And Ferrari obviously had the same idea, with their new FF – the world's first 4WD prancing horse. Here is is being driven by former World Rally Champion and childhood hero, Markku Alen on the Arjeplog track, in Northern Sweden – about 100 km South of the Arctic Circle. Ferrari say: "The track is probably the most challenging surface for Ferrari's latest 12-cylinder which features an innovative 4RM four-wheel drive system that has fascinated the international press and clients, and was highly praised by Markku, the Finnish ice track specialist and winner of the World Rally Championship in 1978. At temperatures between -15° and -30° Celsius on the steep inclines and challenging corners of the 14km "Forest" track, Markku Alen was able to test the FF to extremes, particularly the car's traction on surfaces with extremely low grip. Thanks to the perfect weight distribution and the car's mechanical set up, the FF again demonstrated its safety, stability and performance, with Markku commenting that the FF is especially enjoyable to drive, even for a former World Champion." Tough job, but someone had to do it... and why not a WRC legend eh?!
