why even cold weather test it. how many actually use their ferrari in the winter. guess they just wanted to drift in in the snow and makes for good marketing.

can any ferrari withstand the cold weather and actually run?

I think it is mandatory. The car is sold in countries that have snow and negative temperatures so they probably have to make sure it can actually run in those conditions, even though it probably never will.

It's not like BMW was the first company to make a car in this body style, either. I would post a bunch of pictures to make the point but I'm lazy today.

I kinda hate the front end. A lot. Otherwise it looks cool...

The important question, though... does this mean Ferrari will be competing in the WRC? Please? Please? So bored of 32 Fords and Citroens...

Of course not. Shooting brake's have been around for ever but the FF looks very similar to the M Coupe.

Finally, a Ferrari I want to own which is also perfect for a winter beater.
When I win the lottery that is.

Wow. Ferrari comes out with the Italia, and we all thought they're back to designing pretty cars and then this happens.
