Ferrari introduces the FF's new V12 GDI engine - plus more FF videos [video]

Video provides technical details on the FF's 6.3 liter V12 GDI unit as well as on the 7-speed gearbox and the new multi-link suspension.

Here's a set of videos by Ferrari detailing the new FF model.

The top video begins with a graphic imaging detailing the FF's new V12 GDI engine as well as providing a view of the gearbox and new suspension system.

That new V12 GDI is a naturally-aspirated 6.3 liter unit with direct-injection and an output of 660 PS (485 kW / 651 bhp) and 683 Nm (504 lb-ft) of torque. It features the highest compression ratio of any unit in its segment and a sophisticated high-pressure injection system.

The video also shows the dual-clutch, seven-speed gearbox which Ferrari says has zero shift times. That's right - perfect gear changes.

We also get to see that E-Diff technology borrowed from Ferrari's F1 experience with two sets of multi-disc clutches on the rear axle, each one driving one wing of it.

The video explains too the FF's new multi-link suspension with magnetologic dampers which provide an extremely quick response time and minimize body roll.

As for the two videos published below here, one demonstrates the cabin versatility of the FF while the other is a making-of the FF's official video.

The Ferrari FF, though, is already sold out for the year.
