Ferrari recruited former World Rally Champion, Markku Alen, to take the Ferrari FF on a 14 km (8.7 mi) forest track run in Arjeplog, Sweden, about 100 km (62 mi) south of the Arctic Circle. Famous for his saying, "now maximum attack," the Finnish ice racing specialist and winner of the 1978 World Rally Championship shows us he's still got the chops.

The Ferrari FF packs a huge 6.3-liter V12 producing 660 PS (485 kW / 651 hp) and 683 Nm (504 lb-ft) of torque. Thanks to its front-mid mounted engine and trans, weight distribution is an even 53 percent to the rear. Combined with a 4RM four-wheel drive system, the FF is a competant vehicle in such extreme conditions at temperatures between -15 and -30 degrees Celsius.
