The Ferrari FF will make its first UK public appearance at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in late June. The FF, Maranello’s new flagship GT, showcases a number of firsts for the Prancing Horse. A four-seater, front-engined V12 with a controversial shooting-brake profile, it boasts Ferrari’s first four-wheel drive system, patented as 4RM and claimed to be 50% lighter than conventional systems.

Also putting in an appearance at Goodwood will be a 458 Italia, and a California. In addition to contemporary road-going cars, Ferrari’s racing heritage will be in evidence, with several privately-owned cars on display in the Cathedral Paddock (full details below). Providing further camera-fodder for the British Tifosi, Scuderia Ferrari will be demonstrating their 2009 F1 car, with Marc Gené at the wheel.
