The Prancing Horse brand has launched the teasing campaign that will culminate with the introduction next month of the refreshed FF model.
The model should make its official public debut before March’s Geneva Motor Show to enjoy some prime time in the spotlight alone – with the tipped event being the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este in February. The facelift for the model should boast a new front end with a modernized grille and updated headlights. The teaser the company shared with the world also hints at the possibility of having a new set of taillights and tweaked out air intakes. The reports flying around the rumor mill have also called for the addition of a carbon fiber roof and some active aerodynamic components to improve the car’s handling. As for the cabin the rumors paint a bleaker picture – mostly carryover from the predecessor save for the upgraded infotainment system and some regular trim and upholstery option changes.
The current FF uses under the hood a massive naturally-aspirated 6.3-liter V12 engine with 651 horsepower and 504 pound-feet of torque sending its power to all four wheels. These are serious credentials but the updated model could also brag with the level rising to up to 690 hp. The uprated engine is also expected to be matched by an all new eight-speed transmission and a refreshed all-wheel drive system. Some rumors – that need to be taken with a healthy dose of salt – also talked about a new base version taking the biturbo V8 engine from the 488 GTB and churning out 660 hp and 560 lb-ft of torque.
