The first thing most people associate with the Ferrari name is huge power. The FF obliges with a 651 horsepower 6.3-liter V12 engine shoved as far back under the hood as possible to improve weight balance.

Of course, pumping out lots of horsepower, especially when you've got all that engine to work with, is the easy part, relatively speaking. (Not that anyone should sniff at 103 horsepower per liter.) The really impressive thing about a Ferrari, including the FF, is how nicely it handles all that brawn.
