In this case, FF stands for floating Ferrari.
Flash floods hit Cleveland, Ohio, on June 30, and covered many roads in deep water. Unless you have something like WaterCar’s amphibious Panther, vehicles don’t tend to make good watercraft. One motorist’s video of the bad weather catches a Ferrari FF with water up to its front bumper on a flooded section of road.
The image above shows how the road looks when not covered in standing water. The Ferrari is on an off ramp from Interstate 480 to Ridge Road. The interstate sits higher than the road below, which allows rain to collect there during a flash flood like this one.
There’s no way to know the extent of the damage to the Ferrari, but it doesn’t look good. The lights are off, which suggests the ignition is off, possibly due to the high water level. If the V12 sucks in too much rain, it’s could be a boat anchor at this point.
Ferrari debuted the FF in 2011 as something very different from the brand. The two-door shooting brake wasn’t like the brand’s usual front-engine grand tourers or mid-engine sports cars. Making it even weirder, the model had an all-wheel drive system with torque vectoring for routing power to each corner. A 6.3-litre V12 produced 651 horsepower and 504 pound-feet of torque, and the engine routed through a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
The Prancing Horse replaced the FF in 2016 with the GTC4Lusso. The styling didn’t change very much. However, Ferrari pushed the V12 to 680 hp and 515 lb-ft. Plus, the model gained rear-wheel steering. Later, the company added a 610-hp 3.9-litre biturbo V8 to the rear-wheel drive only GTC4Lusso T.
