Fiat Chrysler’s five-year product strategy it unveiled in 2014 included a plan for Ferrari that would give all of the automaker’s models an eight-year life span with an updated version, or ‘Modifacto’, coming four years after the car’s debut. That means the Ferrari FF, first introduced in 2012, is just about due for its Modifacto update.
The updated Ferrari FF could be with us by as soon as the Geneva Motor Show, with Motor Authority reporting that Ferrari has already sent out invitations to a special debut event ahead of the show. The event is expected to debut a new a V-12 grand tourer with 2+2 seating, alluding rather obviously to the arrival of a new FF.
Also pointing to the debut of an updated FF are spy shots taken of a prototype car undergoing tests last year. The prototypes had camouflage covering sections of the front end, leading us to believe a new front fascia will be applied to the FF along with some other minor styling tweaks. Revisions to the FF’s 650 horsepower 6.3-liter V12 are believed to be in store as well, with power rising from 651 horsepower to around 700.
The new FF will debut on February 15, two weeks before the 2016 Geneva Motor Show kicks off on March 1.
