The FF won’t be sent to Euro NCAP for testing, as with most supercars, so it’s hard to say definitively how it would react to being crashed. However, it has a strong aluminium chassis that should hold its own in the event of an accident.

As well as airbags for the driver and front passenger, the FF comes with a raft of safety systems aimed at keeping you pointing in the right direction.

Keeping that 650bhp engine in check is a sophisticated electronic stability control that can intervene during driving or braking in order to maintain balance.

You can adjust the amount of electronic intervention using the steering wheel mounted “Manettino” switch, which offers Ice-Snow and Wet settings for low-grip situations, Comfort for ease of use, Sport for enhanced driving pleasure and even ESC OFF, which disables the traction and stability systems completely.

The brakes themselves are enormous and very powerful, but controlled by an anti-lock mechanism and electronic brake distribution to ensure they are kept in check.

Finally the Ferrari four-wheel drive system shifts torque around depending on where the grip is, which should make it easy to control in slippery conditions, and keep you stuck firmly to the road surface.

OK, it’s easy to wax lyrical about this car, but Ferrari FF practicality is another thing that impresses. Let’s start with the 450-litre boot – bigger than the vast majority of family hatchbacks – available with matching tailored luggage if Sir fancies.

That’s equivalent to four standard-sized trolley cases or indeed a pair of golf bags. It goes without saying that a child’s buggy will fold into the boot too, though quite how often that’s likely to happen we’re not entirely sure.

Inside the boot has various layouts depending upon your requirements, with a swish Ferrari tool kit hidden underneath it all. The rear seats will fold down independently and with both folded, a maximum load area of 800 litres is realised.

The centre section between the rear seats will fold down too, which allows long items like skis and snowboards to fit when carrying four people. The hatch itself is a powered tailgate which can be opened via the keyfob or a button in the cabin.

You’ve got a central console with a storage cubby (including a 12-volt plug) and cup holder, while rear seat passengers get the same. There are air vents all around to compliment the dual-zone climate control.

Of course, as eluded to with the optional luggage, there’s a massive array of optional equipment on offer here too. Check the Equipment section for more information.
