My MD's Ferrari FF (video)
When my boss walked in today he looked unusually chipper. Half asleep, I brushed it off and continued to blankly stare at my computer screen- “maybe he got laid this weekend,” I thought.
A couple hours pass and he casually calls me into his office to talk about corpo-world nonsense. He says something about low hanging fruit and, right then, he casually brandishes a set of glaringly red keys right in front of my face.
Did he really just buy a Ferrari?
The WSO-esq, systematic analysis starts up- 50 something year old, recently divorced, typical A type personality- a seemingly perfect candidate for a mid life crisis. Even so, is he really trying to rub it in my face right now?
I take a peek into the parking lot and there it is. A brand spanking new Ferrari is sitting in the lot.
Even from afar, the sparkling Ferrari paint is unmistakable. But it’s a big body; the engine is at the front and it’s a damn big car. This one is a 12 cylinder, four-seater Ferrari FF. The car fanatic inside of me kicks in and I mentally begin to recite Car and Driver statistics.
For those that don’t know, the FF is Ferrari’s first four-wheel drive beast of a car. The FF packs 651-horse power to do a launch controlled 0-60 in 3.6 seconds. Yes, it is a hatchback, but who cares when you can roar down the road with your golf clubs, briefcase, and three kids all comfortably fit inside the car. In my opinion, the FF is the pinnacle of gas powered engineering.
Looking back, the whole meeting might have been some sick, carrot-on-the-stick ploy to get me to work harder. I can hear it now, “one day, if you work hard enough, you’ll have a $300K Rari just like me.” Whatever.
Watch the video above and tell me, if you had a Ferrari FF would you take it off road in the snow? Because I totally would. I know there are a lot of car junkies on here, so what do you say, is it worth the $300,000?
