Going by the spy-shots, the front fascia of the 2016 Ferrari FF seems to have grown a bit with redesigned grille taking the centre stage. The headlamps also flaunt a revised styling with the teaser image revealing new tail-lamps and air intakes. It is also being learnt that Ferrari might offer a carbon fiber roof. Inside the cabin, there would be subtle changes and it is expected to be carried over from the current model. However, reports have indicated that the new FF would feature an updated infotainment system with Google Play. Just so you know, the aforementioned infotainment system would be borrowed from the California T.

For those asking, the ongoing Ferrari FF derives its power from a 6.3-litre V12 motor. It develops 651 hp of maximum power and 504 pound-feet of highest torque. Undoubtedly, it is immensely powerful but the FF facelift is believed to be even more powerful with power output as high as 690 hp. It would be linked to an 8-speed transmission which would replace the current 7-speed speed dual-clutch transmission. Also, the all-wheel-drive system of the supercar would see an update. Apparently, Ferrari would also roll out a new base variant of the FF with a V8 bi-turbo motor. This engine, sourced from the 488 GTB, would deliver 660hp of top power and 560 lb-ft of peak torque.
