Default AWD from Ferrari caught testing..pics inside

Hi guys, like i mentioned in my RWD Gallardo post about a 4x4 system being developed by ferrari, well its already been caught testing, i am posting the link here, have a look...though it seems to coming in the face lifted 612(ugly piece of crap), but it will most likely trickle down to 430 successor and a facelifted 599.

Also this system is different than regular ones where there is additional drivetrain loss only when the system is in use and in all other times it will behave like a rwd.



Spied: 4×4 Ferrari 612! No Kidding, Folks

4X4 meaning AWD here, 4x4 is not meant for rough terrain, it is meant for better grip off the line and it is meant for difficult handling maneuvers and for little better traction for high hp cars hence the need of a awd lambo, audi etc etc..

Dino will be much smaller in size than the F430 and will be in the vantage - GT40 price range.

It might also not use the name Dino or Ferrari.

That's just an AWD Ferrari 612. It's quite old news by now.
Was posted in WCF website some weeks ago.

This Ferrari will change many things we have in mind of a Ferrari I think.

Actually not, i posted this here a day befoe WFC posted it on their website, I should know I am a regular on their website for years now.

If you want news quicker than WFC, goto autoblog, they gather news much faster than WFC.

Cheers
