  • You know it’s a prestigious brand when $100,000 is considered a bargain 😂

    • @Andrew Delashaw underrated reply, Andrew, ppl like you make this platform worth staying on.

    • Considering a 2021 gmc Harley Davison truck is 100,000 grand, yes it's a bargain for so much more car

    • I'll hang on to my diesel focus. Fuel is now $7 per gallon in Ireland

    • Dude it goes without saying, Ferrai might be losing to a certain British car company but the name is still number one. Just went to a local car show and Ferrari brought 5 new Roma's just stunning.

    • @ACF IV He mentions it at 17:35....

  • Yeah the pricing sounds good now!However I’m sure the servicing and parts are still of a $350,000 car lol

    • Well it’s a big Italian v12, so I’d expect nothing less.

    • @Baher Maximos what other car? Range Rover/Land Rover. I almost bought a used Ferrari (lust mostly) but going to Ferrari owners forums and hearing the problems, I just gave up. My mustang runs fine.

    • When questionning servicing or gas cost it means this car is out of your budget.

    • @Tkcb 2799 Ok..

    • @Tony Valdez I speak German. Everything was correctly done with services. Stop denying the video evidence.

  • I personally LOVE this car. I love it's shooting brake style, I love the fact that is family usable, it does 0-60 in 3.4 seconds, a Ferrari V-12, and the paddles are METAL. I LOVE THIS CAR

    • Don’t forget the Grand Cherokee radio, amazing!

    • @Nolen Hughes Look at what DDE did to a Ferrari. Camo wrap. Snow lights. Snow tires.

    • Fr man, it's the perfect package

    • @Rick Johansson no

    • The paddles on my $200 pc gaming wheel are metal too 😂

  • Nice to see Doug actually mash the gas hard, most of the time he gives the car like 30% throttle and is like "wow the acceleration is amazing"

  • Doug's genuine teary-looking eyes as he shifts into gear! You can tell this ride was pleasurable for a car enthusiast, like the nostalgia you get from youth. So awesome you got to drive that car!

  • Ferrari Engineer: "Don't you think we should put 4 doors on this car?" Ferrari Engineer's Boss: "You're fired."

    • And then proceed to make the fucking Purosangue

    • @Luprez Tryson They're making the Purosangue.

    • ferrari engineer boss: you mean a hatchback?

    • Jose Mourinho has one

    • But if u pay enough money, Ferrari will make u a 4 door, like they did for the Sultan of Brunei

  • Homeless man: “spare change” Doug “cars and bids. Check out cars and bids.”

  • I distinctly remember a lot of auto journalists at the time saying the design of this car is a throwback to the breadvan or Ferrari shooting brakes of the past. I agree with that, i actually really like the styling of this car.

  • Hey Doug, This was my dream car back in the day. I’m really surprised how “basic” the interior looks. Do Ferrari have different trim levels/standards for the US? Here in Germany most luxury car makers produce cars with German trim levels, and an EU version of their cars with a lower quality interior.

  • I love the looks of this car and I wonder if the shape actually lends to the vehicle being more aerodynamic.

  • Shout out to the family who actually uses a car as intended despite brand and price. Lucky dogs to ride in a Ferrari too.

    • @Veganpotter Thevegan I ate a steak

    • I don't think Ferrari even intended this to be used the way they're using it. They wanted it to look a certain way for rich people that like hatchbacks for their style.

  • Doug after a few days -“ This is a Ferrari FF....and it’s mine.”

  • I was getting the DSG serviced at my favorite mechanic down in Huntington Beach. It’s a business park with lots of aftermarket mechanics. Next door is a McClaren mechanic but they were also servicing either an FF or GTC4Lusso. That car is insanely crazy. It’s a much more gigantic car than you think. I was really weirded out by its gigantic size. That’s a huge car.

  • I thought about getting one of these recently but ended up going for the GTC4Lusso instead. They've already depreciated 40%+, so I'm exposing myself to more future depreciation, but the Lussos are five years newer, still have manufacturer warranty, etc. I felt the probability of several extra years of reliable driving was worth it. Great GT car for family weekend trips. No dogs, but it's taken rubbish to the recycling center.

  • 2014 model for $169k was the least expensive I could locate 32k miles. I think I would rather have three c8 base models for that price. However if cars ever get back to "normal pricing" you might find one for $100k. I have also heard maintenance is very expensive on any Ferrari like $1000.00 oil change! One thing for sure you would probably be the only one in town driving one! 🤣

  • "Yes honey, we'll get a family car"

  • Really love the styling. I would feel like having an authentic sport car with a car I could use everywhere. Really love it. If I would be millionaire, won't have any problem to pay more than 3 hundred thousands on this. And around 1 hundred something. Is like a joke. It's under rated. A lot.

  • I always wanted to tell you, that "I'm so glad that you starting making these honest reviews."

  • When You revieved a Mercedes 'shooting-brake' that was not a shooting-brake but a regular station wagon, You were astonished that it looks like a regular station wagon, which it is. When You are reviewing a true shooting-brake, You call it a hatchback for some reason. FF is the best example of a shooting-brake body style there is.

    • I just Googled shooting brake and still don't understand it's meaning. Lol

    • Schooled!

    • I was scrolling the comments before writing one myself. When he said hatchback I was like wtf it's a shooting-brake!

  • I love this shooting-brake and I wish there’s more two door cars on US market these days. Better look, bigger doors mean easy getting in and out and if at 99% time you drive alone, why anyone need 4 doors.

  • I think it's a pretty car, the design has aged really well and this color looks lovely.

    • @Kelly Oubre Jr my point is.......that the Ferrari FF produced between the years 2011-2016, is still closer to your 2021 than to the 70's or 80's!

    • @Ika Ayu his video has nothing to do with anything, just a bot fishing for views on peoples comments.

    • @Pex_the_Unalive Drunk yea but it makes other wagons look like a wooden clog from the 1800’s

    • It looks like an attractive luxury sports shoe...like a Fubu or something.

  • I've always thought it's gorgeous. I don't compare it to the 2-seaters. It is its own thing, and I love it.

  • When I saw the Ferrari FF I could hardly believe my eyes. I fell in love right away, something very small was missing from it that I can’t mention to this day, what then, and then Lusso came out. Ferrari FF: 10 / 9.8 Ferrari GTC4 Lusso: 10/10 Lusso has everything I was looking for in a real sports car. - practical - not conspicuous, like a stealth, but beautiful - fast - simple and transparent inside. I don't want a spaceship .... - AND THE MAIN THING: don't just be 2 people. If I go on vacation, I should be cool not only for my girlfriend .... but for her parents as well. XD Seriously. XD If I go on vacation, but for the evening party you need things from the store, which one is better: a) you go with a standard pickup b) or you go with 4seats Ferrari... ups sorry: 4 seats + big cargo Ferrari. ;) So you understand. ;)

  • FF is the best ferrari Ive driven, all wheel 670hp, pulls like a train, love the handle bar in front of passenger with Tach , 550 is my favorite but the FF is a must have

  • At the exception of the FF, the lineage front V12 , 2+2 is the most beautiful of Ferrari and the 456 is being the most beautiful of them. The last rear engine Ferrari beautiful is the 355 and the last one to look ok to good.

  • "This car was really expensive. Now it's merely expensive." Great quote.

    • Long time ago I worked for a very rich man on a 1 week contract. We were at his house in the morning getting ready to start and his son pulled up in this! And it's been 10 years and I have never spotted another one!

    • @Patrick yea I agree the FF looks weird. Did it even sell well?

    • It's kind of an eyesore!

  • The FF is actually a very similar car to the old BMW 1 series 3 door, the FF is just a lower, faster version with the same proportions, layout, and practicality. I actually got an old 1 series as my first car back in 2014 becuase at the time the FF was current and I loved the long bonnet (hood) shooting brake shape, and the 1 series gave me that same vibe.

  • Absolutely love this car for the price and the practicality

  • Why is THIS the first car I’ve seen Doug review that I legitimately want to own. Gotta give points for practicality I guess.

  • The owners of this car are heroes on my book. They cram those amazing vehicles into that garage and use them like regular people. Rock on!

  • That exhaust note makes $100,000 feels even more bargain ❤️

    • @Patrick it's a clown shoe

    • @Paul Thomson Lmaooo, it’s called shooting brake body style, and I kinda agree with ya!😅

    • The fact the Ferrari gtc4lusso costs 3 times its price makes it even more of a bargain!

    • Your grammar is a bargain ❤️

    • @llary Yep it looks awesome to me. My buddy gives me shit for liking its styling.

  • Practicality is excellent for an exotic car and it gets a 5 out of 10. Excellent!

  • Awesome session. This collaboration is huge. Appreciate the great content MTR

  • These are going to be future classics with huge values. If you can afford one, now is the time to buy. I wish I had the coin right now. This over a 911 for sure. I love hatches being an old VW/Audi guy. This is the ultimate family car.

  • glad to see that you are still having fun doug! he loved the acceleration. highest rating ever

  • I remember Jeremy Clarkson liked this car but said “it’s going to depreciate like a chest of drawers falling off a cliff”😂

    • @Charlie Kahn the GTC4 Lusso looks like the FF you mean, FF came first.

    • I think the reasoning is people who are looking to buy a used ferrari are likely looking for a secondary track/weekend car. Most people who are looking for a Ferrari to daily drive will probably want and are able to afford the warranty and features of the lusso or whatever new model there is.

    • best comment I've read today!

    • Chris Harris loved and bought one too..

    • @CS-tv Account This isn't a Testarossa.

  • “It could look like a drawbridge and I’d still be interested” you’re 1000% right Doug 😂

  • I love these cars I was hoping they would tank in price enough for me to buy one but now I doubt that'll happen

  • An AWD Ferrari would look nice next to my Subarus. I've wanted a GTC4Lusso ever since Doug's video almost 4 years ago (wow, time flies).

  • Just a note: I'm 5'6" which leaves plenty of room for the rear seats. I don't sit that far back..I like it closer and lean the back of my seat back a bit. and I like to lower the steering wheel. Anyhow... by putting the front seats closer to the front.. leaves ample room for a 6'4" strapping guy in the back. Right? Especially in the GTC4 LUSSO..

  • That $350,000 Ferrari really has the same infotainment system as my fathers Chrysler Town & Country.

    • Considering the pos infotainment system they put in the Roma for example. That's a good thing.

    • @notsaab lol... Nothing says "great bargain" like paying six figures for a car that uses an infotainment system that should be immediately replaced! 🤣

    • But with a sound like that, it doesn’t matter...

    • @notsaab That's a good point. I think that's just before all vehicles settings and features were starting to be tied to vehicle infotainment, so yeah, probably would work!

    • video game

  • What Doug didn’t mention was the regular maintenance cost of this v12 is $7k that’s if everything is ok, if not you can expect to shell up to $30,000 on maintenance if they find a problem, this is like a Swiss time piece it’s very intricate, a finely tuned precision engine ….you will pay to play with this car, great car great price if you never need to have it worked on……

  • I actually own one, bought it new and its now at close to 90k miles. You probably will see it for-sale when the Ferrari SUV comes out. But a few things that I didnt see Doug mention: 1) Its TECHNICALLY AWD. Let me tell you, the rwd bias is extremely present especially when you are at highway speeds+. 2) That seemingly random image in the back is actually the emergency release. 3) The turn signals on the steering wheel are game changing at higher speeds. Im one who is a fan of speeding (I have hit 130+ on highways in this) , but I also believe in safety- this is rlly perfect for that. Its a neat feature that takes time getting used to but Im rlly surprised more manufacturers dont offer it yet. 4) The screen sucks (not Ferraris fault). I made the mistake of getting that but now I deal with passengers asking me to slow down, especially if the grand parents are with us. I am a big super car guy and when I had kids I did not want to sacrifice my love for fast cars. Tbh this car is so under rated and its a joy to drive, i got mine tuned a few weeks ago and tbh nothing can keep up with me. I could go on and on abt my love for cars and how Ferrari saved my ass from getting an actual suv (in 2014 the sport suv options kinda sucked, these days they have rlly impressive stuff). But yea its a really good car and im happy to see Doug showing it some love. if ur looking to spend low 100s on a car that can truly be a daily, this is definitely worth looking at.

  • Not gonna lie, this is my favorite modern Ferrari. I’ve always loved the way it looks

  • I LOVE the wheel mounted indicators, I wish other cars did this. If you actually know how to drive and keep your damn hands at 9 and 3, you always know where the indicators are and dont need to move your hands. Sometimes I have to do some right contoring to simultaneously steer around a roundabout, indicate, and change gear, in my car. Maybe americans dont have such situations as I seem to be the only one that likes the idea of wheel mounted indicators.

  • I'll never understand people who hate on this car...it's a shooting brake of sorts, so yes, it doesn't look the same as a 458. But, it does have the glorious V12, and some practicality and space (not to mention lower prices)! This car is one of the overall best Ferraris you can get right now.

    • @Ram ses the GTC4 is basically the updated version of the FF. More tech I think, the back seats are a little bit bigger. Still a 2-door though. Also, the GTC4 is offered with a V8 or a V12, meanwhile the FF only has the V12

    • Just curious, what's the main difference between the FF and GTC 4Lusso? Which one is considered "better"?

  • Got I remember when this came out and my dad trying so hard to convince my mom to let him get one. Spoiler - she said no lol. Cost being the number 1 negating factor. If he were still alive today he’d hop on this so fast haha. 200k off the original msrp is insane

  • I think it's a really nice looking design. I remember people not liking them but I've always thought it looked great.

  • From certain angles, the new (2019- ) Mazda 3 HB shares a similar look. It's also a hatchback, with a rear-wheel drive "look" and has AWD. The turbo model makes 250 hp, not 650 hp, unfortunately .

  • A hatchback with all wheel drive - just what I was looking for to throw my backpacks in and navigate snowy roads for winter backpacking - or throw my golf clubs in and head for the course - or throw my kayak in ( I was the senior kayak rolling instructor at my local community center ) - thank you for showing me my new choice of practical automobiles. By the way, don't get down on not having rear doors; small children should never have their own doors. My mother still recalls how I never waited for the car to roll to a stop before I was out and gone into whatever local woods or ball field I could scout out on the approach. It is a true wonder that I was not run over before I was 10 years old.

  • "....if I was going to go out and spend some real money" His Ford GT: "Am I a joke to you?"

    • @Matthias Bond I think it is around 270k in US, And somewhere around high 300k in Canada

    • shit car though

    • The 2005 gen GTs have all appreciated in value considerably. Damn shame too, because I think it's one of the best looking cars out there.

  • To my taste this car looks absolutely beautiful.

    • @🅱️esh9x I like the way the old skylines look... The new GTR... Meh

    • @Jason O Skylines are the best though

    • It indeed is

    • @Jason O fax

    • @Bro GTR?... LOL, no... those are the most basic-bitch cars around.

  • For my 20th Anniversary last month I rented a Ferrari GTC4 Lusso with my wife and our two kids (12 and 16). We drove it from Miami to Key West and back. It’s very similar to the FF but better looking grill. It was “only” a V8 twin turbo but the sound was amazing and the performance was jaw dropping. It felt very much like the MP4-12C we had rented in Las Vegas a few years ago. Both have around 600 HP. Both very light. But this Ferrari was just so practical and the turning speed and precision is incredible. Wish I could buy one! Definitely recommend!

  • I always loved the front-engine V12 format Ferrari did.

  • That's the most advanced and well thought out Ferrari I have ever seen, and I did not even know it existed yet. A real bargain if you got the money ...

  • Doug: Would you believe I saw an FF on a snowy December night in Columbus, Ohio 7 years ago when I took my wife to the theater? I couldn't believe this $330,000 car was out and about and covered in road salt at that time of year! Not to mention the very limited number of FF's that made it to the States that year. That guy was either terribly loaded to the point he didn't care about the salt and dangers of a crash in the conditions; or the car was on loan to him.

  • That's a clear and easy buy for 100k$ if you can find it, drove it myself. 659HP with V12, doesnt get much better than that. A ferrari you can actually drive in winter and on snowy roads too without killing your whole family. Cheapest used one in my country is 159k€ though which is almost double.

  • I believe that "unusual" diagram indicates that where the tailgate release point is which you can operate from inside (in case it's needed because of low battery of whatever reason)

  • Over engineered to death, but the steering wheel on its own is amazing.

  • I have always LOVED the FF. I do not understand why its so under appreciated

    • @Jason O exactly

    • @CD 🤣😂😅

    • Because it's ugly as 💩... and why would anyone with a brain or good taste buy a used FF when you could just buy a brand new Panamera Turbo (that actually has the correct number of doors for a "family" car)

    • @Westcoasthiker in sport mode it's only rear wheel drive...I have one...drives incredible....watch the video by jayemm on cars...much better review...Doug not very good

    • @Ika Ayu his video has nothing to do with anything, just a bot fishing for views on peoples comments.

  • I love this car for real. I had a Alfa Romeo Brera, always love those hatchback cars but mostly the seats behind are useless...

  • My perfect car would be the Model 3 with the rear end of this thing. Either that or just an electric Outback.

  • Wow! it's the most family friendly car I have ever seen from a brand that doesn't really make family friendly cars!

  • I love this channel, but Doug DeMuro has strange ideas about what's affordable and "a bargain." And I say that as a debt-free Tesla owner.

  • Always love your channel, but would really love it if you could include startup and exhaust notes before taking on the road.

  • Finally, a car whose utility is limited by it's performance and whose performance is limited by it's utility. Can't wait to spent $100,000 on this.

  • I love Doug's videos especially when he drives on my commute scenery. San Diego is 😍.

  • I love this car, I love the looks of it, and the sounds!

  • 22:51 "This is a sports car that happens to be a hatchback. Golf R is a hatchback that is converted into a sports car." -Doug DeMuro

    • @chaz meh, I agree the Golf ain't much to look at. Don't know if I'd go so far as to say "ugly". Very conservative, though. But dang, it is so much fun to drive. I bought a Golf R MT a few moths ago. Love the darn thing.

    • @Miguel - Me.

    • @Ika Ayu this video has nothing to do with anything, just a bot fishing for views

    • @sean Versacci also I’m a guy who’d take an ff over a Bugatti anytime but that’s just something someone who isn’t passionate about a car wouldn’t understand. Your passion is assuming the power and speed and you’re talking to the wrong guy

  • Those two cars are a good combo. Happy to have 1/2 of that garage already ;)

  • Doug's description is often an aporia: "Getting in and out of the FF backseat is quite a battle, but it's not that difficult."

  • Love the shooting brake concept. Such a beautiful silhouette

  • Really nice design looks refreshingly different for a Ferrari which nowadays look identical from one to another this one bucks the trend

  • Those have aged incredibly well. Such a timeless shape, and a bold move

    • @iamspyvspy whaat the gtc4 lusso is beautiful

    • Doesn’t look 2012 at all

    • @Peter B it's a v12 ferrari hatchback

    • I never understood why it was hated. I think Ferrari has a similar issue to Land Rover with the defender. Too many oldheads stuck in the past. For what this car is I think it looks fine. Nothing more nothing less. These same people pretend Ferrari have never made an ugly car. Ferrari have been trying out weird styling for decades it’s not surprising. This is one of the better examples.

    • @iamspyvspy i thought they were the same car. Scaglietti all the way for me

  • this car is sooooo sweet! all around gloriousness. i would be getting groceries all the time, just to irk folks with that lovely exhaust howl. he didn't mention Cruise Control....I would like the adaptive type, but a basic system would be nice.

  • I like the styling. So does Charles Leclerc, the f1 driver. He has one as a daily driver. It looks "similar" to my wife's 2019 mazda3 hatchback.

  • 21:25 Excellent job cutting that E92 driver off - hope you did that without using a turn signal. They need to learn what it's like to be a victim on the road.

  • Man, there is NOTHING else that sounds like a Ferrari V-12. That is a completely unique, and totally incredible sound!

  • Doug: "One moment, please." * glorious V12 noises * Doug: "Wooo!"

  • I still remember playing around for hours on the Porsche Car Configurator when this came out..always spec’d it in black even though the special silver was the “exclusive” option..if I only had the money back then (or now for that matter!). It would not surprise me if it exceeds the value of the Ferrari..

    • Sorry, I’ve been binge watching too many videos! This comment was for Doug’s newest video of the F40 vs. Carrera GT…

  • I have seen a bunch of your videos, and always enjoy them. Wondering.... what is the highest overall Doug Score you have given? And which car earned it? :)

  • Some people may be thinking, "Oh yeah! Ferrari I can seat my kids in I can almost afford!" Meanwhile the FF owners: Oh no, my Ferrari is now a bargain.

  • respectable garage - the owners have my respect

  • Sometimes what makes the car cool and amazing is not about the high end features or the body.its what under the hood!

  • I love that it's 2 door. It's hard to find any 2 door wagons. I think 2 door wagon are cool. Got get myself one of them FF

  • Excellent review. First time I saw one, I did not like the styling, but given the utility…

  • Two transmissions! I'm sure the Ferrari service department loved that idea...

  • there is something about the ferrari hatchbacks that i really love

    • @Ika Ayu his video has nothing to do with anything, just a bot fishing for views on peoples comments.

    • I lust for the GT4 Lusso. Most practical Ferrari ever

    • The sound and engine makes the looks irrelevant...

    • Ugliest car ever.Get a 812 hatch

  • Surprised to see a Ferrari at this price. I worked for Chevy and some of the Tahoes would have a sticker price of $80,000

  • Doug-"Yo brain. Name something hideous to compare this car to." Dougs brain-"Drawbridge" Doug would be awesome at Family Feud.

  • I know that this video is old and pretty early on in Doug’s CS-tv career… But, with him knowing as much about cars as he does the fact that he never mentioned that this and the GTC4 Lusso are called “Shooting Brakes” really baffled me. You’d have thought he would’ve mentioned it.

  • I love the Shooting Break design. I have a lowered Audi A3 Sportback that has a similar look as a four door.

  • someday, Doug's plug for cars and bids will just be him yelling and frothing and gesturing

  • I hope Doug and this family become great friends.

  • I cannot but smile about this one's supposed oddness, and your enthusiasm. That said, as you understandably criticised the center console screen with buttons, does it only seem so or is the lid of the back seats slider storage, as well as the panel of the in my view manageable climate controls, made of plastic and if so, is it of a sturdy and weighty variety? These elements you usually would point out in other vehicles.

  • The styling is fine. It's a perfect vehicle 👌.

  • I think this looks beautiful. Very well designed silhouette.

  • Was a passenger with a professional driver doing hot laps in an FF a decade ago and will never forget it. Incredible car.

    • @Ika Ayu this video has nothing to do with anything, just a bot fishing for views

  • I love it I just bought the same car it's my only super car since I hate the usual Ferrari you get pulled over too much but the FF is okay & it's different I love being different

  • Main thing i dont like about the paddle shifters (besides them not being a manual shifter) is the fact that the paddles dont turn with the wheel. You can only shift when the wheel is straight.
