Will it drift?

It might pack a 651bhp V12, but the Ferrari FF is a grippy, four-wheel drive GT. The question is, will it drift? Steve Sutcliffe finds out.

It may be 4 wheel drive, but theres still 520bhp going through the rear wheels. Because the 4 wheel drive sends at most 20% to the front wheels.

520bhp through rear wheels + front engined car = drift machine

I have not bothered to verify this with Ferrari but on the assumption that turning the wheel-mounted switch to off does not override functions selected in the menu then turning the four-wheel-drive system, stability control management? and dynamic control to maximum may have actually hindered this attempt to turn rubber into fun.
