Is the Ferrari FF that Fugly?

Equipped with a 6.3L naturally aspirated V12 engine, the Ferrari FF takes the honor of being the largest capacity Ferrari engine ever produced. However, its abrupt rear end has garnered more attention than the amount of power the V12 generates. As a result, the FF was being labeled as “Fugly Ferrari” by The Straits Times on 7 Jan 2012. It was a tongue-in-cheek remark I suppose. By the way, the word “Fugly” is an informal way of saying “very ugly”.

Personally, I do not consider its rear to be unsightly. A short end does not mean that a car does not look sporty. Take a look at the iconic hot hatch, the Golf GTI, for example. And how about the VW Scirocco (below) ? The rear end drops off sharply as well but it appears to be well-received by Singaporeans and it is hard not to spot one on the Singapore road.

Perhaps, the FF is not your usual sleek-looking Ferrari but it is the most practical one ever built due to the large storage space in the boot. Members of the Singapore Island Country Club would certainly appreciate that. Is the FF that Fugly? Do share your comments below.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.

It does looks abit weird from side compared to the scirocco but it isn't ugly. Maybe its just that the front is alittle too long space is needed for the huge engine. It just need sometime to get use to it.

U compare the ff with the scirocco?!?!??

One is so fugly while the other is so well designed.

The scirocco is a much more balanced shape because the front is not protuding so much like FF. I guess ferrari got no choice due to the size and layout of the engine.

So yes! Thus ferrari is fugly.

My rule is, I won't really judge a car's looks until I see the real thing.

But there are cars that are aesthetically pleasing just from photos alone.

Anyway, this particular ST motor journalist does talk through his ass sometimes.

Fugly = F*ing ugly. But to be fair, this journalist should watch his words carefully. Every car dealer wants to be unique and some time down the road, they will release new concepts that stir controversy, like this FF. Give it some time for the public to judge before calling it Fugly.
