Usually, a Ferrari presentation of this kind would take place at a race circuit, but not this time as Maranello chose the Plan De Corones ski resort in Italy to tout its new four-seater model’s all-wheel drive capabilities.
Being that the ski resort can only be reached by ski-lifts, Ferrari commissioned the help of the Italian air force to transport the two press cars at the top of Plan De Corones at 2,350 metres.

Quoting Aesma (Reply 1):
Anyway, a 4*4 car is not a Ferrari !
Ferrari cars will change radically in the future. 4WD is just the start, hybrid will be next.
And they have to - no longer can Ferraris be mechanical dinosaurs with outdated engines and dubious quality as in the older days. If they continued in the path of cars like 348 and 512 (the Testarossa, not the 512S/512M race-car), they'd be left in the dust by their rivals.
