With only a few days before the start of the new AWD Ferrari FF V12 tests by the world's motoring press, two of these brand new supercars were taken by helicopter to the mountainous Sudtirol region in Italy.
The four-wheel drive, four-seat supercars were taken to the top of Plan De Corones in the Dolomite Mountains at 7700ft, where a special ice and snow track had been prepared for the cars at the start of the vast ski area. This would allow the cars to be tested under severe conditions.
The area can only be reached by ski-lifts, so a CH-47 Chinook transport helicopter from Viterbo's 1st Regiment Antares was used to transport them, along with the help of three Agusta 205 helicopters from the 4th Regiment Altair of the Italian air force in Bolzano.
The cars were loaded into the transport helicopter and flown around the Dolomites, before being carefully unloaded.
