Ferrari Developing Part-Time 4WD System

Autocar uncovered a patent for a a part-time four-wheel-drive system, applied for by Ferrari. Don't get excited, it doesn't mean a Ferrari SUV is in the works (like the Ferrariization of the Alfa Kamal concept, pictured). The system looks to be designed for traction-control purposes, not off-roading. According to Autocar, it will likely may mean all-wheel drive versions of front-engined models like the 612 Scaglietti and upcoming 600 coupe, as well any number of Maserati models, are in the works.
