Feature Flick: Ferrari FF Takes on Hawaii

Some people get to have all the fun. Not only would we love to get to explore Hawaii's big island again, we'd love to do it with a Ferrari FF, rather than our friend's old, beat-up BMW 5 Series.

However, since we can't all get to travel Hawaii in a 651-hp, 504-lb-ft Ferrari, we'll have to live vicariously through this Motor Trend Epic Drive video hosted by Arthur St. Antoine and Jessi Lang. If the sights of the Pacific island weren't enough, the 25-minute long video treats us to the aural delights of the FF's hand-built 6.3-liter V-12. To put the car's 4RM all-wheel drive system to the test, the duo decides to climb Mauna Kea, which tops out around 14,000 feet above sea level. Despite the fact that the road was little more than a dirt track, the Ferrari has no problem making the climb.

After coming back down the mountain, St. Antoine and Lang tour the island more – both by car and by helicopter – and finish off their epic journey with a recreation of the Magnum P.I. intro, including a cameo from Automobile's videographer, Sandon Voelker.
