Ferrari GTC4 Lusso
Ferrari’s short-lived FF has officially come to an end. The work that went into the ‘Ferrari Four’ hasn’t gone to waste though with Ferrari introducing a new look, more powerful version of the grand tourer. Say hello to the Ferrari GTC4 Lusso!
We liked the look of the FF, so we’re happy it’s had a facelift and not just been shoved on the scrapheap. Maranello’s four-seater has been given a name change and a power boost from its 6.3-litre V12 engine, while keeping the ‘shooting brake’ design.
The Lusso dons a similar body kit to the FF but there’s some subtle redesigns to the front bumper and the air intakes. Joes will be treated to a roof-mounted spoiler at the rear, as well as a mounted diffuser which is set against the quad exhaust tips. She looks aggressive!
Under the bonnet, performance is still top-notch with the same 6.3-litre V12 engine, only this time she’s been given more power increasing from 651bhp to 681bhp. Torque also sees a rise from 683Nm to 697Nm. This all means the Lusso’s 0-62mph has three-tenths shaved off, now taking 3.4 seconds. Top speed is an impressive 208mph.
Other additions to the GTC4 Lusso includes unique rear-wheel steering (the rear wheels turn against the direction of the front wheels for sharper cornering) and a Slip Side Control system which is attached to the electronic differential for some superb handling.
The interior has obviously had a makeover too with a new optional display on the centre console showing engine data. There’s also a new 10.25-inch his-res touchscreen display just for kicks!
The Ferrari GTC4 Lusso will be officially unveiled at the 86th Annual Geneva Motor Show next month in March. There’s no word on price yet but keep an eye on the Ferrari Website for details as they get announced.
