It simply has it all.
Throughout its history, Ferrari hasn’t exactly built vehicles that you can daily drive. Well, you can drive them every day, however the lack the practicality of other vehicles. That changes with the new Ferrari GTC4Lusso – the everyday Ferrari with anything you could ever want.
The Ferrari GTC4Lusso is an evolution of the four-passenger, four-wheel drive Grand Touring FF, which brought in a new, younger clientele and saw a 30-percent increase in average mileage. With its predecessor being such a hit, it only made sense to the Italian automaker to continue giving drivers what they want. The name also recalls historic models such as the 330 GTC and 330 GT, and 350 GT Berlinetta Lusso, all bringing class, style, and performance.
Part of what makes the Ferrari GTC4Lusso so versatile is its patented 4RM Evo four-wheel drive system, which has been integrated with rear-wheel steering for the first time, ever, called the 4RM-S (four-wheel drive and steering). The system utilizes the Slip Slid control (4.0) system with an electronic differential (E-DifF) and SCM-E dampers. Advanced software allows for grip and control even in slippery situations from wet asphalt or snow. The SCM-E damper control also provide superb ride comfort yet can sharpen up for a high-performance driving situation as well.
Powering all four wheels in the Ferrari GTC4Lusso is a 6.3-liter V-12 producing 680 horsepower at a high 8,000 RPM and 514 lb-ft. of torque at 5,750 RPM, with 80-percent of that being available from just 1,750 RPM. The super car can also fit in perfectly with the city with a subdued exhaust note, or be right at home on the track with a roaring V-12 note. The incredible power allows the super car to reach 62 mph from rest in 3.4 seconds while the top speed is back at 208 mph.
The entire Ferrari GTC4Lusso was visualized by Ferrari Design and pushes the shooting brake coupe formula into a clean, streamlined shape. The curve of the roof was lowered without negatively affecting rear passenger or luggage space. The classic twin Ferrari taillights match the pair of dual exhaust tailpipes beneath. Powerful crease lines run from the front to the rear to create an athletic and dynamic shape.
Engineers also refined the aerodynamics of the Ferrari GTC4Lusso to create a drag coefficient significantly lower than the FF. A new grille and air intakes up front improve thermal efficiency while a triple-fence diffuser, roof spoiler, and air vents reminiscent of those from the 330 GTC improve downforce and reduce drag.
Inside, the Ferrari GTC4Lusso features a new Dual Cockpit architecture that gives both driver and passenger their own personal pace, with the latter benefiting from an optional display with range of functions. Extreme attention-to-detail was given to every part of the interior. Large wraparound seats at the front and rear provide ample side support and everyday usability. A new, more compact steering wheel features ergonomic controls and better usability, while a new 10.25-inch HD screen with capacitive touch technology forms the basis for the new Infotainment system.
The new Ferrari GTC4Lusso will make its global debut at the 2016 Geneva International Motor Show with additional details and pricing following thereafter.
