Ferrari’s GTC4Lusso is the new four-seater that hails a major evolution of the sporting Grand Tourer concept by integrating rear-wheel-steering with four-wheel-drive for the first time.
This is a car designed for clients wanting to experience the pleasure of driving a Ferrari anywhere, anytime, be it on short spins or long journeys, snowy mountain roads or city streets, alone or in the company of three privileged passengers. These clients demand exceptional power but refuse to compromise on in-car comfort, sporty elegance and impeccable detailing.
The GTC4Lusso brings unprecedented versatility to Ferrari driving, like the FF before it, which won the Prancing Horse a younger client base that also makes greater use of its cars, clocking up 30 percent higher mileage than average.
The GTC4Lusso’s name references illustrious predecessors, such as the 330 GTC or its 2+2 sister model, the 330 GT (one of Enzo Ferrari’s favourites), and the 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso, which represented a sublime combination of elegance and high performance. The number 4 alludes to the car’s four comfortable seats.
The GTC4Lusso’s 6262cc 12-cylinder engine delivers smooth, consistent power, punching out a massive 690bhp at 8000rpm. Both its 2.6kg/bhp weight-to-power ratio and its 13.5:1 compression ratio set new records for the category. Maximum torque is 697Nm at 5750 rpm, with 80 percent of it already available at just 1750rpm for superb responsiveness even at low revs. This latest Ferrari is an exceptionally versatile car in every kind of grip condition, thanks to the Ferrari-patented 4RM Evo four-wheel-drive system which is integrated with rear-wheel-steering for the first time.
Meticulous attention to design and carefully executed detailing have produced a cabin that is a flawless triumph of sporty luxury. Its Dual Cockpit architecture is another first, designed to enhance the shared driving experience for both driver and passenger, with the latter having his/her own generous optional display with a plethora of functions.
That innovative architecture aside, the cabin’s most striking feature is the beautiful craftsmanship of the materials which have been painstakingly selected and combined to enrich the atmosphere on board. Generous wraparound seats guarantee all four occupants exceptional comfort and room, creating the same ambience as a luxurious living space.
The GTC4Lusso also debuts the new Infotainment platform featuring a 10.25-inch HD screen with capacitive touch technology. The new steering wheel is more compact thanks to a smaller airbag and the integrated controls are more ergonomic than ever, making for an even sportier driving experience.
