Ferrari has introduced its brand new sporty four-seater four-wheel drive Grand Tourer concept and the Ferrari FF successor… the Ferrari GTC4Lusso.
The name comes from the predecessors such as 330GTC and the 250GT Berlinetta Lusso and the 4 is an obvious reference to the 4 seats which the car has.
Ferrari promises not just a car with the new GTC4Lusso but a whole new world.
Ferrari promises not just a car with the new GTC4Lusso but a whole new world. A car designed for people wanting to experience the exhilaration of Ferrari driving anywhere, anytime, anyhow: short spins and long journies, snowy mountain road and city streets, alone or in the company of three lucky passengers.
Lusso means luxury in Italian and the Ferrari GTC4Lusso focuses on in-car comfort, sporty elegance, and impeccable detailing but without forgetting the power. For this reason, the new GTC comes with a new 6.3-liter naturally aspirated V12 engine delivering 690cv (680bhp) at 8000rpm while the maximum torque is 697NM (514 lb-ft) at 5750rpm with 80% already available at just 1750rpm.
4Lusso uses the Ferrari-patented 4RM Evo integrated with version 4.0 of the Slip Side Control another Ferrari trademark. Both systems are linked to the rear-wheel steering providing a better handling even on snow-covered, wet or low-grip roads. The result is consistent stability and a feeling of increased control and security that translate into superior performance.
