There’s a new Ferrari in town and it’s called the GTC4Lusso. It’s the replacement to the Ferrari FF which is an everyday Ferrari packed with a honking V12 designed for grocery getting and long trips. The complicated name is a reference to older Pininfarina Ferraris such as the GT 250 Berlinetta Lusso and Enzo Ferrari’s 330 GT 2+2. The GTC4Lusso is by definition a luxurious 2+2 Grand Tourer design.
This next version of the FF is a 6.3 liter 65 degree-V12 delivering 680 horsepower at 8000 RPMs to all four wheels. That sounds pretty insane just like all Ferraris, but this time the Italian purebred is more focused on selling the GTC4Lusso’s Grand Touring abilities. I.e., putting the driver AND its passengers in the center “of a whole new world.”
This is a car designed for clients wanting to experience the exhilaration of Ferrari driving anywhere, anytime, anyhow: short spins and long journeys, snowy mountain roads and city streets, alone or in the company of three lucky passengers. Clients that demand power but refuse to compromise on in-car comfort, sporty elegance and impeccable detailing.
Ferrari claims the GTC4Lusso will be an exceptionally versatile car thanks to the “Ferrari patented 4RM Evo with version 4.0 of the Slip Side Control System.” That is simply technical and marketing jargon for four wheel steering and four wheel drive working in conjunction to give superior handling.
The 2016 Ferrari GTC4Lusso will debut in the 2016 Geneva Motor Show in March. There’s no price tag as of yet on the four wheel drive Ferrari, but expect to pay more than the FF’s sticker of $302,000.
