ModelsEdit

GTC4Lusso (2016–)Edit

Like the FF it replaces, the GTC4Lusso is a 3-door shooting-brake with an all-wheel drive drivetrain, and is powered by a front-mid mounted V12 engine.

The GTC4Lusso's 6,262 cc (382.1 cu in) Ferrari F140 65° V12 engine rated at 690 PS (507 kW; 681 hp) at 8,000 rpm and 697 N⋅m (514 lb⋅ft) of torque at 5,750rpm,[2] also thanks to a compression ratio raised to 13.5:1.[2] Ferrari claims a top speed of 335 km/h (208 mph), unchanged from the FF,[3] and a 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) acceleration time of 3.4 seconds.[2]

The car uses an improved version (called the 4RM Evo) of Ferrari's patented four-wheel drive system introduced on the FF, integrated with four-wheel steering into 4RM-S.[3]

The GTC4Lusso was unveiled at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.[3][4][5]

GTC4Lusso T (2017–)Edit

Unveiled at the 2016 Paris Motor Show,[6] the GTC4Lusso T is a rear wheel drive only version of the GTC4Lusso equipped with a small displacement V8 engine but retaining the 4WS four-wheel steering system.[7]

The GTC4Lusso T comes with a 3,855 cc (235.2 cu in) Ferrari F154 twin turbocharged V8 engine rated at 610 PS (449 kW; 602 hp) at 7,500 rpm and 760 N⋅m (561 ft⋅lb) of torque at 3,000–5,250 rpm. According to the manufacturer the car can attain a top speed of over 320 km/h (199 mph) and accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (0 to 62 mph) in 3.5 seconds.[7]

DesignEdit

The body style of GTC4Lusso is similar to the Ferrari FF. The rear features Ferrari's signature Quad Circular Rear Lights (last seen on the F430) and its interior contains a Dual Cockpit Concept Design, separating the Driver Cockpit and the Passenger Cockpit by a central divider. The front of the vehicle has a single grille that provides all the necessary cooling.

The GTC4Lusso is a further refinement of the shooting-brake coupe, reinterpreting the concept with an extremely streamlined, tapered shape that gives it an almost fastback-like silhouette.
