After teasing the model earlier this month, the Ferrari GTC4Lusso has debuted ahead of a planned showing at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show in March. The new four-seat grand tourer offers additional technology, refinement and power over the FF replaces, which itself helped Ferrari attract a new, much younger client base.
The GTC4Lusso, which pulls its name from previous Ferrari models like the 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso, is powered by the Ferrari’s 6.3-liter V12 engine. In this application, the engine delivers 680 horsepower and 514 lb-ft of torque, up from 651 horsepower and 504 lb-ft of torque in the FF.
The engine routes power to all-four wheels through Ferrari’s patented 4RM Evo four-wheel drive system, which has been integrated with four-wheel steering for the first time in the GTC4Lusso. This has resulted in the creation of the ‘4RM-S’ (four-wheel drive and steering) system, which also incorporates a Slip Side Control system for easy drifts, an electronic differential and SCM-E damper control.
New styling, penned by Ferrari’s in-house design studio, brings improved looks to the FF’s shooting-brake shape and also allows for a lower drag co-efficient. A more chiseled front grille with integrated air intakes has been applied, while a triple-fence rear diffuser and a rear wing with integrated strakes intended to recall the Ferrari 330 GTC are also present.
Inside, the GTC4Lusso gives us a sneak peak at what we might expect from other Ferrari models in the future. Ferrari calls the new interior its ‘Dual Cockpit’ architecture as it incorporates an optional passenger side display to help share the driving experience. There’s also the automaker’s new 10.25” HD screen with capacitive touch technology and an all-new, smaller steering wheel, made possible by the use of a smaller airbag.
The 2016 Ferrari GTC4Lusso will debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show in early March, at which point additional details may become available.
