The New Ferrari GTC4Lusso has Arrived
The Ferrari GTC4Lusso has premiered at the Geneva Motor Show as Ferrari’s new four-seater model that integrates rear-wheel steering with four-wheel drive for the first time, hailing another major advance for the versatile sporty Grand Tourer concept.
As Ferrari’s latest interpretation of the four-seater, a configuration that holds a very special place in Maranello tradition, the GTC4Lusso makes exhilarating Prancing Horse sports car performance and elegance available to four rather than just two occupants. Thanks to a 6,262cc V12 that punches out a maximum of 690 cv at a 8,000 rpm and peak torque of 697 Nm at 5,750 rpm, with 80% available at just 1,750 rpm, the GTC4Lusso delivers an astonishing top speed of 335 km/h and sprints from 0 to 100km in 3.4 seconds. Both its 13.5:1 compression ratio and its 2.6 kg/cv weight-to power-ratio set new records for the category.
Seamless integration of its complex vehicle dynamics control systems means the powerful GTC4Lusso performs brilliantly in all driving situations, but really comes into its own on challenging low-grip surfaces, delivering a consistent sense of stability and comfort.
Based on the latest, fourth generation of the Side Slip Control, the new Ferrari patented 4RM-S system integrates and controls the 4RM Evo four-wheel drive’s PTU (Power Transfer Unit), the rear-wheel steering, E-Diff and SCM-E active damping. Penned by Ferrari Design, the GTC4Lusso is a further refinement of the shooting brake coupé, reinterpreting the concept with an extremely streamlined, tapered shape that underscores its perfect balance of elegance and sportiness whilst still incorporating large comfortable rear seats and a roomy boot behind them. At the front, the new Dual Cockpit architecture enhances the shared driving experience for both driver and passenger. In fact, four plush wraparound seats and the cabin’s meticulously crafted quality materials create the same ambience as a luxurious living space for all occupants. One of the selection criteria for the materials adopted was weight reduction to heighten the sense of sporty luxury typical of a thoroughbred Ferrari. The navigation and infotainment platform, featuring a 10.25” HD screen with capacitive touch technology, is new, too.
The Ferrari stand at Geneva showcases two examples of the GTC4Lusso: the first is finished in a Bianco Italia livery with a Blu Sterling interior, a Low-e panoramic roof to keep the cabin temperature constant even on the sunniest of days, and diamond-finish forged wheels, while the second has classic Grigio Ferro Met bodywork with a Cognac semi-aniline leather cabin. Both cars feature the new 8.8” touchscreen passenger display as well as Apple CarPlay and an upgraded audio system.
