Ferrari, the Italian marque doesn’t need any introduction. The company is known for making fast cars that become bedroom wall posters. The company has been offering practical vehicles with the launch of the FF and now, its replacement is here, the GTC4 Lusso. The company launched it in India yesterday and here’s all there is to know about it.
The GTC4Lusso is the replacement to the Ferrari FF, which was the company’s previous 2+2 seater. The vehicle comes with 2 engine options, a V8 turbo priced at Rs 4.2 crores and a V12 priced at Rs 5.20 crores, ex-showroom India. The T, which is the turbo version is powered by a 3.9 liter twin turbo V8 making 601 Bhp and 760 Nm. This is the same engine that is on offer on the 488 range. The engine is mated to a 7-speed dual clutch transmission. The Lusso T also gets the rear wheel steering but misses out on the 4wd system which is on offer on the V12 model. 0-100 for the T is dispatched in 3.5 seconds and it has a top speed of 320 kmph, just 15 kmph shy of what the V12 manages. Even without the 4wd system, the T manages to be just 0.1 seconds slower than the V12, which is quite impressive.
The V12 on the other hand is a 6.3 liter one making 680 Bhp and 697 Nm. This is naturally aspirated though. This one is also mated to the 7 speed dual clutch transmission. It does 0-100 in 3,4 seconds and has a top speed of 335 kmph. The 4Lusso gets an updated version of the 4wd system that was on offer on the FF and also gets rear-wheel steering.
The vehicle was unveiled at the Geneva Motorshow in 2016. It now gets an updated interior with a new dashboard and a new 10.25″ touchscreen system. It also has the passenger display in front of the passenger seat which gives all the vital information to the passenger. There is a new steering wheel which still houses the indicators, lights and wipers.
