Ferrari’s Four-Seater Has Four-Wheel Steering, New Name.
Ferrari is updating its FF four-seater, adding four-wheel steering to the four-wheel drive system, more power, and renaming it the GTC4 Lusso for its debut at the Geneva Car Show next month.
“This is a car designed for clients wanting to experience the pleasure of driving a Ferrari anywhere, anytime, be it on short spins or long journeys, snowy mountain roads or city streets, alone or in the company of three lucky passengers,” said Ferrari in a statement.
Ferrari made no reference to cost, but the previous model, described by Car & Driver as the “world’s fastest grocery getter” and the most expensive, started at $298,750 before tax. Ferrari calls this car a “shooting brake coupe”.
The GTC4 Lusso’s 12-cylinder, 6.3 liter engine delivers 680 hp at 8,000 rpm.
“The GTC4 Lusso’s high levels of performance are also due in part to new aerodynamic solutions, not least a new front grille with integrated air intakes to improve the efficiency of the radiating masses, the air vents on the wing that recall those of the 330 GTC, a roof-mounted rear spoiler and a new triple-fence diffuser,” Ferrari said.
“Generous wraparound seats guarantee all four occupants exceptional comfort and room, creating the same ambience as a luxurious living space,” Ferrari said.
They will have to hang on tight as the GTC4 Lusso blast its way to 60 mph from rest in just over three seconds, and on to 208 mph on unlimited German highways.
