Ferrari’s heavily updated four-seater model gets ready for its official market launch with the first reviews landing around the web.
Autocar reviews the new Ferrari GTC4Lusso, which replaces the FF in the range, bringing more emotional looks, better tech and a bit more power from its naturally aspirated V12 engine.
The 6.3-litre V12 now makes 680hp instead of 651hp, with torque rated at 514lb ft. Ferrari claims that 80 per cent of the latter is available from 1750rpm. The 4WD system is also updated and now incorporates a four-wheel steering system as well, a slightly different version of the system that debuted in the F12 TdF.
Inside we now find the so-called Dual-Cabin architecture with the design of the dashboard split in two parts and the front passenger getting a nicely sized digital display with lots of information speed, rpm of the engine and more. A 10.25-inch touchscreen display in the middle is where Ferrari’s cutting edge infotainment now lives.
Despite shooting brake-style models not being everyone’s cup of tea, Ferrari has maintained this unusual recipe to give us what sounds like one of the most relaxing yet enjoyable and genuine sports cars in the market.
Having that engine in a practical, all-weather four seater body and making it work as it should is really where the charm of the new GTC4Lusso lies.
