Ferrari’s first ever four-seater with a turbocharged V8 engine will make its official debut at the upcoming Paris Auto Show.
This turbocharged version comes hot on the heels of the GTC4Lusso, which already raised the bar in terms of performance for Ferrari’s signature four-seater 12-cylinder GTs. To hear the Prancing Horse put it, the GTC4Lusso T is aimed “squarely at drivers looking for range as well as sporty driving and versatility.”
Powered by a 3.9-liter V8 turbo, good for 602hp (610 PS) and 760 Nm (560 lb-ft) of torque, the GTC4Lusso T is capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.5 seconds, before maxing out at slightly over 320 km/h (198 mph).
Compared to the more powerful non-turbocharged GTC4Lusso, this new version is slower by just 0.1 seconds to 100 km/h. In fact, the engine in the GTC4Lusso T is an evolution of the V8 turbo that won “International Engine of the Year 2016” – with peak power coming at 7,500 rpm and peak torque available between 3,000 and 5,250 rpm.
By combining this powertrain with rear-wheel drive, Ferrari managed to save weight as well. Yet, the car still features 4WS (rear-wheel steering) for a more nimble and responsive drive, a system which works together with the Side Slip Control (SSC3) to allow for more aggression when entering or exiting corners.
In terms of styling, the GTC4Lusso T offers the same take on what a shooting brake coupe should look like under Italian management. Inside, it features Ferrari’s unique Dual Cockpit architecture as well as the latest iteration of their infotainment system, complete with a 10.25″ HD touchscreen.
On the road, the GTC4Lusso T is expected to average as little as 11.6 l/100km (20.2 US mpg) and 265g of CO2/km.
