Can The Ferrari GTC4Lusso Really Be Used As A Daily Driver?

It’s a little late for a Ferrari GTC4Lusso review, given that it was unveiled a couple of years ago, but we’ll let this one slide, as it makes some interesting observations.

Dissected on video by CarWow, the successor of the FF is just as exciting to look at on the outside as it is to sit in.

It gets plenty of leather, sufficient storage spaces for a car in this class and an infotainment system that’s easy to use. However, the latter is not quite as intuitive as what you’d get in a BMW or Mercedes, but it still gets the job done.

More importantly, the GTC4Lusso is the only new Ferrari on sale that offers seating for four. The rear seats are not just for show, as two adults would gladly fit with just enough head, leg, and shoulder room.

Don’t be in a hurry to take your family on vacation in your GTC4Lusso though as, despite having a tailgate, its boot is not that spacious. Still, by folding the rear seats flat, it should be enough for a comfortable journey with one passenger and your luggage on board.

Cruising down the highway, or a twisty mountain road, is just as comfortable playing the role of a grand tourer. This means that it can absorb most bumps in the road and tire and wind noise are basically nonexistent, especially with the right foot down, which brings the sonorous V12 to life.

The 6.3-liter unit generates 690PS (680hp) and 697Nm (514lb-ft) of torque, which translates into a 0-100km/h (62mph) acceleration of 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 335km/h (208mph).

There are, however, some annoying features with the Ferrari GTC4Lusso, that one probably doesn’t expect from a Prancing Horse – but we’ll let you discover them by watching the clip that follows.

    That’s why they have made it in the first place, even though I’m not entirely into the idea.

    • europeon

      Uhm… Into what idea? This is their third (or fourth if you count the FF as a different model) car of this kind.

      • Bash

        True, but you see, to my personal opinion and taste and all, they are not what a Ferrari suppose to be.. and that’s why neither one of them is my favorite.

        • Vassilis

          To be fair, Ferrari always had a V12 GT in their line-up. It’s part of their heritage.

          • Bash

            True, the shooting break is what’s bothers me actually…

    • TheHake

      I actually love the Lusso. If I had the money, this would be my ride.

    • Well it’s basically it’s di Montezemolo way to compromise with Marchionne for Ferrari SUV, di Montezemolo is adamant that there won’t be a Ferrari SUV as long as he is CEO. So four wheel drive shooting break is the compromise, and yeah the sales isn’t as high as Marchionne expected.

      • Bash

        Exactly! Right on the money!

  • Bo Hanan

    Their building an SUV. They better figure out how to make their cars reliable.
    Welcome to the real world of car usability Ferrari.

    • TheHake

      Alfa never got that right and they still exist…

  • nastinupe

    It’s not a DD because it’s a two door. Unless you’re single with no kids then the car is not going to be a DD. And if you’re by yourself you might as well just get a proper Ferrari. Because we all know that if you can afford a $350,000 car then it’s not going to be your only car, you probably have like 2 or 3 other cars as well. So why would this car be the DD? Why not drive the Mercedes S Class or an Audi RS7/ S8 or a BMW 7 Series or something as your DD?
