The GTC4Lusso has a striking resemblance to the FF, but it’s not a facelifted version. As you very well know, folks at Ferrari don’t do facelifts. The similitude is present but the GTC4Lusso sports an all new sheetmetal.
Rigorous research and development has increased the 6.3-liter V12’s peak power output to 690 hp, making the Ferrari GTC4Lusso the most powerful car in its class. Moreover, its 13.5:1 compression ratio and 2.6 kg/cv weight-to-power-ratio set new records for the category as well.
The lusty V12 revs to a red line at a segment-leading 8,250 rpm and generates a maximum torque of 514 lb-ft at 5,750 rpm with a massive 80 percent already on tap at just 1,750 rpm for remarkable responsiveness even at low revs. Hence, the GTC4Lusso is very versatile: it performs equally well in sports car mode and in more GT-type settings.
As a matter of fact, the performance figures are comparable to those of a thoroughbred sports car, with a top speed of 208 mph and acceleration from zero to 62 mph in just 3.4 seconds. The superb performance figures of the new V12 are attributed to a series of cutting-edge technical solutions, including the latest evolution of Ferrari’s anti-knock control software, newly-designed piston heads, multispark injection and overall weight reduction.
The interior features loads of leather and a 10.3-inch infotainment screen with capacitive-touch controls. With its intuitive four-wheel steering and all-wheel drive system, the Ferrari GTC4Lusso is also a hatchback unlike any other. It’s also the closest that the Prancing Pony will ever get to crafting an SUV.
