Ferrari GTC4Lusso 01

While most cars gain cosmetic tweaks, new techs and more power for a facelift, the Ferrari FF gets all that as well as a whole new name as part of its upgrading exercise. Set to debut at the Geneva Motor Show, Maranello’s four-seater, four-wheel-drive ground tourer will be known as the GTC4Lusso.

Sounding much better than “Ferrari Four”, the GTC4Lusso moniker refers to the iconic 330 GTC/ 330 GT duo and the 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso. The number 4 points to the number of passengers the car can accommodate.

The overall shape is unchanged but the GTC4Lusso is seemingly a more serious competitor over model it replaces thanks to its redesigned sheetmetal. The front fascia features a sharper face with a new grille and air intakes while the rear section boasts a more intricate bumper design with the addition of a new roof-mounted spoiler and quad tail lights.

Inside, the GTC4Lusso debuts Ferrari’s latest infotainment system with a 10.25-inch HD display in the centre console. Also, there are new wraparound seats for everyone and a smaller steering wheel with a more ergonomic control layout for the driver.

Under the hood, the 6.3-litre naturally aspirated V12 engine now churns out 680 hp at 8,000 rpm and 697 Nm of torque at 5,750 rpm, which is a significant upgrade over the FF’s output of 651 hp and 683 Nm. The top speed remains at 335 km/h but the sprint to 100 km/h is now done 0.3 seconds faster at 3.4 seconds.

The GTC4Lusso is also the latest car from the Prancing Horse marque to deploy the 4RM-S (four-wheel drive and steering) system after the F12tdf. On top of that, the grand tourer is armed with Slip Side Control 4.0, which incorporates the electronic differential and the SCM-E dampers for relentless grip on various road surfaces.
