Ferrari yesterday unveiled the GTC4 Lusso T, for the first time ever in a simultaneous global debut event, with the reveal in Kuala Lumpur held in tandem with its official launch at the Paris Motor Show.
The car is Ferrari’s first four-seater to sport a turbo-charged V8 engine, powered by a 3.9L V8 turbo which generates 602hp at 7,500rpm and a maximum torque of 760Nm at between 3,000rpm and 5,250rpm, taking it from 0 to 100km/h in 3.5 seconds before reaching a top speed of over 320km/h.
The GTC4Lusso T is equipped with a rear-wheel drive with four-wheel steering (4WS), and also boasts a lighter overall weight with increased weight bias towards the rear.
Ferrari claims the 4WS, integrated with Side Slip Control (SSC3), makes for more rapid response to steering wheel inputs entering and exiting corners, thanks to the rear wheels steering in the same direction as the front ones.
The feeling of longitudinal performance in this new model has been enhanced at low speeds by Variable Boost Management and underscored by throttle response with zero turbo lag.
Thanks to variable torque curves (VBM) between third and seventh gear, longitudinal acceleration is consistent through the ratios, increasing smoothly with engine speed, resulting in a feeling of vivid but superbly progressive acceleration.
Its styling reinterprets the concept of the shooting brake coupe, with a streamlined, tapered shape that gives it an almost fastback-like silhouette, and a cabin that features the unique Dual Cockpit architecture, designed to enhance the shared driving experience for both driver and passenger.
The Ferrari GTC4Lusso T comes with a price tag of RM1,088,000 excluding duty and customisation options.
