The Ferrari GTC4Lusso V12 supercar, an updated version of the FF, has made its first public appearance at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show which is currently underway. The four-seat all-wheel drive supercar comes with quite a few upgrades.
The most significant of the upgrades comes in the form of the 4RM Evo four-wheel drive and steering system (steerable rear wheels for better control on all types of surfaces) with Slip Side Control System. The 6.3-litre naturally aspirated V12 petrol engine has been tuned to extract more power than before at 690 PS and 697 Nm of torque (80% of the peak torque is available from 1,750 rpm). Transmission is a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic unit with paddle shifters.
The GTC4Lusso is claimed to dispatch 0-100 kmph sprint in just 3.4 seconds en route to a hair raising top whack of 335 kmph. The supercar’s driving dynamics is enhanced by an E-Diff and SCM-E dampers without compromising on comfort.
The latest prancing horse derives its name references form the iconic 330 GTC and 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso. ‘4’ in the terminology denotes the number of seats. The car’s styling is sharper than the outgoing FF with the return of twin-circular taillight clusters being the main highlight. Ferrari says that the enhancements have resulted in a Cd that is “substantially lower than on the FF”.
The interior is a modern interpretation of what was seen in the FF. The centre console settles for a dual-vent layout compared to the older car’s triplets and the infotainment screen is now significantly larger. The seats are revised and like before, most of the cabin is swathed in plush leather.
