It’s hard to picture Ferrari having a model that resembles a four door sedan/hatchback but that’s exactly what they’ve come up with after releasing pictures of the V-8 turbocharged GTC4 Lusso T. While the car is obviously fast (what Ferrari isn’t?) it definitely has a much more casual look than most of Ferrari’s models. It’s set to be released at this year’s Paris Motor show that takes place in October.
While a four-seater isn’t something new to Ferrari, this is their first that will feature a turbocharged V-8 (as opposed to a V-12) engine. The V-8 car will reach a maximum power of 600 hp and 7,500 rpm. The car also enables the drive to opt for a rear-wheel-drive only experience giving the car a sportier feel. The interior is equipped with an advanced infotainment system and a 10.25-inch high-definition touchscreen.
The car reaches a maximum speed of 208 mph and accelerate from 0-60 in just 3.4 seconds. With the V-12 version you’ll reach 690 hp and over 8,000 rpm. With regard to the cabin and features of the interior of the car, Ferrari spared no expense.
An improvement from the original GTC Lusso model, the car is even more insulated reducing outside noise. Ferrari achieved a 20% improvement in the car’s chassis attachment points and upgraded the climate control system for a 25% quieter ride. In addition, to improve the car’s sensitivity there are an increased number of sensors that relay environmental information to the climate control system.
Another first that the car has is a new, beautifully balanced Dual Cockpit architecture designed to enhance the shared driving experience for both the passenger and the driver. There are two cockpits separated by a central divider where a cluster of all the comfort-oriented controls are located.
In addition, much attention was given to the Passenger Cockpit. It was specifically designed so that all commands are within reach. There’s also a dedicated LCD touchscreen. Aside from the innovative architecture the cabin’s best feature is the incredible craftsmanship of its materials which have been individually selected to enrich the atmosphere on board.
Ferrari hasn’t unveiled North American pricing for the GTC4 series. For your information that the present Ferrari FF sells for around $300,000. The official world premiere of the GTC4Lusso will likely be at the Geneva International Motor Show in March.
