Ferrari is waving goodbye to the FF by introducing the GTC4Lusso in Geneva as a more powerful and faster replacement.
Ferrari is waving goodbye to the FF by introducing the GTC4Lusso in Geneva as a faster and more powerful replacement.
The Ferrari Four is heading towards retirement as the magicians at Maranello have prepared a successor that tries and succeeds to improve the recipe of the all-wheel-drive prancing horse. The most notable change is a bump in output of the naturally-aspirated 6.5-litre V12 from 651 horsepower and 504 lb-ft of torque to 680 hp and 515 lb-ft of torque.
Corroborated with other hardware updates, these improvements have cut the 0 - 100 km/h (0 - 62 mph) sprint time by 0.3 seconds to only 3.4 seconds while the top speed continues to stand at 335 km/h (208 mph). These are stellar performance figures taking into account the car has a dry weight of 1,790 kilograms (3,946 pounds).
The body has also gone through some evolutionary design tweaks which have enhanced the supercar’s aerodynamic efficiency and reduced drag. Also on board is a rear-wheel steering system with Ferrari’s own Slip Side Control paired to electronic differential and dampers to ensure proper torque distribution regardless of road surface.
Ferrari also made some changes inside where there’s now a 10.25-inch full HD capacitive touch screen for the infotainment system. It has support for Apple CarPlay, and benefits from a more simplified interface while the sat-nav system can display 3D maps.
Ferrari isn’t saying a word yet about the price tag just yet, but expect the GTC4Lusso to be more expensive than the FF it replaces.
