Beneath the skin, the FF and new GTC4 Lusso have much in common, but externally the entire package has been reworked.
More defined body creases run along the GTC4 Lusso’s flanks, a simplified but wider front-intake sits in a squared-off front bumper, and the front guards feature enlarged vents.
At the rear, the GTC4 Lusso adopts quad tail-lights, a more raked C-pillar, and a lower rear roofline, with a redesigned diffuser set between the quad exhaust tips.
While Ferrari’s V8’s have moved to turbocharging, the GTC4 Lusso sticks with a naturally aspirated 6.2 V12 fettled to produce 507kW at a screaming 8000rpm and 697Nm at 5750rpm, although, for the sake of driveability, 80 percent of that torque is available from 1750rpm.
As with the FF before it, the GTC4 Lusso features Ferrari’s 4RM all-wheel-drive system, but also adds four-wheel steering from the F12 TdF with the new system wearing the 4RM-S tag. Upgrades to the system include the latest Slip Side Control, incorporating the electronic differential and SCM-E dampers.
Performance upgrades see the GTC4 Lusso able to sprint from 0-100 km/h in 3.4 seconds, knocking 0.3 seconds of the time achieved by the FF.
The interior centrepiece is a new 10.25-inch infotainment system featuring capacitive touch technology, while the new dual cockpit dashboard design places a secondary screen in front of the front passenger to relay key vehicle information. The redesigned steering wheel scores a more compact airbag housing, while the redesigned seats and dash are awash with high-grade leather trim.
The GTC4 Lusso will make its first public appearance at the Geneva Motor Show in March with the first international deliveries expected to begin later this year.
