Rear-wheel steer, all-wheel drive Ferrari GTC4Lusso revealed

The new rear-wheel steer, all-wheel drive Ferrari GTC4Lusso has been revealed ahead of its official debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March.

THE NEW FERRARI GTC4 LUSSO, says Ferrari, “hails a major evolution of the sporting Grand Tourer concept by integrating rear-wheel steering with four-wheel drive for the first time”. The new GTC4Lusso replaces the Ferrari FF.

The GTC4Lusso takes its name from significant Ferrari models, including the 330 GTC and its 2+2 sister model, the 330 GT – one of Enzo Ferrari’s favourites – and the 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso, which represented a sublime combination of elegance and high performance. The number 4 alludes to the car’s four seats.

Essentially just a refreshed FF, the GTC4Lusso’s 12-cylinder engine 486kW at 8000rpm and 697Nm at 5750 pm with 80% available at just 1750rpm.

The Ferrari GTC4Lusso gets Ferrari’s 4RM Evo four-wheel drive system which is integrated with rear-wheel steering for the first time. The result is the “newly-patented 4RM-S (four-wheel drive and steering) system which, based on yet another exclusive Prancing Horse patent, the latest evolution of the Slip Side Control (4.0) system, now incorporates the electronic differential (E-Diff) and the SCM-E dampers”.

Improvements have been made to the looks of the GTC4Lussi with a new grille that gets integrated air intakes and air vents on the wing that are reminiscent of those on the 330 GTC, there’s a roof-mounted spoiler and a new triple-fence diffuser. These combine to make the GTC4Lusso slipperier than the FF it replaces.

On the inside, the GTC4Lusso debuts Ferrari’s new Infotainment platform featuring a 10.25-inch HD screen with capacitive touch technology. The new steering wheel is more compact thanks to a smaller air bag and the integrated controls are allegedly “more ergonomic than ever”.

Ferrai will reveal more details at the Geneva Motor Show in March.

Not as ugly as the putrid Panamera, but not much better, Enzo Ferrari would roll in his grave with shame to see such ghastly styling with his name.
