Ferrari’s new beast the Ferrari GTC4Lusso

Ferrari is a luxurious coveted brand that make the best sports cars in the world. Sports cars that have looks, performance and respect. This Ferrari GTC4Lusso is one of them. It’s the latest from Ferrari and it’s just breathtaking to look at with its beautiful but aggressive design. All the contours that define the shape are there for a reason, to make it less air resistant, making it quicker with better downforce.  It is designed really well and this car can be used for both its practicality and track ability.

The interior is new with a 10.25inch infotainment screen, smaller more compact steering wheel, better technology which has apple Carplay, better connectivity, more comfort and a better look. Meticulous attention to design has produced a cabin that is a flawless triumph of sporty luxury.

Another first from the GTC4Lusso is the new, beautifully balanced Dual Cockpit architecture designed to enhance the shared driving experience for both driver and passenger. It features both a Driver Cockpit and a Passenger Cockpit separated by a central divider on which are clustered all of the comfort-oriented controls common to both.

The FerrariGTC4Lusso has the same 6.2-litre V12 engine already fitted to the FF, but with power raised from 651bhp to 680bhp. Maximum power is reached at 8000rpm, while torque is rated at 514lb ft at 5750rpm, with 80% of torque available from 1750rpm. As before, drive is channelled through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Ferrari says the car’s engine note is “rich and powerful in performance driving and discreet yet harmonious in the city.”

This beast can reach 62mph from a standing start in 3.4sec – 0.3sec faster than the FF – while its top speed is unchanged at 208mph. Ferrari has yet to reveal whether the GTC4Lusso will improve on the FF’s fuel economy or CO2 emissions figures, which currently stand at a claimed 18.3mpg and 360g/km respectively.

This is a stunning piece of art and one that we all want in our lives. Ferrari makes some of the best sports cars in the world.
