2016 Ferrari GTC4Lusso
An all new Ferrari GTC4Lusso, the replacement for the FF, will be showcased at the Geneva Motor Show next month.
The GTC4Lusso will be a 4 door family car with plenty of power under the hood and a luxurious interior. This car will be officially replacing the Ferrari FF, their current four-door family car. The FF is now five years old and the design was ‘meh’.
Under the hood, is a 6.2 liter V12, naturally aspirated engine, producing a whopping 680 hp and 514 lb-ft of torque. That’s some insane numbers for a family car, don’t you think? The power is sent to all four wheels using an AWD system. With all that power, you can do a 0 to 62 mph run in 3.4 seconds and reach a top speed of 207 mph.
The AWD system on the new car also includes 4 wheels steering, which also steers the rear wheels when it’s required. For example, when the car is fast, the rear wheels are steering in the direction of the front wheels for improved handling. When the car is slow, the rear wheels turn in the opposite direction to make tighter turns easier.
The 4RM-S system will keep the car stable in all road conditions, according to Ferrari. The Press release didn’t provide any details on the transmission, but it could be the same 7 speed from the FF.
The GTC4Lusso has a better-looking body with aggressive angles, lowered roofline and four tail-lights. It’s a much better-looking car than the older FF, and a meaner one too. The interior has been given a makeover as well. There’s a new 10.25″ HD screen Infotainment system with a smaller steering wheel that has all required controls.
Overall, the Ferrari GTC4Lusso is a great looking family car that can be used for a lot more things than just taking your family out. There’s no word on the pricing, but expect it to cost somewhere around $300,000. The car will be shown at the Geneva Motor Show next month.
