Ferrari is waving goodbye to the FF by introducing the GTC4Lusso in Geneva as a more powerful and faster 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-liter V12 from 651 horsepower (486 kilowatts) and 504 pound-feet (683 newton meters) of torque to 680 hp (507 kW) and 515 lb-ft (697 Nm).
Corroborated with other hardware updates, these improvements have cut the 0-62 mph (0-100 kph) sprint time by 0.3 seconds to only 3.4 seconds while the top speed continues to stand at 208 mph (335 kph.) These are stellar performance figures taking into account the car has a dry weight of 3,946 pounds (1,790 kilograms)
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 touchscreen 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.
