Sharper and more luxurious, the GTC4Lusso enhances the 'everyday' Ferrari formula.
Debate all you want about its worth as a 'true' Ferrari, the GTC4Lusso is one hell of a car. Yes, it has four seats, all-wheel drive, and a clownshoe shape that results in decidedly questionable styling – none of that matters when you bury the throttle and unleash the Italian vibrato of the 680-horsepower, 6.3-liter, naturally aspirated V12. It has the soul of a proper Italian, even if it's the largest car Ferrari's ever made.
But don't just take my word for it. Follow along with Giuliano Daniele from our Italian sister site OmniAuto.it, who recently spent some time driving the snot out of the new GTC4Lusso against the backdrop of the Dolomite mountains in northeastern Italy. This is Ferrari's premiere grand tourer, but it certainly packs a punch – even at 4,233 pounds, it's able to sprint to 62 miles per hour in 3.4 seconds and will top out at an eye-watering 208 mph. Thanks, V12.
But as Daniele explains in the video, the GTC4Lusso benefits from a number of tweaks and enhancements that make it much better to drive than its predecessor – the car's "new brain," if you will. That, combined with a super luxurious, four-seat interior, makes this Ferrari one of the most functional, in addition to being quite lovely to drive.
Watch above, and take in all of the noise and glory of Ferrari's new GT as it does its thing in the mountains of Italy. And if you're hungry for more, check out our similar video of the Ferrari California T Handling Speciale from earlier this year.
