Yay! It's not turbocharged.
Ferrari has just revealed its GTC4Lusso, the successor to the FF, which will make its live debut next month at the Geneva Motor Show. From first impressions, it looks an awful lot like its predecessor, and that’s because, well, it’s really more of a facelifted FF. That’s not at all a bad thing, and here’s why: Ferrari’s new four-seat, four-wheel drive grand tourer is powered by that familiar naturally aspirated 6.2-liter V12, now with a total of 680 hp (up from 651 hp) and 514 lb-ft of torque (up from 504 lb-ft) at 5750 rpm, with 80 percent of the torque available at 1750 rpm.
Like before, all of that power is sent to all four wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Performance specs are impressive, as always. Try a 0-62 mph time of only 3.4 seconds. Top speed remains unchanged at 208 mph. The GTC4Lusso has also gained integrated four-wheel steering. The latest evolution of the Slip Side Control system now incorporates the electronic differential (E-Diff) and the SCM-E dampers. Essentially, this all translates to drivers being able to take the GTC4Lusso on snow-covered or low-grip roads with relative ease while the car’s immense torque is kept under control. And, of course, Ferrari promises superior ride comfort at the same time.
The interior features Ferrari’s new Delphi-developed infotainment platform featuring a 10.25-inch HD screen with capacitive touch technology. It still remains compatible with Apple CarPlay. There’s also a new, and smaller, steering wheel that was made possible thanks to a more compact airbag. Ferrari also says the controls are now "more ergonomic," specifically the redesigned controls and buttons for the hands-free phone system. The exterior design clearly takes an evolutionary, rather than revolutionary, approach. With most of the FF’s overall design cues remaining firmly intact, there are subtle differences.
Specially note the more aerodynamic front bumper featuring built-in air intakes, new air vents on the rear wing, a roof-mounted spoiler, as well as a new diffuser. Ferrari claims the results of these styling mods result in the GTC4Lusso having a "substantially lower drag coefficient than on the FF." Official pricing and an on sale date haven’t yet been announced. We’ll have more details and live images in just a few weeks from Geneva.
