Ferrari GTC4 Lusso - 690 Prancing Horsepower For All Seasons
|   Saturday, February 13, 2016
The Ferrari FF turns into GTC4 Lusso with 690 HP for the sole 4x4 Ferrari dedicated to family matters.
The FF name had a long life in the Ferrari nomenclature. The Italians have brought a slight facelift to the two letters which introduced the only Ferrari with four-wheel drive and four seats.

The marketing team of Ferrari had a great pleasure in radically changing the models' name. After the 458 Italia changed its name into the 488 GTB, with recently received a facelift, the restyling of the model simply called FF brings a new name: GTC4 Lusso.


Obviously, every element from the official name of this model makes sense, each element being part of known models from the history of the Italian brand. So in the case of the new model we speak of a Gran Tourer Car (GTC) all-wheel drive while the term Lusso hides the exclusive character of the car. However, we cannot fail to notice the ease with which the Italians gave up the simple names by which their recent models could be recognized until now.

Following the aesthetic and technical changes, the model is called Ferrari GTC4 Lusso and will be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March. Admirable is the fact that besides aesthetic touches, the Italian manufacturer has operated technical improvements that increase the versatility and adaptability of this model whose purpose is to be a Ferrari for all seasons. According to officials from Maranello, the FF model attracted young and new clients for the Ferrari brand.
Also, the owners of the FF drove 30 percent more kilometers on average than it is normal for a Ferrari. The justification is given not only by the cabin with four seats or decent trunk for a supercar, but also by the fact that the FF version has four-wheel drive.

This advantage was possible in this case for the Ferrari GTC4 Lusso which benefits both the Evo 4RM four-wheel drive system and the fact that the rear wheels are steerable. The result is the combined system called 4RM-S. Also, it has the Slip Side Control system too, which incorporates electronic differential E-Diff, a new generation of the shock absorber control SCM-E, which is designed to improve comfort and performance on tougher road surfaces.

The V12 engine with a displacement of 6 liters on the F, is taken over on the Ferrari GTC4 Lusso in a version that develops 30 hp more. As a result, the engine unleashes 690 horsepower at 8,000 rpm and torque of 697 Nm at 5,750 rpm, of which 80 percent is delivered at 1,750 rpm. The power to weight ratio of 2.6 kg / 1 HP make it possible to go from 0 to 100 km / h (0 to 96 mph) in 3.4 seconds (0.3 seconds faster compared with FF model). Top speed is 335 km / h.

Inside we see the dashboard has been shaped more clearly to create the sensation of individual space for both the driver and front-seat passenger. This design, called Dual cockpit incorporates an optional screen for the right front passenger. It is larger than that was offered for the FF and displays a wealth of information about performance (speed, engine speed, gear containing the gearbox, G forces, etc.).
