Its the buzz of the Geneva Motor Show. The new Ferrari GTC4 Lusso has been introduced at 2016 Geneva Motor Show, along with a slew of technical details that show the full extent of upgrades over its predecessor car model, the Ferrari FF lines.
The new Ferrari GTC4 Lusso features a refined, updated design that takes several cues from the recent FF models. The car’s style is not dramatically different to the recent FF models, but it’s easy to spot the new headlights and revised rear lights. The new integrated air intakes on the front grill allow the engine to breathe more freely while the new rear diffuser and roof-mounted rear spoiler help improve the car’s drag coefficient.
The car’s interior also received a major facelift. Inside, you get a smaller steering wheel and a new optional display on the center console, which provides engine readout for the car’s front-seat passenger. In addition, the car is also equipped with the latest infotainment system featuring a 10.25-inch HD touch screen with capacitive technology.
Under the hood, you’ll find a naturally aspirated 12-cylinder, 6.3-liter V12 engine, which delivers 680 hp of pure muscles and 514 lb-ft of torque. Ferrari said the GTC4 Lusso is capable of blitzing the run to 62 mph in just 3.4 seconds. However, its top speed remains unchanged, at 208 mph.
To aid agility, Ferrari has added four-wheel steering system to the GTC4 Lusso’s four-wheel drive transmission, which also features an electronic differential and Ferrari’s new Slip Side Control system. The result is the creation of the 4RM-S (four-wheel drive and steering), a first for the Italian carmaker.
All these technological changes are seamlessly integrated by the company’s proprietary software and enable the driver to handle the car’s extraordinary torque even on poor road conditions (such as snow-covered or low grip roads).
