Just like the LaFerrari Aperta, Ferrari had revealed pictures and specifications of the GTC4 Lusso T before its scheduled unveiling at the 2016 Paris Motor Show. And all 499 units of the Ferrari GTC4 Lusso have already been sold out. It is powered by a 3.9-litre V8 turbocharged engine which makes 601PS of power and 760Nm of torque. This engine family also does duty in the Ferrari 488 GTB and the Ferrari California T.
What makes the GTC4 Lusso T unique is that it is the first 4-seater Ferrari that comes equipped with a V8 engine. Ferrari says that its engine gets Variable Boost Management software that adjusts torque delivery as per the gear selected. As the driver engages higher gears, the amount of torque delivered by the engine also increases. The exotic carmaker says that this has allowed the utilisation of longer gear ratios in the higher ratios. This has improved fuel economy, and Ferrari says the range of the GTC4 Lusso T is 30 per cent more than itsÂ V12-engined model.
The Ferrari GTC4 Lusso T gets the carmakerâ€™s 4WS (rear-wheel steering) which has been integrated with Side Slip Control (SSC3). In an official release, Ferrari has stated that the 4WS delivers â€˜sharper steering wheel inputs while entering and exiting cornersâ€™. The response time between front and rear axles has been reduced by 6.5 per cent which makes it easier to control especially while driving hard. The SSC3 system can alter the carâ€™s behaviour to suit different driving conditions.
