Ferrari GTC4Lusso T to receive world debut at 2016 Paris Motor Show

Following on from the success of GTC4Lusso, Ferrari have announced the arrival of the new GTC4Lusso T – the first four-seater to be powered by a V8 engine which will receive its worldwide debut at the 2016 Paris Motor Show.

Ushering in a whole new Ferrari Grand Touring concept, the GTC4Lusso T is sporty, versatile, and ready for everyday use.

Here are the key features of Ferrari’s new GTC4Lusso T:

V8 Turbo engine

The GTC4Lusso T’s V8 turbo has the razor-sharp throttle response, blistering performance, and exhilarating acceleration you’d expect from a Ferrari.

The new GTC4Lusso T is equipped with a 3.9-litre V8 turbo engine which punches out a maximum of 610 cv at 7,500 rpm, guaranteeing powerful acceleration with maximum torque of 760 Nm – resulting in a 0-62 mph time of just 3.5 seconds.

One of most innovative features of the GTC4Lusso T’s V8 is Variable Boost Management, a control software that adjusts torque delivery to suit the gear selected. This delivers increasingly powerful pick-up as revs rise, whilst optimising fuel consumption to guarantee extended range – ideal for town driving or long trips.

Vehicle Dynamics

When Ferrari’s engineers decided to adopt a V8 turbo engine and rear-wheel drive for the GTC4Lusso T, their intention was to enhance the vehicle dynamics to provide a sportier feel that was consistent with the driving experience of the original V12 GTC4Lusso. Therefore, adding four-wheel steering to the mix results in an overall lighter vehicle which allows for additional agility and quicker responses.

The rear-wheel steering makes cornering more effortless thanks to the fact that the rear wheels steer in the same direction as the front ones. As a result, the driving experience of the GTC4Lusso T is completely exhilarating.

Design

Designed by Ferrari’s Styling Centre, the GTC4Lusso T contains the same distinctive fastback-like coupé design as the V12 version.

On the inside, the luxurious cabin perfectly blends, elegance and technology. The GTC4Lusso T features the unique Dual Cockpit architecture, designed to enhance the shared driving experience for both driver and passenger. It also incorporates the latest version of the infotainment system complete with an impressive 10.25” HD capacitive touchscreen.
