THE Ferrari GTC4 Lusso is now available with the 3.9-litre turbo V8 from the 488 GTB, and it debuts at this week’s Paris Motor Show. The entry-level GTC4 Lusso T will ditch the V12’s four-wheel-drive system in favour of a rear-driven set-up. It will retain its sibling’s rear-wheel steering system, while the dynamic control setups have been calibrated to improve responsiveness.
The newcomer promises to sprint from 0-62mph in 3.5 seconds (compared with 3.4 seconds in the V12) and hit more than 199mph flat-out. Styling wise, there is little to tell the two cars apart, although Ferrari says a unique Dual Cockpit architecture has been designed to enhance the driving experience for both driver and passenger. Prices haven’t been announced, but expect a significant saving on the VI 2’s £230,430 starting figure.
