The artist formerly known as FF becomes the Ferrari GTC4 Lusso in its mid-cycle refresh. And, clunky new moniker aside, it’s rather special.
Not least because the operatic, naturally aspirated 6.3-litre V12 engine has been juiced to the tune of 680bhp (29bhp more than the FF), which results in a 0-62mph time in the low threes and a top speed of 208mph. In a large, heavy car with four proper seats and almost as much boot space as a Focus estate.
Added to the hideously complex four-wheel-drive system is four-wheel-steering, which improves maneuverability at low speed and agility at high speed. And there’s Side Slip Angle Control, Ferrari’s drift-o-matic system. Perfect for scaring the bejesus out of any rear seat passengers.
The front and rear styling has been tweaked a bit, too, and it is much better looking than before.
Now that Ferrari has launched the online configurator, you can play around with those looks. We’ve taken a stab and you can see the results here. We’ve gone for Rosso Fiorano paint with black 20in rims over gold calipers; Iroko leather upholstery with Giallo detailing (stiching, seatbelts, emblems, rev counter) and Cuoio carpets. To that we’ve added the sports exhaust (rude not to), privacy glass, panoramic roof, black exterior detailing, and the passenger info display. The front axle lifter and front-view camera seem wise, too.
You can find the configurator here. Have a go yourself and show us the results.
