First four-seater in Prancing Horse history with V8 Turbo
Official debut at upcoming Paris Show
Dubai, UAE, September 25, 2016: The upcoming Paris Motor Show provides the venue for the unveiling of the GTC4Lusso T, the first four-seater in Prancing Horse history to sport a V8 turbo engine, hailing a whole new Ferrari GT concept aimed at owners seeking a car that is sporty and versatile but also perfect for frequent driving.
The new GT effortlessly marries elegance, superb occupant comfort and sportiness with the exhilaratingly dynamic driving delivered by a combination of rear-wheel-only drive, four-wheel steering, lighter overall weight and increased weight bias towards the rear (46:54).
The car's 3.9-litre V8 turbo is the latest evolution to emerge from the engine family named overall “2016 International Engine of the Year”. Its maximum power output is 610 cv at 7,500 rpm while maximum torque of 760 Nm is available at between 3,000 and 5,250 rpm.
The V8 turbo's signature characteristics suit day-to-day driving in urban contexts: a rich powerful soundtrack at high speeds that becomes more muted at lower speeds, nimbleness and responsiveness courtesy of versatile, modular torque delivery and, last but not least, an excellent range.
The GTC4Lusso T's dynamic control systems have been specifically calibrated also to further boost responsiveness to commands. In particular, the 4WS (rear-wheel steering), which is integrated with Side Slip Control (SSC3), makes for more rapid response to steering wheel inputs entering and exiting corners, as the rear wheels are steered in the same direction as the front ones.
The feeling of longitudinal performance in this new model has been enhanced at low speeds by Variable Boost Management and underscored by zero turbo lag in its throttle response. Thanks to variable torque curves (VBM) between 3rd and 5th gear, longitudinal acceleration is consistent from gear-to-gear, increasing smoothly with engine speed, resulting in a feeling of unique sportiness and progress.
The GTC4Lusso T's styling remains the same innovative take on the shooting brake coupé, reinterpreting the concept with an extremely streamlined, tapered
shape that gives it an almost fastback-like silhouette. The cabin is an effortless melding of distinctive Ferrari styling and the luxurious elegance of a four-seater GT. The GTC4Lusso T also features Dual Cockpit architecture, designed to enhance the shared driving experience for both driver and passenger. It also incorporates the latest iteration of the infotainment system complete with an impressive 10.25” HD capacitive touchscreen.
The tailpipes are specific to this new model which can also be fitted, on request, with dedicated 20” sports wheels.
