Giving the Shooting Brake Another Shot

A replacement for the Ferrari FF has arrived with the new 2017 Ferrari GTC4Lusso. While the FF wasn't much loved, Ferrari has decided to give the shooting brake market another shot.

The GTC4Lusso will be using the 6.2L V12 making 681hp at 8000rpm and 514 lb-ft at 5750 rpm. Power is sent to all four wheels through the 7 speed F1 dual clutch transmission and Ferrari’s all wheel drive system. All of this helps to propel the GTC4Lusso to 60mph in a claimed 3.4 seconds and onto a top speed of 208mph. One of the big additions to the new GTC4Lusso is Ferrari’s four wheel steering system, 4RM-S. This system is an improved version of what Ferrari debuted in the F12tdf last fall.

The exterior of the GTC4Lusso is an evolution of the current FF, most noticeably gaining the signature rounded dual tail lights, an integrated rear roof spoiler, and side vents. A single large grill takes over the front end of the car, and updated headlights stretch up to the fenders

The GTC4Lusso doesn't mess around with the interior either. Up front is a 10.25” touch screen display, featuring Apple CarPlay and an optional 8.8” screen for the passenger. The passenger will be able to set a new GPS destination, change what nav info is displayed and even change the songs from their screen. Ferrari also took time to refine the interior, claiming a 25% reduction in cabin noise.

The Ferrari GTC4Lusso is expected stateside this fall, and while pricing hasn’t been announced it should sit right around the same $300,000 mark as the FF that it is replacing.
