Ferrari’s very unfortunate model – the FF – was replaced recently. I assume Ferrari realised that FF mean #FridayFollow and that may not match the Ferrari’s brand identity. In order to make the new FF unique, they preferred a new brand name – the GTC4Lusso. Basically, it is a better and a more refined version of the FF. The navigation and the infotainment system is way way better than that of the FF. The engine is better and more efficient (I really wonder who cares). Still, the V12 is a naturally aspired engine.
The GTC4Lusso still offers enough for four people. Why do you need to carry four people inside a Ferrari? Two seats are more than enough – one for you and one for the additional boot space. An all-wheel drive system is still available to tackle the snowy roads of Monte Carlo but it doesn’t snow over there. And it still looks like a hatch-back. A Ferrari owner once told me that the Ferrari FF looks like his son’s BMW 1-Series. He has a point.
The GTC4Lusso T? For the first time, Ferrari offers an affordable version, the V8 Turbo engine, rear-wheel driven Ferrari GTC4Lusso.
Actually, it should have been called the GTC2Lusso to emphasise the lack of an all-wheel drive system and the naturally aspired V12 engine. This is a very smart move on the part of Ferrari to reach their annual 10,000 car production target. And I am sure it will work.
However, I would never buy a GTC4Lusso in the two-wheel drive option. The GTC4Lusso was created as an all-wheel drive car. A rear-wheel drive GTC4Lusso T will always remind me of two things, that the car’s owner has no idea about the Ferrari brand or couldn’t afford to buy a proper A GTC4Lusso.
