The predecessor successor of the Ferrari FF (#FollowFriday) is the GTC4Lusso from the London Motor Show. It’s the first Ferrari to have all-wheel traction! To be honest, I was never impressed by the FF because it was an all-wheel drive Ferrari and the built quality was below that of its competitors. However, I know it drives really well. It is a Ferrari and I have to like it!
Interestingly, it seems as though Ferrari heard my silent feedback and introduced a great car, the GTC4Lusso. I haven’t had a chance to drive it, but I am sure it drives really well. My main concern is with the interior quality. Now, it is a proper S-Coupe competitor. The buttons feel perfect, and nothing seems to go wrong when you press one. The Ferrari FF didn’t have this attention to detail, and when you pressed a button the whole Ferrari ritual was destroyed.
Regarding the interior production quality, it is the best Ferrari interior I have ever seen. The leatherwork, the gaps between the panels, and the overall structure is perfect. Shockingly, the new infotainment system works really really well. It could have been faster, but when you consider the automotive industry’s phobia with regard to faster CPUs, Ferrari have done a great job.
I know Ferrari fans will not like what I am saying (maybe Ferrari won’t like it either). However, the future of the automotive industry is not to do with the horsepower race. It is the attention to detail, production quality, connectivity and autonomous driving. I can see that with its new management, Ferrari will be leading the charge for the supercars.
