It is official! Ferrari has announced that the Ferrari FF will indeed receive a facelift this year, in time for the much anticipated Geneva Motor Show of 2016, along with a brand new name.
So, the Ferrari FF is really no more, and the newly appointed grand tourer will now be known as the Ferrari GTC4 Lusso – an eloquent new name for an eloquently redesigned car. Along with this new name, the unusual four-seat sports car has received a new look and a hell of a lot more power.
Not Just Visual Effects
The GTC4 Lusso forms an impressive, all-encompassing compilation of Ferrari’s current technological achievements, including the pairing of Ferrari’s four-wheel drive with four-wheel steering; only before seen on the Ferrari F12, the Ferrari GTC4 Lusso is now far more responsive and agile than the FF before it.
Ferrari’s high-performance luxury shooting brake has also been upgraded with a side-slip control system, whereby the car’s differential and adaptive dampers are effortlessly, electronically controlled to enhance performance on the road even more so. It is looking good so far…
Visually, the Ferrari GTC4 Lusso is not a far cry from its predecessor, donning reshaped headlights, a wider front grille and new tail lights; these slight aesthetical amendments, though, bring with them rather large technical advancements. The larger grille, as well as its integrated air intakes, allows the engine to breathe freely; the aerodynamic capabilities of the Ferrari GTC4 Lusso are aided by the rear diffuser and roof-mounted spoiler, thus making it more streamlined than the Ferrari FF.
Ferrari has also fitted the new GTC4 Lusso with its latest infotainment system, featuring a dominating 10.25-inch screen, next to a shrunken steering wheel.
Under The Bonnet
Thankfully, the power of the 6.3-litre V12 engine remains lurking beneath the bonnet of the Ferrari GTC4 Lusso, but has received an even further power boost, resulting in an exciting notch up to the performance – we will now enjoy an incredible 681 BHP as opposed to the FF’s 651 BHP, and as if that was not enough, a mind-blowing 3.4 second count from 0-62 MPH.
All in all, we are great fans of this tasteful update and introduction of the new Ferrari GTC4 Lusso, and we are looking forward to bringing you sightings of the real thing, along with exact pricing and economy details, at the fast-approaching Geneva Motor Show 2016.
