Photo of the Week #28 – 2018 Ferrari GTC4LUSSO

The GTC4Lusso is a further refinement of the shooting-brake coupe, reinterpreting the concept with an extremely streamlined, tapered shape that gives it an almost fastback-like silhouette.

Like its predecessor, the GTC4Lusso is a 3-door shooting brake with an all-wheel-drive drivetrain and is powered by a front-mid mounted V12 engine.

The GTC4Lusso’s 6,262 ccs (382.1 cu in) Ferrari F140 65° V12 engine is rated at 681 hp at 8,000 rpm and 514 lb-ft of torque at 5,750rpm. The increase in output of the engine is due to the compression ratio raised to 13.5:1. Ferrari claims a top speed of 335 km/h (208 mph), unchanged from the FF, and a 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) acceleration time of 3.4 seconds.

The car uses an improved version (called the 4RM Evo) of Ferrari’s patented four-wheel drive system introduced on the FF, integrated with four-wheel steering into the system. Collectively, the system is called 4RM-S.

The rear features Ferrari’s signature Quad Circular Rear Lights (last seen on the F430 and later seen on the 812 Superfast) and the interior contains a Dual Cockpit Concept Design, separating the Driver Cockpit and the Passenger Cockpit by a central divider. The front of the car has a single grille that provides all the necessary cooling.
