Ferrari debuts new GTC4 Lusso T at Paris Motor Show

The new 'entry level' Ferrari GTC4 Lusso T makes its debut at the Paris Motor Show, the brand's first ever four-seat, rear drive V8.

The new Ferrari GTC4 Lusso T makes its debut at the Paris Motor Show today.

The entry level model is the first four-seater Ferrari in history to sport a turbo-charged V8 engine, which Ferrari says is aimed at owners looking for a sporty and versatile car, that can also be driven on a daily basis.

The 3.9-litre V8 turbo engine has been borrowed from the 488 GTB and 488 Spider, and it won Engine of the Year in 2016. Ferrari is claiming 0-62mph in 3.5seconds, and a top speed of 199mph, and if drivers go for the V12, that knocks off 0.1 seconds from the 0-62mph, with a top speed of 208mph.

The GTC4 Lusso T will be rear rather than four-wheel drive, with rear-wheel steering integrated with side slip control. Ferrari has added a variable boost management system to increase performance at low speeds, and consistent acceleration through gears 3 to 7.

On the outside, there really isn’t much to differentiate the V8 and V12 models. On the interior, there’s a 10.25-inch HD touchscreen with Apple CarPlay technology, and Ferrari has fitted the car with Dual Cockpit architecture, to offer a shared experience for both the driver and passenger. However, having a passenger know what’s going on behind the wheel at all times might not be to everyone’s taste.

Ferrari has not released pricing details yet, but it’s likely to be a good chunk less than the V12, which starts at £240,430. First deliveries in the UK are expected in 2017.
