"Base" Ferrari GTC4 drops V12 and 4WD for turbo V8 and RWD

22.09.2016

Unveiled earlier this year as a replacement for the controversial four-wheel drive FF, Ferrari has introduced an "entry-level" version of its shooting brake styled GTC4 Lusso, known as the Lusso T.

Touted by Ferrari as a car aimed at people looking for a sporty drive with added practicality, the Lusso T drops the standard GTC4's normally aspirated 6.3-litre V12 and controversial four-wheel drive setup, for a 3.9-litre twin-turbocharged V8 and rear-wheel drive.

Essentially the same engine used in the California T and 488, the unit produces 449 kW and 760 N.m of torque, with Ferrari claiming a top speed of 320 km/h and 0-100 km/h sprint of 3.5 secs.

Shaving 80 kg off the regular GTC4's weight thanks to binning the 4WD system, the Lusso T, which still has four-wheel-steering, is claimed to average 11.6 L/100 km with emissions coming it at 265 g/km.
