Could the Ferrari GTC4Lusso T be the Perfect Daily Driver?

Ferrari is spreading forced-induction love with the brand’s first four-seater turbocharged V8 grand turismo: the GTC4Lusso T. Set to be unveiled at the upcoming Paris Motor Show, it’s aimed for owners who want something that’s sporty yet versatile and perfect to be driven on a daily basis.

The GTC4Lusso T brings elegance, comfort, and sportiness together. It heightens the sportiness by offering rear-wheel drive together with four-wheel steering, lighter overall weight, and increased weight towards the rear (46:54).

Under the hood, the GTC4Lusso T features the latest evolution of the engine family that was nominated for the International Engine of the Year in 2016. The 3.9-liter V8 has 610 horsepower at 7,500 rpm and 760 Nm of torque from as low as 3,000 rpm.

The engine is specifically tuned for day-to-day driving and as such offers more muted sounds at lower speeds. However, being a Ferrari, it gives unparalleled tractability and modular torque delivery culminating in a powerful soundtrack at full acceleration.

The chassis has also been calibrated to boost response. The 4WS (rear-wheel steering) is integrated with Side Slip Control (SSC3) for a more rapid response to steering inputs while entering and exiting corners. This is because the rear wheels actually steer in the same direction as the front.

  1. The particular power plant will be especially tuned regarding day-to-day traveling and thus presents a lot more modest appears with reduced rates. Nonetheless, like a Ferrari, that offers unrivaled tractability and also modular torque shipping and delivery culminating in the potent soundtrack with total velocity.
