Ferrari reveals new turbocharged GTC4Lusso T ahead of Paris debut

Ferrari has unveiled its new GTC4Lusso T; the first four-seater car the Maranello-based company has made that is powered by a turbocharged V8.

The car is set to make its official public debut at the 2016 Paris Motor Show in October, and Ferrari says the new car ushers in a new GT concept intended to offer owners a vehicle that is “sporty and versatile, as well as perfect for driving on a daily basis”.

Under the bonnet, the GTC4Lusso T sports a 3.9-litre turbocharged V8, which produces a hefty 593bhp and 760Nm of torque, with power being sent to the rear wheels.

Ferrari claim the new car’s top speed will be greater than 199mph, and the sprint from 0-62mph is dealt with in 3.5 seconds.

Ferrari stated: “The V8 turbo’s characteristics suit day-to-day driving in urban contexts: a rich powerful soundtrack in acceleration that becomes more muted at lower speeds, rapid pick-up from low revs courtesy of versatile, modular torque delivery and, last but not least, excellent range.”

Changes to the GTC4Lusso T’s dynamic control systems have improved the cars responsiveness. Something to specifically note is the 4WS (rear-wheel-steering) system, which is integrated with Side Slip Control (SSC3) to allow for even faster response to steering inputs when entering and exiting corners.

Aesthetically, the GTC4Lusso T is very similar to its V12-powered stablemate. Inside, the GTC4Lusso T features Ferrari’s Dual Cockpit architecture, which the manufacturer says intended to improve the shared driving experience for both driver and passenger.

Buyers will also have the luxury of the latest version of Ferrari’s infotainment system, which includes a 10.25-inch HD touchscreen.

Prices for the GTC4Lusso T are yet to be released, although they will likely be significantly less than the V12 version’s £230,430 starting figure.
