The name for Ferrari’s updated 2+2 comes from the brand’s storied history, and the new GTC4 Lusso badge holds a fair bit of water among the Cavallino Rampante devotees. Ferrari says the GTC’s name is inspired by the Ferrari 330 GTC and the 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso, which combined high-luxe, daily-driver capability with the long-legged and fast grand-tourer attitude that made Ferrari famous.
Despite the identical proportions, the GTC4 Lusso isn’t just a dinky visual refresh of the controversial FF hatchback. In the front, a new, sharper face has been pulled from the big-brother Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. Deep side scallops are carved out of bottom half of the doors, giving the GTC4 an extremely aggressive appearance, and the rear end is far more aggressive than before, with a giant diffuser and quad exhaust tips.
Performance with the upgraded engine is staggering, with a 0-62 mph time of 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 208 mph. That’s compared to the 3.7 seconds it took the FF to sprint to 62 mph, per Ferrari’s figures.
Inside the Ferrari GTC4 Lusso, it’s business as usual, with a boatload of premium materials and surfaces that befit the astronomic price tag. The GTC4 also marks the debut of a new 10-inch infotainment touchscreen, along with a new steering wheel.
The Ferrari GTC4 Lusso makes its official debut at this year’s Geneva auto show. In the meantime, take a look at Ferrari’s newest 2+2 in the photo gallery below.
