Ferrari PH Finally Brings In Ferrari GTC4 Lusso

Ferrari GTC4 Lusso
Autostrada Motore, the authorized distributor of Ferrari in the Philippines, has finally brought in the Ferrari GTC4 Lusso--the sole four-seater in the popular Italian carmaker's current lineup--two years after the car was first unveiled at the 2016 Geneva International Motor Show. The GTC4 Lusso's name reportedly references its predecessors, such as the 330 GTC or its 2+2 sister model, the 330 GT --supposedly one of Enzo Ferrari’s favorites--and the 250GT Berlinetta Lusso, "which represented a sublime combination of elegance and high performance." The number 4 alludes to the car's four comfortable seats, the GTC stands for Grand Turismo Coupes, and Lusso translates to luxury in Italian. Unlike other Ferrari models in the lineup, the driving experience of the GTC4 Lusso was designed to be shared, hence the 2+2 cabin layout, so all four occupants are enthralled wherever the grand tourer goes, be it on short drives or cross-country jaunts, twisting mountain roads or urban streets. The GTC4 Lusso shares the same Ferrari F140 engine as the recently-launched 812 Superfast, though slightly detuned to produce 690 cv (681 hp) and 697 Nm of torque and sprint from 0-100 kph in 3.4 seconds with a top speed of 335 kph. In addition, according to Ferrari, the GTC4 Lusso's 2.6 kg/hp weight-to-power ratio and its 13.5:1 compression ratio set new records for its category. With that much power going to all four wheels of the GTC4 Lusso, Ferrari keeps it in check with its new Ferrari-patented 4RM-s (four-wheel drive, four wheel-steering) system that's based on the latest, fourth-generation Side Slip Control and integrates and controls the 4RM Evo four-wheel drive’s PTU (Power Transfer Unit), the rear wheel steering, E-Diff and SCM-E active damping. The GTC4 Lusso's design is penned by the Ferrari Design team led by Flavio Manzoni and is a further refinement of the shooting brake coupe, reinterpreting the concept with an extremely streamlined, tapered silhouette that underscores its perfect balance of elegance and sportiness while incorporating comfortable rear seats and a roomy boot behind them. At the front, the new Dual Cockpit architecture enhances the shared driving experience for both driver and passenger. In fact, four plush wrap-around seats and the cabin's meticulously crafted quality materials create the same ambience as a luxurious living space for all occupants. One of the selection criteria for the materials adopted was weight reduction to heighten the sense of sporty luxury typical of a thoroughbred Ferrari. The navigation and infotainment platform, featuring a 10.2-inch HD screen with capacitive touch technology, is also new. The Ferrari GTC4Lusso, truly an engineering marvel in high performance, refined luxury and versatility, setting the bar in igniting the passion for automotive excellence both in form and function.
