Ferrari GTC4Lusso T OverviewThe Ferrari GTC4Lusso T is the first four-seater in the Italian marque to be fitted with Ferrari’s twin turbocharged V8 engine, the same power unit featured also on the Ferrari Portofino and the Ferrari Roma. Officially introduced in 2016, just a year after the naturally aspirated V12 powered four-wheel-drive Ferrari GTC4Lusso, the Ferrari GTC4Lusso T is the rear-wheel-drive only version of the 3-door grand tourer. Like the Ferrari FF which it replaces, it is sporting a shooting-brake layout with coupé body style up front and an estate style rear end at the back.
Though equipped with four less cylinders, the Ferrari GTC4Lusso T is in fact more torquey than the V12 variant, albeit with less horsepower. And while it is missing out on Ferrari’s proprietary four-wheel-drive-system, the four-wheel-steering system from the V12 variant is retained, with the added advantage of less weight. Like its predecessor, the GTC4Lusso T is a 4-seater grand tourer with 2 proper rear seats, evident by its nearly 5-metre-long body.
The Bentley Continental GT and the Maserati GranTurismo are perhaps the closest natural rival to the Ferrari, but neither offer the same versatility and practicality as the Ferrari does, one thing that you might not hear very often. With a price tag of RM1.09 million at launch (excluding duties and options), it is priced similarly to the Ferrari’s own mid-engine 488 GTB.
