Ferrari GTC4 Lusso idea for the happy family

For the happy family

So it rejuvenates a brand: the average age of customers of the shooting brake was only 45 years FF, for the now-featured successor GTC4 Lusso Ferrari is similar. Over all series over, the average age of the customer is otherwise ten years later, at FF's predecessor, 612 Scaglietti took even many senior citizens in the age of over 70 years of space on the valance.

The generous space and the good usable trunk should be responsible for the success of the youth solvent - and also the highly individual design of sport wagons is well received. The GTC4 Lusso was used up, as has the vehicle concept Ferrari once again be tested and found in customer surveys that no changes are required.

For the Italians have significantly modernized the design: front and rear are horizontal, just the tail now classic looks with the double rear lights left and right. The roofline was still \\"schneller\\"-an element that has taken over the in-house design Department of an alternative proposal, tabled the Pininfarina. "

Under the huge hood of GTC4 Lusso is the same 6.3 litre V12 engine, which produces now proud 507 kW/690 HP thanks to fine work on the combustion chambers. The maximum power is applied at a dizzy height, namely at 8000 rpm, and who aims, can turn on the machine to 8250 revolutions per minute (RPM), before the seven-speed double clutch transmission inside whips the next gear.

How it for a Ferrari top of the range should be, are the performance beyond any doubt: the 100 km/h mark is passed through in just 3.4 seconds, the tip is downright incredible 335 km/h. However, the V12 has been considerably quieter than in the past: who holds back with the Gasfuß, is barely audible, and the obligatory outcry when starting the machine has become much quieter. Why that is so? There has been complaints, conceded Ferrari: the FF had it takes to enjoy the entire neighborhood in the morning cold.

Who puts it on and game goes to the gas, experienced but acoustic experiences that otherwise are at home on the racetrack: the V12 engine is full of the flair of formula 1 - mind you the previous formula 1, when the world was still in order and the fan base with small-volume savings Motors was upset.

The force transmitted by the way on all four wheels so that the sport wagon is characterised by unusually good winter suitability. Important for sports riders: the force is induced only when necessary forward. If sufficient traction, 100 percent of the rear land, and that ensures a pronounced curves-greedy ride.

The operating concept of the GTC4 Lusso is unusual: the turn signals are activated by push of a button on the steering wheel, the instrumentation is partially free configurable. The effort is felt to have racing atmosphere, and also very well succeed the cars from Maranello. The telematics and infotainment system must no longer hide behind the competition. This was not always the case.

The lovingly processed seat system is unique, and the panorama roof has failed so big, that the rear seats quite suitable for long-haul prove unexpectedly as a particularly pleasant place to stay.

A Ferrari so for the whole family, would there not the price: Ferrari gets proud 261 883 euro for this unique Gran Turismo.
