The Ferrari GTC4LUSSO is an all-season, all-weather masterpiece that beats every car to the finish line.
When deciding on a practical four-seater car, words like “pedigree” and “heritage” are usually not the first things that come to mind. Instead, you might be thinking to yourself, “I need something spacious, reliable, and capable.” Until recently, there wasn’t one car that blended all of those characteristics into one breathtaking vehicle, but that’s since changed now that Ferrari has introduced the GTC4Lusso to its lineup of performance-first supercars. And breathtaking it is. Its makers, in fact, were so confident that they invited us on a snowy drive in Canada for some drifting and time trials at Circuit Mecaglisse.
They’ve somehow outdone themselves with this vehicle, subsequently creating and delivering, beyond any fathomable expectation, a four-person, four-wheeldrive hatchback supercar and grand tourer all in one with virtually limitless possibilities. The GTC4Lusso hails a major evolution of the sporting Grand Tourer concept by integrating four-wheel steering with rearwheel drive for the first time. This is a vehicle designed for drivers wanting to experience the pleasure of driving a Ferrari anywhere, any time, be it on a short trip or long journey, on snowy mountain roads or city streets, alone or in the company of passengers. Its 12 cylinder engine delivers smooth, consistent power, punching out a massive 690 hp at 8,000 rpm. The engine sound brilliantly reflects the car’s multifaceted personality: it’s rich and powerful in performance and discreet and harmonious in the city.
Though not technically a racecar, the vehicle is actually track-ready and beats every other car to the finish line in terms of style, performance, and luxury. The interior is comfortable and surprisingly spacious. It’s the Ferrari that can haul groceries, pick up the kids from soccer practice, seat an entire family on a road trip, and find footing on slippery ice roads. It’s a four-seat, four-wheel-drive masterpiece meant for an enthusiast who appreciates power and practicality and wants surging force at every turn with unmatched flair. The drive is direct and precise, both thrilling and refined, and exceptionally versatile in every kind of grip condition.
Ferrari’s fearless reputation for achieving the impossible transitions so seamlessly into its GTC4Lusso that it seems buying the vehicle is merely the start of the adventure, offering a one-of-a-kind experience for the whole family to enjoy and making something already special into truly so much more.
