The Ferrari FF was always a polarizing vehicle. A unique hatchback design combined with a controversial AWD system employing two different transmissions certainly made for mixed opinions. Despite this the FF was a success for Ferrari, which is why they have brought us the FF’s replacement in the form of the 2017 Ferrari GTC4 Lusso. Inspired by the 1963 Ferrari 250 GT Lusso, the new GTC4 features revised bodywork including an all-new front fascia with integrated active air shutters to improve aerodynamics and overall efficiency. The biggest change along the side of the vehicle are the large air vents behind the front wheels that extract air from the wheel wells for improved downforce while the most notable change in the rear is the new integrated spoiler and redesigned taillights.
In a time when even Ferrari is downsizing to smaller, turbocharged engines, we are happy to hear that the GTC4 Lusso has retained the 6.3L V12 with an even higher output of 681-hp and 514 lb/ft of torque. The result of clever engine management, 80% of the V12’s torque is available at just 1,750 rpm allowing the Lusso to sprint to 60 mph in an impressive 3.4 seconds- half a second faster than the previous FF. Power is distributed via two different transmissions- a seven-speed dual-clutch sending power to the rear while a small two-speed transmission mounted on the front of the engine sends power to the front wheels. Although AWD certainly gives better traction in bad weather be warned as that forward transmission essentially “turns off” when the vehicle changes into fifth gear meaning all 681-hp is suddenly being sent to only the rear wheels on a slippery surface. When this happens at least the new rear-wheel steering system might help you to some extent.
The interior of the GTC4 Lusso has been revised but is still very much Ferrari. The steering wheel has been updated to feature new hands free calling features and a new Manettino switch to change between the various driving modes. An all-new multimedia system complete with 10.25-inch touchscreen and your choice of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is available. A new slightly larger passenger display lets your passenger know just how fast you’re going when they complain about your driving. The seats are fitted with fine Nappa leather and are well bolstered while still keeping you supported and comfortable. A new keyless entry system trades in the traditional cherry red key for a more modern fob.
The new Ferrari GTC4 Lusso will most likely just as controversial as it’s FF father but with a nearly 700-hp on tap and room for four plus luggage you can be guaranteed the Lusso will be a hit. Just remember to keep it below 6th gear in bad weather. The Ferrari GTC4 Lusso competes against the Aston Martin Rapide S, Bentley Continental GT, and Porsche Panamera Turbo.
