Ferrari Reveals the Updated FF, Complete With A New Name
This week, Ferrari pulled back the curtain on the updated FF. But it isn't called the FF. Instead, Ferrari has decided to christen this updated model with GTC4Lusso. Now you might be thinking someone accidentally spilled a cup of coffee while writing this story, but this is the actual name. Ferrari explains the name is a combination of the 330 GTC and the 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso, two iconic models from the past. The number four represents how many people can sit in it.
The GTC4Lusso retains the basic shape of the FF, but adds some aggressive design cues found on the F12 Berlinetta. The front gets a wider grille and reshaped headlights. Around the side are deeply scalloped doors and a distinctive character line. The back gets a new diffuser and spoiler. Inside, the GTC4Lusso boasts a new dashboard with a 10.25-inch touchscreen and smaller steering wheel.
Power still comes from a 6.3L V12 producing 681 horsepower and 514 pound-feet of torque (up from 651 and 504 respectively). The transmission is unknown, but our previous report says it will be an eight-speed of some kind. The GTC4Lusso will keep the FF's all-wheel drive system, but add four-wheel steering to it. Performance figures stand 3.4 seconds for a run to 60 MPH and a top speed of 208 MPH.
Ferrari is expected to show the GTC4Lusso at a private event at Lake Como this month. A public debut will take place next month at the Geneva Motor Show. Production is expected to begin sometime this year.
