The Ferrari GTC4 Lusso has made its debut in Far East, in Japan, for the first time. At its far east debut, the GTC4 Lusso was presented in a venue decorated to resemble an Italian palazzo with a breathtaking aerial acrobatic performance that wowed the some 200 guests. Alongside the main model, two classic Ferraris were on display: 330GTC (1966) and 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso (1963).
Dieter Knechtel, CEO of Ferrari Far and Middle East Hub, commented: “We are very happy to hold the GTC4 Lusso Far East premiere here in Tokyo. Japan is an important market, and this year also marks our 50th anniversary here. The GTC4Lusso is the only GT car which has this exceptional level of performance, and with its remarkable versatility I am confident it will be extremely popular here, as it is proving to be in other similarly sophisticated markets.”
Ferrari’s four-seater super sport integrates rear-wheel steering with four-wheel drive, which signifies another major advancement for the versatile sporty Grand Tourer concept. With a revolutionary new handling system that combines 4-wheel-drive and 4-wheel-steering, the GTC4 Lusso is the best in class across all performance standards.
Thanks to a 6,262cc V12 that punches out a maximum of 690 cv at a 8,000 rpm and peak torque of 697 Nm at 5,750 rpm, with 80% available at just 1,750 rpm, the GTC4 Lusso delivers an astonishing top speed of 335 km/h and sprints from 0 to 100 km in 3.4 seconds. Both its 13.5:1 compression ratio and its 2.6 kg/cv weight-to-power-ratio set new records for the category
Seamless integration of its complex vehicle dynamics control systems means the powerful GTC4 Lusso performs brilliantly in all driving situations, but really comes into its own on challenging low-grip surfaces, delivering a consistent sense of stability and comfort.
Based on the latest, fourth generation of the Side Slip Control, the new Ferrari-patented 4RM-S system integrates and controls the 4RM Evo four-wheel drive’s PTU (Power Transfer Unit), the rear-wheel steering, E-Diff and SCM-E active damping. The model’s exclusive 4RM-S system (four-wheel-drive with four-wheel-steering) delivers in sublime performance in any driving conditions, from snowy mountains to city streets.
The Ferrari GTC4 Lusso is a further refinement of the shooting brake coupé, reinterpreting the concept with an extremely streamlined, tapered shape that underscores its perfect balance of elegance and sportiness whilst still incorporating large comfortable rear seats and a roomy boot behind them.
