Ferrari GTC4Lusso – Features, Driving, Design [YOUCAR]. Intense research and development has boosted the 6,262 cc V12’s maximum power output to 690 horsepower, making the GTC4Lusso the most powerful car in its segment. Both its 2.6 kg/cv weight-to-power-ratio and its 13.5:1 compression ratio set new records for the category, too. Underlining the strong links between Ferrari’s GT engine division the racing world, the V12 revs to a red line at a class-leading 8,250 rpm.
Maximum torque is 697 Nm at 5,750 rpm with 80% already available at just 1,750 rpm for superb responsiveness even at low revs. This makes the GTC4Lusso incredibly versatile: it is as equally at home in sports car mode as it is in more GT-type contexts, such as city centres or on long journeys.
In fact the performance figures are those of a true thoroughbred sports car, with a maximum speed of 335 km/h and acceleration from 0-100 km/h in just 3.4 seconds flat.
The new V12’s impressive performance figures are ensured by a series of leading-edge technical solutions, including newly-designed piston heads, the latest evolution of Ferrari’s anti-knock control software, multispark injection and overall weight reduction. As a result the GTC4Lusso also benefits from an improvement in specific emissions, producing just 0.51g CO2/km/cv compared to the FF’s 0.55g.
The adoption of 6-in-1 exhaust manifolds with equal length pipes and a new electronic by-pass valve, combined with the meticulous attention to perfecting engine harmonics at all engine speeds and in all kinds of throttle situations, have produced a unique, all-encompassing soundtrack that is engaging for occupants and driver alike. Providing a suitably sporting note during press-on driving, it recedes to a subtle yet potent purr in the city or on the motorway.
