The upcoming Paris Motor Show provides the venue for the unveiling of the GTC4Lusso T, the first four-seater in the rich history of Ferrari to sport a turbo-charged V8 engine.

Hailing a whole new Ferrari GT concept, the new model is aimed at owners seeking a car that is sporty and versatile, as well as perfect for driving on a daily basis.

The new GT marries elegance, comfort and sportiness with the thrilling driving dynamics delivered by a combination of rear-wheel-only drive, four-wheel steering, lighter overall weight and increased weight bias towards the rear.

The car’s 3.9-litre V8 turbo is the latest evolution to emerge from the engine family that was nominated the 2016 International Engine of the Year. Its maximum power output is 610 cv at 7,500 rpm while maximum torque of 760 Nm is available at between 3,000 and 5,250 rpm.

The V8 turbo’s characteristics suit day-to-day driving in urban contexts: a rich powerful soundtrack in acceleration that becomes more muted at lower speeds, rapid pick-up from low revs courtesy of versatile, modular torque delivery and, last but not least, excellent range.

The GTC4Lusso T’s styling remains the same innovative take on the shooting brake coupé, reinterpreting the concept with an extremely streamlined, tapered shape that gives it an almost fastback-like silhouette.

The cabin is an effortless melding of distinctive Ferrari styling and the luxurious elegance expected of a four-seater GT. Unique Dual Cockpit architecture, designed to enhance the shared driving experience for both driver and passenger is accompanied by the latest iteration of the infotainment system complete with an impressive 10.25” HD capacitive touchscreen.

Pricing for the GTC4Lusso T is yet to be confirmed by Ferrari but is expected to come in at just over £200,000.
