Officially revealed at the Paris Motor Show in September, the four-seat grand tourer GTC4Lusso gets a fresh update: The GTC4Lusso T. 110 pounds lighter than its V12 stablemate, the GTC4Lusso T delivers hairpin thrills by a combination of its change to rear-wheel-only drive, four-wheel steering, and an increased weight bias towards the rear.
