#FirstClassFriday: Ferrari unveils its first-ever four-seater with a V8 turbo
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.
The main squeeze would have to be its switch to the turbocharged 3.9-litre V8 engine, which was nominated as the 2016 International Engine of the Year. Its maximum power output boasts a 610 cv at 7,500 rpm, with a maximum torque of 760 Nm between 3,000 and 5,250 rpm — allowing ultra swift acceleration and modular torque delivery to meet your need for speed.
Visually, the athleticism of its predecessor GTC4Lusso is retained, inside and out, except for the T's unique 20-inch alloys and its different exhaust layout. If driving off in one of these supercars strikes your fancy, this turbocharged motor goes on sale in early 2017 with a 12-month waiting list to boot. You better get moving. Stat.
