Ferrari GTC4Lusso unveiled! Adieu FF!

The Ferrari FF sails over the horizon as the maniacs at Maranello bring to us the GTC4Lusso. Now, the name might be a bit odd (and even seem like its built for a bloke called Lusso); but the biggest Prancing Horse remains quintessentially Ferrari.
The design is an evolution of the FF more than anything else. The shooting brake design is a quite a looker, especially when compared to the FF. The front now has hints of the 488 GTB that succeeded the gorgeous 458 Italia. Round to the side, the gills on the fender and the swooping roof line give the Ferrari an extremely extremely balanced (and pretty) silhouette. Our favorite profile however has to be the rear! The FF's bloated rear never really appealed at large. We love the return of the twin pod lamps (something that made its last appearance on the F430 in 2009). Dare we say, the rear instantly reminded us of the Ferrari 456. The lamps, sharply raked windscreen and the quad exhaust tips round up the derriere.
On the inside, you get all the bells and whistles you'd ever need and then some more. What's new, is a 10.25 inch touchscreen infotainment system. The GTC4Lusso can seat four people and is meant to be a luxury grand tourer rather than a break neck performance-oriented supercar. Check the specsheet however and that doesn't look like the case.
Ferrari has retained the FF's 6.2 litre V12 mammoth. However, the power output has been bumped up to a whopping 680bhp@8000rpm. The torque figure now stands at 514 ft lb (~ 700Nm). All this power is good to catapult the GTC4Lusso from a standstill to 100kmph in just 3.4 seconds. That's a full 0.3 seconds quicker than the outgoing FF. It also gets Ferrari's 4RM-S (four-wheel steering) that can also be found on the F12tdf.
The GTC4Lusso will debut at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show.
