The new GTC4Lusso T joins the Ferrari family by positioning itself just below the 6.3-litre naturally aspirated V12. It adopts an evolution of the well-known 3.9-liter turbocharged V8 engine (California T, 488 GTB) that delivers a maximum of 610 hp at 7,500 RPM, guaranteeing continuous acceleration thanks to the fact that its maximum torque of 760 Nm is available between 3,000 and 5,250 RPM.
The latest evolution of the winner as international engine of the year 2016.
Like every engine coming out of Maranello, the GTC4Lusso T's turbocharged V8 will be distinguished by the characteristics of every Ferrari power unit: immediate response (Ferrari promises an imperceptible delay in throttle response), high performance, continuous acceleration in all gears (thanks to the turbo), compact dimensions and a lowered position for improved aerodynamics when driving.
Combining this powertrain with rear-wheel drive (it loses all-wheel drive) also ensures weight savings. The subsequent adoption of 4WS (rear-wheel steer) allows for extreme agility and responsive handling. The directional rear wheel system is also integrated with the latest evolution in electronic suspension controls and the latest generation of the Slip Control System (SSC3 - Side Slip Control).
All in all, the Italian GT is 80 kilograms lighter than its V12 version and only 0.1 seconds slower in the sprint to 60 mph than its big brother. It stops the stopwatch in 3.5 seconds, with 80 hp less and 2.4 liters less displacement, exceeding 320 km/h of top speed; not bad at all. It is expected that thanks to the use of the turbo its regular use will be more comfortable and consumption slightly lower. With a total weight of 1,740 kg, it has an average fuel consumption of 11.6 l/100 km.
Aesthetically, both exterior and interior, there are no changes with respect to its V12 brother, beyond new wheels.
