Ferrari took the wraps off its new GTC4 Lusso four-seat grand tourer, a V12-powered shooting brake, at the Geneva motor show.
The style is an evolution its predecessor FF shooting brake coupé, with the biggest changes coming in the front and rear fascias and in overall surfacing; out back, traditionalists will be happy to see Ferrari’s signature four-circle taillights have returned.
Inside, the GTC4Lusso features Ferrari’s first-ever application of its "Dual Cockpit" design motif; this splits the cabin into two separate areas for driver and front passenger. Specifically, Dual Cockpit means buyers will have the option of adding a separate touchscreen just for the front passenger’s use.
The Italian supercar builder says that, like the FF, the car is aimed at a wealthy younger demographic who like to drive their cars often, which explains the decision to drop a healthy 680-horsepower V12 under the hood.
Ferrari’s tried-and-tested 4RM Evo four-wheel-drive system underpins the chassis, though, for the first time, rear-wheel steering has been added for even better driving dynamics.
