Ferrari GTC4Lusso Replaces FF, Heads to Geneva with 680 HP

Facelifted FF gets a longer name, more power.

Debuting at the 2016 Geneva auto show in March is the Ferrari GTC4Lusso, formerly known as the FF. The car's new name is a reference to the Ferrari 330 GTC, 330 GT, and 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso while the number "4" hints at the car's four seats.

Under the hood, the GTC4Lusso retains the FF's 6.3-liter V-12 engine but has been massaged to 680 hp and 514 lb-ft of torque. That's 29 hp and 10 lb-ft more than the outgoing FF. Around 80 percent of the V-12's torque is available at 1,750 rpm for improved responsiveness at low revs. The engine's compression ratio of 13.5:1 sets a new record for the category, Ferrari says.

The GTC4Lusso's all-wheel-drive system gains integrated rear-wheel steering and the latest version of Slip Slide Control, using an electronic differential and SCM-E magnetorheological dampers to improve the car's handling. In addition to promising better handling, the SCM-E dampers should also help keep the car's ride smooth on rough surfaces.

Exterior updates such as a roof-mounted rear spoiler, integrated air intakes in the front grille, side air vents, and a triple fence diffuser help lower the GTC4Lusso's drag coefficient. Essentially a facelifted FF, the GTC4Lusso maintains the shooting brake body style and now has a lower roof that gives it a fastback-like silhouette. Inside, the dash has been reworked and now features a new infotainment system with a 10.25-inch capacitive touchscreen, a smaller steering wheel with integrated controls, and a smaller airbag. On the center console, there's also a little pocket where you can place the car's keys.
