Four is the new two
Do you want a style of a V12 Ferrari, but have growing responsibilities? This supercar will tick all the boxes for everyday living.
Brisbane Ferrari has again exceeded all expectations when delivering Ocean Road Magazines Director Dean McMurtrie the new GCT4Lusso supercar for the Spring Edition of Dream Drives on the Gold Coast.
It’s fast, suitably furious, and able to accommodate family or friends on an exhilarating trip anywhere you desire to go.
GTC4Lusso – what does the name mean? Let’s break it down…
‘GT’ stands for Gran Turismo
‘C’ is short for Coupe.
‘4’ relates to the number of people it accommodates
‘Lusso’ means luxury.
Ferrari is Italian for fast.
Glorious, 6.3-litre, naturally aspirated, V12 sitting majestically in its very long nose taking up every inch.
The drive out of Ferrari Brisbane’s showroom is always rather cheeky, saying goodbye to Franco and the team, all very serious and polite until the first corner of the side street when the enormous smile that instantly fills my face starts to appear as I absorb the pure luxury and craftsmanship of this unique supercar about to merge onto the M1 headed back to the Gold Coast.
There is no better place to put the car through its paces than the hinterland of the Gold Coast. I found myself quickly nestled into the long windy roads of Gilston, soon realizing the abundance of horsepower readily available at the touch of my toes. To be exact, 680hp or 507kw. Taking the car from 0-100 in 3.4s through a 7 speed transmission – and I forgot to mention the whole roof is panoramic glass which is a rather amazing feature.
Meticulous attention to design and carefully executed detailing has produced a cabin that is a flawless triumph of sporty luxury.
The elegance and style of this Ferrari was welcomed with open arms by our very good friends at the Grand Golf Club.
Again the GTC4Lusso is a car designed for those who want to experience the pleasure of driving a Ferrari anywhere, anytime including to the golf course.
Drivers who demand exceptional power but refuse to compromise on in-car comfort, sporty elegance and impeccable detailing will be pleasantly impressed.
The GTC4Lusso also debuts the new infotainment platform featuring 10.25” HD screen with a capacitive touch technology.
The New steering wheel is more compact thanks to a smaller airbag and integrated controls are more ergonomic than ever, for an ever sportier driving experience.
“Its dual cockpit architecture is another first, designed to enhance the shared driving experience for both the driver and passenger experience.
Inside, the Lusso has gone full Formula 1 style, with virtually every secondary control mounted on the steering wheel. That includes the ignition, the headlights, the turn signals, the windshield wipers, the manettino performance-mode dial, and the phone controls. Again all features that are very well known to the very special people who have the privilege of owning one of these beautiful cars in their time.
Its 12- Cylinder engine delivers smooth, consistent power, punching out 507kw or 680hp.
The Perfect Marriage of sportiness and Elegance…
The New Ferrari 4-seater hails a major evolution of the sporting Grand Tourer concept by integrating rear-wheel steering with four-wheel drive for the first time.
The Soundtrack brilliantly reflects the cars multifaceted personality – it is rich and powerful in performance driving and discreet yet harmonious in the city.
