Unveiled at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, the Ferrari GTC4Lusso, just like the FF it succeeds, is a three-door shooting-brake grand tourer with a front-mid-mounted V12 engine and an all-wheel-drive drivetrain mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automated manual transmission. The GTC4Lusso uses an improved version of Ferrari's patented 4RM Evo AWD system introduced with the FF, but further integrated with four-wheel steering into 4RM-S, making it the first Ferrari production model with such.
The GTC4Lusso's front-mid-mounted 6.3 L (6,262 cc; 382.1 cu in) naturally aspirated V12 engine, known internally as the F140 ED, generates 681 hp (508 kW) at 8,000 rpm and 514 ft·lb (697 N·m) at 5,750 rpm, along with a compression ratio of 13.5:1, all improved from the FF. The GTC4Lusso is heavier than its predecessor, with a weight of 4250 lb (1928 kg), resulting in a power-to-weight ratio of 353 hp (263 kW) per tonne or 6.24 lb (2.83 kg) per horsepower.
The GTC4Lusso, while keeping true to Ferrari's current design language, now uses quad circular rear lights for the first time since the Ferrari F430 and Ferrari 612 Scaglietti, albeit enlarged. The interior contains a dual cockpit concept design, with a central divider separating the driver cockpit and passenger cockpit.
Ferrari states that the GTC4Lusso is capable of 0 - 60 mph (97 km/h) in 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 208 mph (335 km/h).
The GTC4Lusso has the following rank statistics:
- Starting rank: 1400
- This is exactly identical to that of the Apollo Intensa Emozione and the MAX rank of the Ferrari 612 Scaglietti, as all three cars have the exact same top speed and nitro distribution.
- MAX rank: 1576 (+176)
- MAX+PRO rank: 1686 (+110)
- Tuning Kit bonus: +38
- Upgrade rank percentages: 20/40/10/30
- Nitro Efficiency: 5/10/15
While the Ferrari GTC4Lusso's acceleration isn't overly fast by any means, it still has a marginal improvement from the Ferrari FF, particularly due to having a higher nitro stat. The GTC4Lusso's performance is based on the FF but with some differences as discussed below.
Unlike the FF, the GTC4Lusso has a forced nitro efficiency of 5/10/15, making it the most nitro-efficient Ferrari car in the game. Unusually, the Apollo Intensa Emozione, the GTC4Lusso's top speed/nitro stat "pair" at stock, does not have a default nitro efficiency of 6/12/16, but instead a forced one of 6/11/13. The GTC4Lusso also has a nitro stat that is 12.5% higher than the FF's; because of this, the GTC4Lusso, even with the Elite Mapping of 0808 at MAX+PRO with a Tuning Kit, tops at 254.4 mph/409.7 km/h, compared to the FF's 256.8 mph/413.5 km/h. The GTC4Lusso's acceleration, as previously said, is a marginal improvement from the FF. The GTC4Lusso is still faster, though, with a total speed of 288.3 mph/464.3 km/h, making it the fifth fastest Class B car in terms of total speed.
A trait the GTC4Lusso inherited from the Ferrari FF is the subpar handling, owing to the car's similar weight and layout to the FF. With a similar weight of 4250 lb (1928 kg), the GTC4Lusso still has a very wide drifting radius of 31.4, perhaps the car's biggest disadvantage over most other Class B cars. For this reason, when approaching a corner that requires drifting, the trick of using the brake-drift trick, along with entering a drift earlier than normal, is recommended when using this car.
In Multiplayer, the Ferrari GTC4Lusso, while far from the worst choice, is still a rather unwise one. Even the best upgrade configuration for this car, which places the car's rank at B1668 with an upgrade configuration of 4525 5455 and Elite Mapping set to 0808, is still not competitive enough, as the GTC4Lusso only manages 287.9 mph/463.7 km/h with this upgrade configuration. Cars like the McLaren Mercedes MP4-25, Apollo Intensa Emozione, Porsche Carrera GT, and Porsche 918 Spyder with Weissach Package can get a higher total speed at either the same rank or lower, along with better overall performance. Especially due to the GTC4Lusso's poor handling, the GTC4Lusso's competitiveness is reduced to almost none.
The Ferrari GTC4Lusso's main specialty, though, is its dominance in Events, particularly those involving Tokyo, where nitro efficiency is a top priority. On a track like French Guiana, the GTC4Lusso, while faster than the McLaren MP4/8, isn't faster than the Holden Coupe 60 and Mercedes-AMG GT3 due to having a wider drifting radius and a slightly lower total speed. Unlike most top-end Class B cars, though, the GTC4Lusso doesn't cost more than 5,000 to purchase.
With the inclusion of the BMW M2 Special Edition in the Fall Out Boy Update and the Mazda RX-8 Special Edition in the 2018 Summer Update, the GTC4Lusso is now merely a collector's car as the M2 SE has a similar nitro efficiency of 6/10/15 but with superior top speed, handling, and lack of Elite status, while the RX-8 SE is faster overall with the downsides of lower nitro efficiency (7/13/17) and restrictive availability (it can only be obtained through its Research & Development event).
As with all Ferrari cars, the GTC4Lusso is eligible for all Career Mode events requiring a Ferrari car.
Upgrades cost 2,351,100 or 16,315 while Pro Kits require 1,430,700, 13 Class B Parts cards, 8 V12 Engines, 10 Early & Initial Tech cards, and 16 Mid-Tech cards. Tune-ups for the GTC4Lusso cost 2,500 and take 2h 30 min to complete.
