The Ferrari GTC4Lusso T Loses The Big V12 For A Twin-Turbo V8 And Rear-Wheel-Drive

In February, Ferrari unveiled the facelifted FF in the form of the 2017 GTC4Lusso, an all-wheel-drive grand tourer with a name that looks more like a hashtag than anything else. That car had the big nasty V12 engine, but today we’re getting something new. A Ferrari shooting brake with rear-wheel-drive and a smaller V8.

It’s called the GTC4Lusso T, which Ferrari says has an “evolution” of the 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8 and can produce a hair over 600 HP. The T also loses the all-wheel-drive setup. Ferrari says that it has hacked off a bunch of weight by converting it to rear-wheel-drive, and yet it still comes with rear-wheel-steering.


The V12 GTC4Lusso is higher on power, at 681, yes, but in the T you get less weight and a RWD grand tourer. Which one to buy comes down to your personal preferences, and if you hate driving all four wheels, I suppose.

As for other meatier details—like specifically how much weight was saved, if it’s any comfier or what sort of nefarious miscreant would opt for the hysterically dangerous RWD over AWD—weren’t mentioned in the press release, which was thin in details to begin with.

Pricing has yet to be announced.
