Ferrari's successor to the FF is now available locally

Ferrari's possibly most practical vehicle is now officially in the Philippines. Making its global debut back in 2016, the GTC4Lusso succeeds the highly successful Ferrari FF as the brand's new four seat grand tourer. Today, Autostrada Motore Inc., the official Ferrari distributor in the Philippines, held the launch of the GTC4Lusso at Okada Manila in Paranaque City.

Similar to the FF that it replaced, the GTC4Lusso is a 3-door shooting brake with 2+2 seating capacity. It is powered by a front-mid mounted 6.3-liter V12 which produces 690 PS and 700 Nm of torque. Power is then sent to all-four wheels via a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. Top speed is rated at 335 km/h and it can go from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.4 seconds.

To help put the power down, GTC4Lusso benefits from various features. It is fitted with active rear-wheel steering courtesy of the Slip Slide Control, E-Diff, a torque vectoring system and Magnaride Damper Control.

Ferrari's four-seat grand tourer can also be had with a twin-turbo V8 called the GTC4Lusso T. In place of the 6.3-liter V12 is a Ferrari 488-derived 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8. The turbocharged V8 engine produces 610 PS and 760 Nm of torque which is then mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Unlike its V12 counterpart, the GTC4Lusso T sends power only to the rear wheels. Ferrari claims it can go from 0 to 100km/h in 3.5 seconds and reach a top speed of over 320km/h.

Design-wise, the GTC4Lusso looks similar to that of its predecessor in front. It sports a long hood, with subtly redesigned headlights, grill and bumper. At the rear however, it greatly differs from the FF. Gone are the singular circle tailights. Instead these have been replaced with Ferrari's new siganture dual taillight design.

Though Autostrada Motore launched the V12-powered GTC4Lusso, interested buyers may also inquire about the twin-turbo V8 GTC4Lusso T. Those interested in the Ferrari GTC4Lusso or GTC4Lusso T may visit the official Ferrari dealership in Bonifacio Global City for viewings and inqueries. 

Pricing for both the GTC4Lusso and GTC4Lusso T is on a per application basis.
