Ferrari has revealed the latest in its line of GT cars in Sydney, with the GTC4 Lusso T coming in at a cool $503,888 before on road costs.
Powered by a 449kW version of the 488 GTB engine (which makes 492kW), it runs a rear-drive, rear-steer chassis that’s 50kg lighter than its V12 big brother, the GTC4 Lusso. The V12 makes 507kW, in case you were wondering.
Ferrari’s amazeballs seven-speed dual-clutch transaxle take pride of place between the 20-inch rear wheels, and there are carbon-ceramic brakes all round.
The Lusso T blasts to 0-100km/h in just 3.5sec, which is 0.1sec slower than the V12 Lusso. It will also ‘only’ do 320km/h to the V12’s 335km/h. I know, right?
It’s been built to take on the flood of customers eyeing off stupidly expensive SUVs like the Bentley Bentayga, as well as capturing a raft of upwardly mobile types looking to graduate from top-end Mercs and Audis.
“This is the car we expect to be used for the school drop off, the supermarket run, the everyday inner-city commute, all the way to weekend getaways. It’s an all-encompassing car,” Ferrari Australia managing director Herbert Appleroth told MOTOR.
While the stock price is $503,888 before on-roads, the example you see here is more like $630,000. Ferrari’s options list is long and eye-watering, with Mr Appleroth suggesting that customers spend on average $65,000 – or about the cost of a Ford Mustang GT – on personalisation options.
Apple CarPlay, sir? That’ll be $6790, please. Oh, a front parking camera? A snip at $6000. And those Scuderia Ferrari shields? $3100 to you, madam.
