Ferrari GTC4Lusso retires to make way for Purosangue SUV
Ferrari has given the glorious GTC4Lusso its golden watch as it prepares to release the first SUV for tifosi.
The all-wheel-drive shooting brake was a development of the FF four-seater which originally made its debut in 2011, so the platform is getting old, even if the essential idea and epic performance will never get tired.
The GTC4Lusso was at its best when powered by a 6.3-liter, 681 hp V-12, but it became a tad more accessible when Ferrari introduced a twin-turbo, 602 hp, 3.9-liter V-8 to the mix. Either option gave you one of the most spacious and luxurious Ferraris ever built.
Mated to an all-wheel drive system and four-wheel steering the GTC4Lusso was perhaps the perfect Ferrari daily driver if you had $260,000 to spare and mountain passes to cross on your commute.
Ferrari will plug the gap left behind with its upcoming Purosangue SUV, which is due to launch in 2022.
