Ferrari Drops The GTC4Lusso And GTC4Lusso T From Its Range

If you’re a fan of practical Ferraris, you might want to act fast as the company has reportedly ended production of the GTC4Lusso and GTC4Lusso T.

In a statement to Motor1, a spokesperson said “In accordance with its five-year model strategy announced in 2017, and the company’s standard model life cycle, Ferrari has phased out production of the GTC4Lusso and GTC4Lusso T.”

While Ferrari initially denied the GTC4Lusso was being phased out, eliminating the model makes sense as it would free up room for the Purosangue crossover. In fact, the company appears to be testing Purosangue prototypes wearing GTC4Lusso bodies.

Introduced at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, the GTC4Lusso has a 6.3-liter V12 engine that produces 681 hp (507 kW / 690 PS) and 513 lb-ft (697 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission which is paired to a standard all-wheel drive system. This setup enables the model to accelerate from 0-62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.4 seconds, before hitting a top speed of 208 mph (335 km/h).

The GTC4Lusso T, on the other hand, has a twin-turbo 3.9-liter V8 that develops 602 hp (449 kW / 610 PS) and 560 lb-ft (759 Nm) of torque. Besides the smaller engine, the turbocharged variant is rear-wheel drive only. Thanks to the weight saving, performance is somewhat similar as the dash to 62 mph (100 km/h) takes 3.5 seconds and the model has a top speed in excess of 199 mph (320 km/h).

Besides the impressive performance, the cars were notable for their four-seat interiors and cargo compartment which held up to 15.9 cubic feet (450 liters) of luggage. Of course, that figure will likely be dwarfed by the upcoming Purosangue.
