Ferrari definitively discontinues the GTC4Lusso
The Purosangue SUV will succeed it
Presented in 2016 to replace the Ferrari FF, the GTC4Lusso is only four years old. The prancing horse family car is no longer offered in the catalogue and its production will cease in the next few days. The event takes all its importance when we know that the car will not be replaced.
The GTC4Lusso and its V8-powered sister, the GTC4Lusso T, are both affected by this sudden decision. Ferrari should therefore no longer be offering a shooting brake in the coming years, unless there is a special order, of course. This is not surprising as estate cars are clearly no longer popular with customers.
Instead, the Italian brand is concentrating on the most popular market, the SUV market. For example, Ferrari is anticipating the launch of its first raised vehicle, the Purosangue, which will indirectly replace the GTC4Lusso and play the role of a family car. A real heartbreaker for GTC4Lusso owners wishing to change their vehicle.
As a reminder, the Ferrari GTC4Lusso had a naturally aspirated 6.3-litre V12 developing 690 PS and 700 Nm of torque. The GTC4Lusso T had a 3.9 litre twin-turbo V8 producing 610 PS and 790 Nm of torque. The V12 was combined with all-wheel drive while the V8 was rear-wheel drive.
