Ferrari is launching what is effectively an entry-level version of its GTC4Lusso four-seater.

The GTC4Lusso T is the first four-seat car in Ferrari history to be supplied with a turbocharged V8 engine, and also the first time the Italian brand has offered a car with two engine choices.

Choosing the 3.9-litre V8 turbo of the T brings 610hp with 760Nm of torque – this compares to the 690hp and 697Nm of torque produced by the 6.3-litre V12 powerplant of the standard GTC4Lusso.

The T version also does without the all-wheel-drive system, and as a result its 1740kg kerb weight is 180kg lighter, with the bias increased to 46:54 to suit the rear-wheel-drive transmission.

   

It will accelerate through 62mph from rest in 3.5 seconds, just a tenth behind the stock Lusso, and go on to 199mph, which is 9mph slower than the standard Lusso. Combined cycle fuel economy is quoted at 24.3mpg with CO2 emissions of 265g/km.

Technology retained in the GTC4LussoT does include the four-wheel-steering and side-slip control, while a Variable Boost Management system in the engine eliminates turbo lag.

The shooting-brake style car will be officially unveiled at the Paris Motor Show on 29th September. No price has yet been revealed for it – the V12 Lusso costs from £230,430.
