Ferrari has unveiled a new, er, "entry-level" GTC4Lusso variant, with the latest version of the four-seater featuring a 3,9-litre V8 turbo.
The newcomer is dubbed the GTC4Lusso T, and its arrival marks the first time Ferrari has offered a choice of engines in a single model. The full-fat GTC4Lusso, of course, is still available, and employs a 6,2-litre naturally aspirated V12.
That V12 model furthermore features all-wheel drive, while the new GTC4Lusso T has all of its oomph sent to the rear instead. This saves somewhere in the region of 80 kg, and also means that the new model features an increased weight bias towards the rear.
The force-fed V8 comes from the California T, but in this latest application makes 449 kW and 760 N.m (that's 58 kW down on the V12, but 63 N.m more). The obligatory sprint from zero to 100 km/h takes 3,5 seconds (one-tenth slower than the 12-cylinder model), while the top speed is listed simply as "more than 320 km/h".
The new derivative of the FF-successor will be on display at the Paris Motor Show.
