Ferrari has seemingly confirmed plans to end production of its four-door GTC4Lusso, with the upcoming Purosangue set to replace it.
Speaking to Motor1.com, a Ferrari spokesperson said the four-seater model had reached the end of the road.
“In accordance with its five-year model strategy announced in 2017 and the company’s standard model lifecycle, Ferrari has phased out production of the GTC4Lusso and GTC4Lusso T,” the spokesperson told the publication.
Of course, the Italian company is gearing up to introduce its first SUV (though Ferrari will likely not use that description), which will be called the Purosangue. This model will effectively replace the GTC4Lusso.
The Maranello-based firm’s four-seat grand tourer was launched in 2016 as the successor to the Ferrari FF, with a naturally aspirated 6,3-litre V12 up front sending 507 kW and 697 N.m to all four corners.
The GTC4Lusso T, meanwhile, arrived soon thereafter, employing a turbocharged 3,9-litre V8 engine directing 448 kW and 760 N.m to the rear axle. The V12 model hits 100 km/h from standstill in a claimed 3,4 seconds (one-tenth faster than the turbocharged V8 variant), before topping out at 335 km/h (15 km/h up on the eight-cylinder model).
Both the GTC4Lusso and the GTC4Lusso T are still listed on Scuderia South Africa’s website. According to our friends over at duoporta.com, the V12 is currently priced from R6 531 900 while the V8 comes in from R5 664 000.
