It’s time to specify your new Ferrari GTC4Lusso

Fancy a 680bhp V12 shooting brake? Ferrari's FF replacement has a configurator

In this spring’s battle of The Big Expensive V12 Super Configurators, Ferrari has hit back at Aston’s opening DB11 salvo with a spangly new visualiser for the GTC4Lusso. Yep, a spacebar seemingly isn’t on the options list of Modena’s hot hatch.

Thankfully, all of the bits of the spec that left us goggle-eyed when Ferrari announced the GTC4Lusso back a month ago are fitted as standard.

Take the 6.3-litre, naturally aspirated V12. It develops a monstrous, McLaren F1-beating 680bhp, up from 651bhp in the more bijou-named FF predecessor. So quite some hot hatch. Remember to tick the sports exhaust box.

Also generously thrown in on the house is the rear-wheel-steering system, designed to make the Lusso more agile in the tight’n’twisty stuff – or negotiating seven-star hotel promenades – and reassuringly stable when approaching its 208mph top speed.

In between those two disciplines, you’ll be having more fun, Ferrari reckons. Side Slip Angle Control, the drift-friendly electro-safety net that’s been honed on the 458 Speciale and 488 GTB, has been shoehorned into the Lusso’s four-wheel-drive brain. Well, if you’re going to buy the four-seat Ferrari, you might as well be confident in your ability in showing off to passengers.

Speaking of which, TG.com must recommend the optional ‘passenger display’, for real-time petrifying of your front-seat companion via revs, speed and G-force data.

So time to spec yours, via this link. We’ve decided to eschew the clichéd red or more sober grey paintwork for a classic mix of British racing green with ‘Cuoio’ beige cabin upholstery, and the least blingy wheels over golden calipers. Rather fetching, don’t you think? Let us know if you’ve done better below…
