So FF has become GTC4Lusso? Maybe the old name was too literal. Four seat, four-wheel drive. Not very sexy. Whatever the reason, it’s now the GTC4Lusso. As names go this one’s a bit clunky, but it does talk to Ferrari’s history. And Ferrari is good at liaising with its back catalogue, not just through plucked names, but through model continuation - the mid-engined V8 sports car, the front engined V12 coupe. These are long running themes at Maranello. Ah, but the FF was 4wd – Ferrari hadn’t done that before. Yes, but if you look beyond the clever power take-off at the front of the engine that drives the front wheels, the FF slotted into a familiar Ferrari niche. Here was a front-engine V12 four seater that could actually seat four, and for extra brownie points, swallow their luggage too. It required little compromise, delivered where it needed to, exceeded expectations. But that was five years ago, what’ve they done to freshen it up?
