Ferrari GTC4 Lusso: Powertrain
As always the most important component when talking about a Ferrari is the engine and when everyone s running after hybrid powertrains this one gets an old school naturally aspirated 6.2-litre V12. The engine delivers a max power output of 680bhp@8250rpm with earth shaking peak torque of 697Nm@5750rpm. It is also mated to a 7-speed dual clutch transmission. It can sprint from 0-100kph in just 3.4 seconds, whereas the maximum speed achievable is 335kph. This blistering performance is aided by the newly-designed piston heads, Ferrari’s anti-knock control software, multispark injection, Ferrari s 4RM-S (four-wheel drive, four-wheel steering) system, and overall weight reduction.
