The latest model GTC4Lusso T is yet another example of the masterful capabilities of the Ferrari brand.
When it comes to luxury motor vehicles, one does not have to look further than the Ferrari brand to experience sports car perfection. We at Hadag Magazine have always been fans of this iconic brand thanks to its consistent production of visually stunning, high-performance machines. Thanks to the great team at Ferrari Bahrain, we were given the opportunity to inspect and test drive the impressive 2020 GTC4Lusso T, an experience we thoroughly enjoyed from start to finish.
It was immediately obvious the GTC4Lusso T was created with speed in mind with every bodyline and curve designed to maximise aerodynamics. Exuding elegance and exclusivity, this car effortlessly combines sportiness with extreme luxury and cuttingedge technology. The exterior design of the 2020 model is so flawless in nature, it is easy to lose track of time taking in all of its splendour.
The engine’s additional power and need for improved cooling led to the design of a larger front grille and more centred air intakes, whilst the side sections of the bumpers have been turned into a single smooth surface. On the flanks there is now a three-louvre air vent as well as ducts behind the louvres that lead to both the engine compartment and the front wheel arch. These reduce internal pressure which not only cuts drag but also boosts downforce. At the backend, a slotted diffuser and rear spoiler integrated with the hatch, focus on reducing drag, adding to the aerodynamic efficiency of the vehicle.
The meticulous attention to interior design and detail by the master craftsmen at Ferrari has created a cabin that is a flawless triumph of sporty luxury. All of the materials, trimmings and finishes are of a premium quality whilst the sports seats are both supportive and comfortable. The layout for all controls was developed with accessibility and functionality in mind, with many conveniently located on the superbly designed steering wheel.
The GTC4Lusso T features unique Dual Cockpit architecture, designed to enhance the shared driving experience for both driver and passenger. It also incorporates the latest interaction of the infotainment system complete with an impressive 10.25” HD capacitive touchscreen. There is plenty of knee and head room on offer in the rear seats, whilst the decently sized boot offers a respectable compartment for luggage, increasing greatly in capacity when the rear seats are folded down.
As breath-taking as both the exterior and interior of the GTC4Lusso T are, it was the performance capabilities of the vehicle that provided most of the excitement. The sound of the 3.9-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine is music to the ears and turned every head we drove past on the tarmac. With a power output of 610 cv at 7500 rpm and a maximum torque of 760 Nm between 3000 and 5250 rpm, this car has enough power on offer for several vehicles. Boasting a top speed of 335km/h and the capability of accelerating from 0-100 km/h in just 3.4 seconds and from 0-200 km/h in 10.8 seconds, this capable car is amongst the quickest on the market.
The GTC4Lusso T’s power is kept in check by the vehicle’s smooth handling, ample traction and impressive braking system. In truth, this car has far too many features and improvements in performance, control, safety and design to mention in one article and one would need to own one of these vehicles for a length of time in order to fully appreciate what it has to offer. What we have not yet mentioned about this luxury sportscar is that it was, in fact, pre-owned.
Ferrari Bahrain have made this elite brand more accessible and affordable through their Ferrari pre-owned certification programme. Ferrari Approved cars are always monitored and in perfect condition, as proven by the GTC4Lusso T we test drove. The programme comprises of a series of 190 individual checks and several guarantees including, a detailed technical inspection by Ferrari technicians, verification of origin and maintenance history, presale preparation of the exterior and interior, a Ferrari guarantee of up to 24 months as well as Ferrari roadside assistance for up to 24 months.
All of this takes place in compliance with Ferrari standards of safety, performance and reliability. All-in-all, we were hugely impressed by both the design and performance features of this sporty model, as well as by Ferrari Bahrain itself and their Ferrari Approved initiative. In fact, we can honestly say this was one of our most memorable motorcar experiences to date. For more information on the 2020 GTC4Lusso T, as well as to book a luxury test drive of your very own,
