Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

Even the ‘entry-level’ Lusso T costs around £200,000, and it’s easy to push that price over £250,000 once you’ve added a few options. So why wouldn’t you just go for the V12, I hear you ask? Well, it depends entirely on circumstance. If you live in a rural area or frequently travel to ski resorts, then the added traction of the four-wheel-drive Lusso is a real boon. And there’s also the fact that the 12-cylinder engine in the Lusso brings a whole heap of drama and aural appeal to the driving experience that, in a Ferrari, is really rather important.

However, for those who plan to drive their GTC4 on long distances – and why wouldn’t you? – it’s hard to ignore the fuel economy benefits that the V8 brings (24.8mpg versus the V12’s 18.8mpg). Now, that may not look a lot on paper, but factor in the 91-litre petrol tank and that’s a range increase of around 30%. In our book, that’s a serious win for the Lusso T.
