Naza Italia has unveiled the Ferrari GTC4Lusso T in Malaysia – the second variant of the four-seater shooting brake was revealed earlier this evening in tandem with the car’s official launch at the Paris Motor Show today. The turbocharged variant of the facelifted and renamed FF follows on the normally-aspirated GTC4Lusso, which made its debut in Geneva back in March.

The forced-induction GTC4 shares the same dimensions as the NA model, measuring in at 4,922 mm long, 1,980 mm wide and 1,383 mm tall. The new V8 variant – which sits below the V12 in the model hierarchy – is equipped with a 3.9 litre V8 turbo unit from the F154 engine family, and in terms of output is placed in between that of the Tipo F154 BB in the California T and CB in the 488 GTB.

Output figures for the unit in the Lusso T is 601 hp (or 610 cheval vapeur) at 7,500 rpm and 760 Nm from 3,000 to 5,250 rpm. In comparison, the 6.3 litre V12 Tipo F140 EB in the normally-aspirated GTC4 has 680 hp at 8,000 rpm and 697 Nm at 5,750 rpm, essentially more power but less torque.

The engine is paired with a Getrag seven-speed F1 DCT unit. Like the other F154 engines, the mill features a pair of twin-scroll turbochargers with Variable Boost Management software, which adjusts torque delivery to suit the gear selected.

Performance figures for the turbo GTC4 include a 0-100 km/h time of 3.5 seconds and a top speed over 320 km/h. The NA variant is a shade quicker to the century mark and has a higher top speed (0-100 km/h in 3.4 seconds, 335 km/h top speed).

Aside from the engine, the Lusso T differs from its NA sibling in some aspects. It has a rear-wheel drive layout, while the NA variant features a 4RM-S four-wheel drive system. Four-wheel steering is present, but the system is integrated with Side Slip Control (SSC3) on the turbo, while the NA comes with SSC4.

The interior is also identical for the two models, according to Ferrari Far and Middle East Hub CEO Dieter Knechtel, who said that there was no difference in trim and materials between the NA and turbo. An easy spot is with the GTC4Lusso badging on the end of the dashboard at the passenger side to help identify the variant; on the turbo an additional ‘T’ letter is to be found.

No shortage of displays in the car – a centrally-mounted 10.25-inch full HD capacitive touchscreen and two five-inch TFT VGA displays housed in the instrument cluster are standard items, while an 8.8-inch full HD touchscreen display for the passenger, placed within the occupant’s direct field of vision on the dash console, is an option.

Pricing for the GTC4Lusso T was revealed at the preview – the turbocharged four-seater is being introduced at the base price of RM1,088,000 (excluding duty and customisation options)
