Some time ago we told you about the end of production of the Ferrari GTC4Lusso and GTC4Lusso T. Both models will give way to the long-awaited Ferrari Purosangue, the first SUV from the firm of the Prancing Horse. However, Afzal Kahn did not want to miss the opportunity to pay tribute to this sports car with the brand new Ferrari GTC4 Grand Edition.
The automobile designer is responsible for a series of impressive bodies. Other limited edition vehicles that we have seen come out of his study are the ‘Vengeance’, based on an Aston Martin; as well as the ‘Flying Hunter’ 105 Longnose and Pick Up 6×6, both based on the iconic Defender. This latest project was first outlined in 2018.
The secrets of the Ferrari GTC4 Grand Edition
Kahn decided to create his own version of the Ferrari GTC4 paying homage to the brand’s past. The main change is the front fenders, which make a huge difference to the overall design. The new panels are hammer shaped. The result is smaller headlights and larger side vents that blend into the wheel arches.
we can also see grill changes. This adds additional round lights and a more prominent front splitter. Kahn says that he was inspired by the 2019 Ferrari Monza SP2 and the 1957 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa to make these changes. The body is painted in blue, adding white graphics and yellow brake calipers.
The forged wheels with finish diamond-cut They measure 20 inches in the front and 21 inches in the back. They are fitted with Continental ContiSportContact 5 P tires in dimensions 255/35 R20 at the front and 315/30R21 at the rear. The press release does not include information about the powertrain. We’re guessing the Grand Edition retains the original naturally aspirated 6.3-liter V12.
The 12-cylinder engine of the Ferrari GTC4Lusso releases 690 hp (507 kW) at 8,000 rpm. Both its power-to-weight ratio of 2.6kg/hp such as 13.5:1 compression set new records in their category. The maximum torque of it is 697Nm at 5,750rpm. Of the total, 80% available from just 1,750 rpm. This guarantees impressive response even at low revs.
Power is sent to all four wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Allows acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds and a maximum speed of 335 km/h.
