Ferrari’s Revolutionary New Four-Seater Unveiled in Japan
Tokyo, May 12, 2016 – Ferrari’s latest four-seater model, the “Ferrari GTC4Lusso” made its debut for the first time in Far East at a special launch event in Tokyo from May 10th through 12th.
Lusso means “luxury” in Italian and with a revolutionary new handling system that combines 4-wheel-drive and 4-wheel-steering, the GTC4Lusso is the best in class across all performance standards.
This highly acclaimed new car was unveiled in a venue decorated to resemble an Italian palazzo with a breathtaking aerial acrobatic performance that wowed the around 200 guests invited to this exclusive occasion.
At the entrance to the party were displayed two classic Ferraris. A 330GTC (1966) and a 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso (1963) reminded attendees of Ferrari’s long history of GT models, and the name GTC4Lusso references these legendary four-seater predecessors.
The model’s exclusive 4RM-S system (four-wheel-drive with four-wheel-steering) delivers in sublime performance in any driving conditions, from snowy mountains to city streets. Besides this astounding performance, the GTC4Lusso with innovative shooting brake design is rated most highly for its versatility and sporty elegance, which make it a Ferrari that can be driven anywhere, anytime.
CEO of Ferrari Far and Middle East Hub, Dieter Knechtel commented: “We are very happy to hold the GTC4Lusso Far East premiere here in Tokyo. Japan is an important market, and this year also marks our 50th anniversary here. The GTC4Lusso is the only GT car which has this exceptional level of performance, and with its remarkable versatility I am confident it will be extremely popular here, as it is proving to be in other similarly sophisticated markets.”
