Ferrari GTC4Lusso T: More torque, more turbos, less everything else

Now you can have your supercar-wagon thingy in either V8 or V12 variants.

That was fast. It was only earlier this year that Ferrari premiered the GTC4Lusso, the strong-shaped successor to the all-wheel drive FF. Not even a year has passed since then, but Ferrari's already released a subsequent GTC4Lusso model, the GTC4Lusso T, although the two are quite different.

The GTC4Lusso T packs a twin-turbocharged, 3.9-liter V8 good for about 600 horsepower and 560 pound-feet of torque. The non-T Lusso rocks a 6.3-liter V12, putting out about 680 hp and 514 torques. So with the new Lusso T, it's a bit down on horsepower, but it makes up for it with additional torque.

That's not all. The Lusso's all-wheel-drive system has been cast aside in favor of a lighter, rear-drive setup. The car's four-wheel steering remains, though. The V8 engine in the GTC4Lusso T also shifts the weight balance toward the rear, which should help out its handling a bit.

The GTC4Lusso T is not a replacement, but rather, it's an alternative. The two variants will be sold alongside one another, with the T likely costing a bit less than the older model, since you're getting a bit less. But in the real world, and not just the microcosm of Ferrari, that "bit less" is still a hell of a lot of car.

The rear end also kind of looks like Bert from "Sesame Street."
