If you were absolutely in love with the Ferrari FF, we've got some bad news for you. Well, maybe.

The Ferrari FF is no more, and in its place is this -- the GTC4Lusso.

The GTC4Lusso takes an evolutionary, not revolutionary, approach to Ferrari's shooting brake.

But, at the same time, it's also a bit of a throwback.

Both the GTC and Lusso parts of its name are references to Ferraris of old.

The number 4, on the other hand, could refer to several things -- seating capacity, number of driven wheels or how many wheels are capable of steering the car.

The GTC4Lusso borrows its rear-wheel steering from the F12 Berlinetta.

The GTC4Lusso's engine is a 6.3-liter V-12.

That engine is cranking out 680 brake horsepower and 514 pound-feet of torque.

That's enough to catapult the car to 62 mph in 3.4 seconds, and it'll pull all the way up to 208 mph.

The GTC4Lusso's interior still contains the right-side display from before, which puts pertinent information (revs, speed and so on) in front of the passenger.

Ferrari certainly has a way with interiors, doesn't it?

If you have a passenger who has a tendency to freak out in fast cars, you might want to put them in the rear seat instead.

Another new bit of interior tech is sitting front and center -- a 10-inch, high-definition touchscreen infotainment system.

The steering wheel's quintessential mode knob (called the manettino, Italian for "little lever") is present and accounted for.

The turn signals are still on the steering wheel, too.

The GTC4Lusso's sport seats look quite supportive.

Naturally, the screens on either side of the tachometer can be customized to display different kinds of data.

If you've never driven a car before, and you hop into this GTC4Lusso, you're going to be awfully confused when you get into your second car.

This new infotainment screen bears absolutely no resemblance to anything from Fiat Chrysler, which still owned Ferrari when this car was developed.

One of the largest design changes between FF and GTC4Lusso is the strong brow that spans the entire rear end.

"More than you can afford, pal."

In fact, that strong line across the rear end resembles a unibrow.

Ferrari probably doesn't appreciate us saying that its car has a unibrow, though.

Carbon ceramic brakes? But of course.

The best part of a shooting brake? You can actually store things in it.
