It is positioned as the line access version, before the version with V12 engine, so its price will be slightly lower, although it is not far behind in terms of performance. The Ferrari GTC4Lusso with supercharged engine equips a 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8 that offers 610 horsepower at 7,500 rpm and a maximum torque of 760 Nm between 3,000 and 5,250 rpm. These figures allow the GTC4Lusso T to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 3.5 seconds and achieve a maximum speed of 320 km / h, while its combined cycle consumption is 8.6 km / l and its emissions of 265 g / km.

This is not the first time that the Maranello house has taken such action, as we have already seen the Ferrari F60 America celebrating the 60th anniversary of the brand in the United States. The J50 was designed by the Ferrari Styling Center, which was in charge of completely transforming its body. Now it comes with a more personal aesthetic and inspired by the classic ‘barchettas’. The redesigned bumper is lower and aggressive and is accentuated by a black line that circulates it to the sides – F40 and F50 style. The new LED headlights are narrower and the hood receives two carbon fiber air intakes. One of the key changes to the F488 Spider, which takes as its basis, was the replacement of the retractable hardtop. Instead there will be a ‘targa’ roof made up of two pieces of carbon fiber that lodges behind the benches. At the rear also differences arise, where the main are the taillights. We return to the formula of two circular lanterns on each side that go on a black motor cap. The diffuser is also new and integrates the two exhaust outlets. Inside there will be some changes and besides, it can be customized to the taste of each client. The engine will remain the same 3.9-liter V8 biturbo, although it slightly increases its power over the F488 Spider. The Ferrari J50 develops 690 hp, and there is information on torque and performance. Only 10 copies will be manufactured and the price will certainly be prohibitive.
