Streetscene – Ferrari GTC4 Lusso

Posted By: Simon Sage | Posted On: 8th September 2019

I just happened to look out of the office window this week and saw this fabulous Ferrari GTC4 Lusso in the visitor's car park. So I just had to grab my camera and nip down and take it's photo. After all, it's not every day a £200,000+ supercar just rocks up into your car park ! Details - It's a three door shooting hatchback with four wheel drive. It has a 6.2 litre V12 engine producing 690 bhp and a 0-60 mph of 3.4 seconds. A new one would cost £250,000 and we think it's one of the best looking Ferrari's for a while - others may disagree of course ! We think the colour - official Ferrari name is Gregio Silverstone - is quite discrete and you could probably get away with parking in your local supermarket car park without attracting too much attention. That is until you started it up ! Then who could resist a few weeeeee, weeeeee on the throttle before driving off ! Now where did I put that winning lottery ticket ?!!!
