2017 Ferrari GTC4Lusso vs. Its Competition

2017 Ferrari GTC4 Lusso
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The Ferrari GTC4 Lusso is one of the most versatile super-fast luxury cars on the planet -- especially if you don't want a car with the profile or more formal proportions of a sedan or wagon.

Alternatives, therefore, are largely compromises.

Ferrari's own F12 Berlinetta is even more powerful, even faster, but considerably less spacious, especially when it comes to cargo.

Audi's R8 is another call-up from a league below the GTC4, but again, it has standard all-wheel drive, a potent V-10 engine is available, and it's very quick.

The Bentley Continental GT is likewise a bit short on luggage space, but in Speed form, it's very quick, all-wheel drive, and suitably exclusive; maybe the new Bentayga is closer in mission, if not on the ground? The Lamborghini Huracan has all-wheel drive but doesn't come close to offering the Lusso's level of hatchback (or shooting brake) convenience.

Finally, the Nissan GT-R offers performance numbers that are even better than those of the Lusso, acceleration-wise; its handling is phenomenal as well, but everything about driving (or being a passenger) in the GT-R is quite direct and harsh.
