2017 Ferrari GTC4Lusso Configurator Launches

MARANELLO, Italy — An online configurator for the 2017 Ferrari GTC4Lusso has gone live, allowing fans to build their own virtual version of Ferrari's new four-seat supercar.

Ferrari spokesperson Morgan Theys told Edmunds that the GTC4Lusso, which goes on sale this spring, will begin arriving at dealerships in the fall, priced at "approximately $300,000." Formal pricing will be announced later.

The GTC4Lusso will line up against such competitors as the Aston Martin Rapide, Maserati Quattroporte and Porsche Panamera Turbo S.

The configurator shows that the GTC4Lusso will be available in 27 exterior colors, including Giallo Modena (yellow), Grigio Alloy (metallic gray), Bianco Italia (white), Nero Daytona (metallic black) and, of course, five different shades of red.

Buyers will be able to select from such options as five wheel styles, nine colors of brake calipers, a sport exhaust system, various grille trims, a panoramic roof and two front parking cameras.

Extensive interior customization includes the choice of 15 leather seat colors with 14 contrasting inserts, 18 colors of horsehead stitching for the headrests and nine seatbelt colors. The headliner, dashboard and center tunnel come in 15 different color options, while the carpets are available in nine.

There are five different tachometer styles, as well as an upgraded entertainment system that can be outfitted with Apple CarPlay.

One very cool option is a unique digital passenger information display on the right side of the dashboard, which includes a speedometer, tachometer and gear position indicator.

After configuration is finished, the site displays an image of the custom GTC4Lusso and allows shoppers to save their work and then download a PDF with all the information a dealer would need to place an order.

Buyers can also request detailed information from Ferrari directly from the configurator.

The 2017 GTC4Lusso, Ferrari's first model with rear-wheel steering and four-wheel drive, is aimed at younger buyers who will appreciate its four-place cabin and roomy luggage compartment for everyday use.

Still, it retains many of the qualities demanded by owners of modern exotics, including superior handling and a 6.3-liter V12 engine that produces 680 horsepower and 514 pound-feet of torque. That power plant is said to take the GTC4Lusso to a top speed of 208 mph and propel it from zero to 62 mph in a scant 3.4 seconds.

Edmunds says: Even car shoppers who can't afford the price tag of the 2017 Ferrari GTC4Lusso can spend hours playing with the configurator and dreaming.
