Reliable fuel consumption data for comparison purposes is not available for this model.

In fairness to Ferrari, at a claimed 18.8mpg the GTC4Lusso is fractionally better on fuel than its predecessor, the FF, but running one is still going to be out of reach of the vast majority of motorists. It qualifies only for the most expensive tax and insurance premiums, consumables like the huge 20-inch specialist tyres it uses are going to be expensive to replace and even cleaning it requires extra care. You wouldn’t want to put it through a car wash.

However, there’s a 91-litre fuel tank so range is around 370 miles between fill-ups if you can somehow manage not to work that wonderful engine too hard. Ferrari’s seven-year free servicing arrangement is thrown in too, which at least alleviates some of the financial burden.

Just the one engine and gearbox combination here with no hybrid, no stop/start system (unlike the HELE system on the California T) and no eco options whatsoever when launched, so the CO2 emissions of every Ferrari GTC4Lusso are the same at 350g/km.

It’s fair to say that Ferrari’s reliability record isn’t among the best in the industry, and with the new GTC4Lusso there’s yet more to go wrong. While it’s difficult to comment on the car’s outright longevity, even during our day with the car we suffered a sat-nav mapping failure along with a suspected low-voltage issue that had the car telling us the four-wheel drive, electronic differential, Manettino and rear-wheel steering systems were no longer functioning. The official Ferrari remedy to this? “Drive faster,” apparently – the alternator wasn’t enjoying the low-speed route through winding mountains while we were stuck behind a squadron of cyclists.
