Is There a Ferrari Hatchback…Shooting Brake?

No matter where you go, you’ll encounter performance enthusiasts who insist that nothing compares to a high-powered, luxury-styled shooting brake/hatchback. Hatchbacks tend to handle brilliantly, and since they offer plenty of cargo space, they’re perfect for drivers who love long-distance road trips or often travel with sporting gear. These vehicles can really do it all—but is there a Ferrari hatchback that will satisfy fans of the Prancing Horse? You bet.

What is the Ferrari Hatchback or Shooting Brake Called?

If you’re ready to start searching, you’ve probably got one important question on your mind: what is the Ferrari hatchback or shooting brake called? As it turns out, Ferrari has manufactured no fewer than three hatchbacks over the past decade or so:

  • The Ferrari FF was manufactured from 2011 to 2016, and a total of 2,291 models were produced under this nameplate. Befitting its status as a revolutionary hot hatch, the FF was equipped with the largest engine that Ferrari had ever offered, road-ready vehicle. Its 6.3-liter naturally aspirated V12 is capable of delivering a still-impressive 650 hp and 504 lb-ft of torque.
  • The Ferrari GTC4Lusso was produced from 2016 to 2020, and as the direct successor of the FF, the GTC4Lusso was also equipped with a 6.3-liter, naturally aspirated V12. Here, output was tuned to 681 hp and 514 lb-ft of torque—resulting in an even more enjoyable drive. Although the FF and the GTC4Lusso have very similar dimensions, the GTC4Lusso has a more aggressive stance, thanks to its more pronounced front wheel wells.
  • The Ferrari GTC4Lusso T—manufactured from 2017 to 2020—looks more or less identical to the Ferrari GTC4Lusso. However, the “T” model refers to the twin turbo V8 engine and a lighter curb weight. Moreover, although it features the GTC4Lusso’s four-wheel steering system, the GTC4Lusso T is rear-wheel drive only. With 602 hp and 561 lb-ft of torque, the GTC4Lusso T is an impressive force in its own right.

No matter which Ferrari hatchback feels like the right fit for your needs, we’re sure you’ll love how it handles the roads of greater Chicagoland.

What is “Lusso”?

You’ve seen that Ferrari has made several hatchbacks over the years, and you’ve also seen that today’s most popular Ferrari hatchbacks are subtitled with the “Lusso” moniker—but what is “Lusso” exactly? Lusso is an Italian word that translates to “luxury” or “lavishness” in English. In colloquial Italian usage, “lusso” can also be used to indicate that some task or activity has gone very well. We don’t think it’s difficult to see why Ferrari has chosen the “Lusso” name for their hottest hatchbacks.
