Watch Kimi Raikkonen Hoon the Ferrari GTC4Lusso T
The twin-turbocharged 3.9-liter V8 sounds great…if you were wondering.
Ferrari's turbocharged 3.9-liter V8 brought a lot of buzz when the Italian auto manufacturer opted to drop it in the GTC4Lusso T. Normally Ferrari has felt more comfortable with naturally aspirated V8s and V12s, but boy, does the new twin-turbocharged 601-horsepower, 560 pound-foot 3.9-liter V8 purr. For those of you worrying that four less cylinders would equate to a "slow Ferrari," the GTC4Lusso T darts from 0 to 62 mph in 3.5 seconds.
To really show off the beautiful lines and sounds of the GTC4Lusso T, Ferrari threw Formula 1 driver Kimi Raikkonen behind the wheel and let him barrel around a few winding roads for a little while—and captured it all on camera. In the short video, viewers get to see Kimi bang through gears in the backwoods.
Unfortunately, you can’t really hear the turbo whine you would expect from a twin-turbocharged Italian sports car, but we are far from complaining. We also feel obligated to mention the bizarre turn to hockey that occurs, as the second half of the video is primarily Kimi skating with a Ferrari team in front of a fake crowd. Again, not complaining...just felt the need to mention it.
