Rear wheel steering not only makes parking easier, but also improves grip

The modern Ferraris get an additional multi-information display in front of the passenger seat which gives you all details of mode, engine setting, chassis setting and so on. This makes it engaging to the passenger as well. As I mentioned before, the 4WS was quite interesting. The GTC4Lusso gets this and this is actually known as 4RM-S in Ferrari speak which is 4-Wheel Drive and 4-Wheel Steering, all in one. At slow speeds, the rear wheels are turned slightly in the opposite direction from the front wheels. This helps by reducing the turning radius and making jobs like parking a lot easier. When things speed up, like on a racetrack, the rear wheels turn in the same direction as those upfront, improving stability and grip.

Undoubtedly one of the most memorable days of my life

Our drive, although short, was fun and it can be summed up as a perfect day at work. Who wouldn’t want their office for the day to be a Ferrari? One question I was asked was, if I had to pick one of the cars, what would it be? Well, it was a tough one. Both cars are exceptional in their own ways and are masterpieces. While the Portofino looks smashing, especially with its roof down, the GTC4Lusso was my pick as it was more engaging to drive and although marginally, had a sweeter and louder exhaust note. Surely, it was a great day to be an auto journalist. Will sum it up with Enzo Ferrari’s quote ‘If you can dream it, you can do it’
