    It certainly is in my case! My fourth year of ownership will start in January 2021 and I have been very happy with the car in various dimensions so far. Image Unavailable, Please Login What a great allround / all year V12 it certainly is and so practical!

    It is for me as well. Just booked the appointment with my dealership to get 2 years of warranty extension, as my car will be 3 in February.

    Same. I'm on my second Lusso and hated that gap between owning one.

    I might have an FF, but it is soon 5 years old, and I have no idea what to exchange it for either so it will for sure stay!

    Great to hear! I also had an FF before. I agree it is rawer than the GTC4 Lusso. Are you still happy with it or do you consider to switch eventually?

    Had two FF's, now own a GTC4 Lusso for over a year. I understand the slightly softer way the Lusso deals with how it is driven however It is still more capable than the FF.
    The only real all year round way to drive a single Ferrari.
    It is a a shame Ferrari think the way forward is a SUV the law of physics will always show up the mass of any SUV?

    So I will keep the Lusso.

    I asked the staff at Ferrari when I ran the Corso Pilota on Ice exactly that. Their answer was the front diff on the Lusso is far better than the FF and a much easier car to slog through the snow drifts

    equal fun more refinement hence more capable in it's span of drivability.
    Having driven in excess of 25k miles in FF's the Lusso as a broader ability.

    I have to say that of the five Corso Pilota courses I took, this one on Ice with the Lusso was not just the best of the five it was also hands down the most fun I have ever had on any track anywhere at anytime. Ever. When this BS clears up I am the first to sign up for the next round or three of whatever Ferrari offers...

    Also more capable of going slow :D

    In all seriousness, its just much more sorted, which is what you get with a newer model.

    Definitely a keeper. Just extended warranty as well. Also my first Ferrari, but feel like there isn't going to much to replace this v12 with soon. May have to retire it from daily duties at some point but don't expect to get rid of it.

    Bought with extended warranty slightly used 2018 Lusso after 3 years 25 k miles in a FF.

    Love them both.



    Cannot imagine something better for a DD but I am sure Ferrari can.
