When it comes to the GTC4Lusso, Ferrari's official introduction was followed by a series of renderings showing the all-wheel-drive Maranello machine as an open-top vehicle, for instance. And while the vehicle did thrill a select audience at private unveilings, we hadn't seen the family man's Prancing Horse out in the wild.
We are here to give you just that, with a GTC4Lusso having recently been spotted in Portugal by the local high octane awareness community. The Ferrari traveled to the warm side of the Old Continent to shoot a promotional video, as confirmed by the presence of the Mercedes ML camera car.

While the GTC4Lusso kept the Tailor Made Nuovo Grigio Ferro Met hue it has displayed so far, to our eyes, the real world pictures change the perspective a bit.

To be more precise, the press photos played with lighting and contrast details in a way that, naturally, highlighted the visual differences between the newcomer and the now-retired FF.

However, by the looks of it, the real deal is closer to its predecessor in terms of appearance than Ferrari initially wanted us to believe. Which, of course, isn't half bad.

We've always adored the shooting brake aura of the FF. Sure, purists may cringe when seeing the silhouette of the four-wheel-drive Ferrari, but there are two things we need to mention.

After so many decades of playing the Grand Tourer game, people are starting to get tired of having to treat the rear side of the cabin as if it was built for Lilliputians. And a GT should never make one tired, which is where Ferrari's creation steps in.

Then there's the sheer beauty of the thing. Conformists should check out some of the design proposals for the FF before pointing their finger at the production model. Another way to treat anybody's FF anxiety is to subject them to a cross-continent trip in a beater Miata, but that can be complicated.
