The appeal of the Ferrari GTC4 Lusso is that you can comfortably seat 4 people, get groceries and break new lap records at the Nürburgring in one day.
Shmee150 is one of the biggest automotive YouTubers on the planet. He has over 2 million subscribers and of course has a famous collection of cars, which he dubbed his shmeemobiles. He also likes to visit the Nürburgring, but hasn’t really taken his Ferrari GTC4Lusso still around the track. That changes in his latest video, however, as he takes the car to the track, with a difference. He will also take three of his friends to the circuit, in what is technically the family Ferrari.
Getting around the Nürburgring
A 6.3-liter V12 developing 690 hp should provide enough power to move around the track, even with four people in the car. And what’s great about this video is that it’s a more natural Shmee150 video, with just him and his three buddies having a little fun on the track. Shmee and his friends head for the track entrance, then he unleashes that glorious V12 and plants his foot to begin the sightseeing lap around the circuit, on what is an open public toll road with unlimited speed limits.
Excellent performance despite the weight
Now, you might not expect the Ferrari to do so well considering it has four people, and it’s not Shmee alone. But surprisingly, it seems to handle very well even with the extra weight. Shmee150 says the steering is much better than he expected, with or without his extra cargo. However, it gets a bit bumpy in the Fox Hole section of the trail. It’s easy to forget because Shmee150 says it’s a really fast car anyway, and remember it’s a ‘practical’ Ferrari.
Very little body roll
Shmee’s friends notice that there is actually very little body roll, despite the size of the car and the weight of four people on board. At the end of the lap, Shmee150 and his friends all said how fun the lap was, and only one car passed them during the race! And this car, a BMW, didn’t start. The GTC4Lusso felt absolutely amazing on the circuit, way better than Shmee expected it to feel. And we certainly can’t help but wish we were inside that Ferrari on that lap. And it made a really glorious sound, howling around the Nürburgring.
