The GTC4Lusso T is a Ferrari you really could drive every day

Ars Technica - 22 min 41 sec ago

Jonathan Gitlin

Spending a few days with a Ferrari is a treat, even if you get to drive as diverse an array of vehicles as we do here at Ars. As a small manufacturer with perhaps the best brand recognition in the auto industry, Ferrari doesn't really need to lend journalists its cars to sell them. And with a small press fleet and a big country to cover, the opportunity to drive one therefore remains rare. So it's perhaps not surprising that having recently scheduled such a loan, it's something I still look forward to immensely. That was certainly the case for this car, the $256,000 Ferrari GTC4Lusso T.

The new vehicle is the replacement for the Ferrari FF, and the prospect of four days with a Lusso T offered a chance to see how the legendary Italian automaker evolves and iterates its ideas. Ferrari's goal with the Lusso T was to build on the success of the FF, which sold well by the standards of four-seat Ferraris. The car maker wanted to create something that was both "sporty and versatile, as well as perfect for driving on a daily basis."

2018’s “Board Game of the Year” award goes to… Azul!

This past weekend, we looked at the shortlisted nominees for the Spiel des Jahres, board gaming's biggest annual award. This morning at a press conference in Berlin, the awards—complete with large wooden pawns for the winners—were handed out.

The main award, which traditionally goes to a lighter, family-style game, went to Azul, a gorgeous tile-laying game from designer Michael Kiesling. A second award for slightly more complex titles (the "Kennerspiel des Jahres") went to Die Quacksalber von Quedlinburg, Wolfgang Warsch's press-your-luck game about building dubious potions with ingredients drawn blindly from a bag. Both Kiesling and Warsch had multiple nominations on the two award shortlists; in the end, each designer went home with one of the coveted pawns.

Azul is one of those games that's so simple and elegant in its mechanics yet deep enough in its play that it feels like a "new classic." The Spiel des Jahres jury praised its "wonderful aesthetics," the quality of its bakelite game pieces, and the way "author Michael Kiesling managed to give a simple selection mechanism so much depth that it is almost endlessly replayable." (At least, that's what was said according to my translation, with help from Google Translate.) Unlike many modern boardgames, Azul is already widely available... and at a reasonable price of $35 or so. A sequel, about building stained glass windows, has already been announced.
