Can you really call a £200,000 V8 like the Ferrari GTC4 Lusso T an everyday, entry-level car? Whatever, we're going to do it anyway: the GTC4 Lusso is Ferrari's most usable car, after all.

It has four-seats, breadvan-style bodywork with a reasonable boot beneath it - it even has split-fold rear seats.

The original variant had four-wheel drive and a V12 engine, but Ferrari has since introduced this turbocharged 3.9-litre V8 model at the 'bottom' of the range. It's rear-drive only, but still has in excess of 600bhp and a price you can take to well in excess of a quarter of a million pounds with some deftly judged options.

Just how usable is this car, then? Sure, it'll look dramatic and go very fast (0-62mph in 3.5sec) in the right conditions, but what if you choose crummy roads in crummy conditions in the middle of a crummy English winter? It says GT in the name: can it GT in real life?

One wonders whether the test drivers ever drove the car in the winter, and if so, did they not think to mention to the engineers that they couldn't see out of the rear window? I can't imagine that it was an issue of not having the budget to develop a wash-wipe system....

Who wouldn't prefer one of those to this?

A rear wiper is actually available as an option.

A non cost option at that! Not sure if it has wash function tho
