The new version of the Ferrari California will be officially unveiled to the world at the Geneva Motor Show early next month. The production has already commenced, and the new version will be lighter by 30 kg and more powerful by 30 CV.
With a renewed exhaust manifolds and engine mapping, the Ferrari California’s GDI V8 now delivers 490 hp with maximum torque of 505 Nm at 5,000 rpm to achieve a 0-100 km/acceleration in 3.8 seconds.
Cutting-edge aluminium fabrication techniques and construction technologies used by the Scaglietti Centre of Excellence have led to an overall reduction in weight while ensuring the versatile character and performance of the 2+ seater Ferrari with a retractable top are still top-class.
An optional Handling Speciale package has been developed which encompasses modifications to the suspension set-up that minimise body roll and make the car even more responsive to driver inputs. The package also features stiffer springs for more precise body control combined with a comfortable ride. The California benefits from faster turn-in with smaller steering wheel angles thanks to a new steering box with a 10 per cent quicker steering ratio.
The technical features are matched by a new, even more extensive choice of colours including two-tone finishes, three-layer paint technology and modern re-interpretations of classic colour schemes which increase the exclusive personalisation possibilities even further. In addition, the Grand Tourer benefits from the free seven-year standard maintenance programme.
