The Ferrari California is a grand touring sports car which is a 2+2 with a hardtop convertible configuration, powered by a front-mid mounted naturally aspirated 4.3 litre, V8 engine with 453bhp. The California, reviving the name used for the 1950’s 250 GT Spyder California, was launched at the 2008 Paris Motor Show and represented a number of firsts for Ferrari; the first front engined Ferrari with a V8, multi-link rear suspension, seven speed dual clutch transmission and the first Ferrari with a folding metal roof, making life so much easier for the user/owner. Its top speed of 193mph and acceleration from 0-62mph in under four seconds, puts it in the supercar performance bracket and it is still in this league eight years on. A Ferrari which offers their usual sports car thrills and excitement but with the practicality of a grand tourer.
