The 2008 Paris Motor Show saw Ferrari revive a name from the 1950’s and the new California was launched. Powered by a naturally aspirated 4.3 litre, V8 engine with 453bhp, the California is a grand touring, 2 + 2 sports car. This new car 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. With a stated top speed of 193mph and acceleration that sees the car go from 0-62mph in under four seconds, the California has what can only be described as supercar performance. The California is a Ferrari that offers the thrill of a sports car with the practicality of a grand tourer.
Originally registered on 29th May 2009, this Ferrari is offered in the classic combination of Rosso Scuderia Red with Crema interior. This California benefits from an impressive specification which includes heated electric seats, red brake calipers and cruise control. With only one previous keeper and having covered only 10,682 miles from new, it is clear that this has been a very well looked after example. The original book pack is present as is a V5C registration document together with a current MoT test certificate valid until 4th September 2020. A super stylish grand tourer.
