What if somebody told you that you could have the best of everything in a Ferrari all in one car. What if you could have the beautiful styling, power, luxury, a convertible for those summer days, room to seat 4, all in one vehicle. The answer is simple. You get the Ferrari California. The Ferrari California is Ferrari’s first car that has a retractable hard top roof. The main goal for Ferrari was to make the California a high speed cruising grand touring car. Well, they did a great job. The beautiful lines of the Ferrari California hinder the old design of the Ferrari 250 GT. The hardtop roof when up makes the car look like a true coupe and continues the lines of the of California when it is down as well. The Ferrari California is the first Ferrari to feature a front mounted V8 engine unlike the V12’s it usually puts in there. The 4.3 liter V8 is similar to the Ferrari F430’s V8. It make 453hp and 358 ft/lbs of torque. These performance specs will propel the Ferrari California to 60 in under 4 seconds and will go on to do the quarter mile in 12.3 seconds. For a pretty big and heavy car, those are some really impressive performance specs. One attribute that helps the Ferrari California attain such impressive performance figures is that fact that is comes with a seven speed dual clutch transmission that is similar to the Porsche’s PDK system. The transmission built by Getrag, gives the ability for the Ferrari to shift quicker than you can blink your eye. Another goal for Ferrari was to make the California as reliable as possible. With the introduction of the dual clutch transmission as well as refining the engineering of the car, they have certainly attained this goal. The Ferrari California is a car that you can drive every day without having to worry about it breaking on you or catching fire like Ferrari’s are known to do. With this in mind the interior of the Ferrari, since you will be spending a good amount of time in there, is elegantly crafted and could give a Bentley a run for its money. The seats are all hand stitched and the entire dash is covered with thick rich leather with accents of carbon fiver panels hear and there. It is truly a beautiful place to be in and needs to be experienced for yourself. The Ferrari California is an all around blend of the best that Ferrari offers. The power, the luxury, the styling, and the soul that Ferrari carries is all harmonically balanced in the Ferrari California.
