Ferrari launched their new model the California at the 2008 Paris Motor Show. This new two door "2+2" hard top convertible grand touring sports car was aimed to fill a gap in their product range that had existed since the end of 246 Dino production in 1974. The California offers a sensible alternative to a Mercedes SL55 AMG or similar and is Ferraris entry level model.
Powered by 4.3 litre V8 producing 450 hp The California has a top speed 193 mph and can accelerate from zero to 62 mph under 4 seconds. The legendary name, "California" harks back to the iconic late-1950s Ferrari 250 GT .Although 180 kilograms heavier and 30 hp less powerful than the mid-engined F430, the California reaches 60 mph in the same time as the F430 thanks to its dual-clutch transmission, a first for Ferrari. Ferrari spent over 1,000 hours in the wind tunnel with a one-third-scale model of the California perfecting its aerodynamics. With the top up, the California has a drag coefficient of 0.32, making it the most aerodynamic Ferrari ever made.
