Released in 2017 and named after the picturesque fishing village located on the Italian Riviera, the Portofino was released as the much-anticipated replacement for the California that was produced from 2008 until 2014, when the California T was released and produced until 2017.
Sitting on a completely new chassis, the Portofino is not just a facelifted and rebadged California but instead has been redesigned from the ground up. Weighing in 80 kg lighter than the California and yet is more powerful with a heavily revised version of the 3.9 litre twin-turbo V8 now producing 600 bhp, a staggering increase of almost 150 bhp. This weight reduction and added power makes the Portofino capable of dashing to 62mph in just 3.5 seconds up to a top speed just under 200 mph.
The hardtop roof can be raised or lowered at up to 30 mph taking just 14 seconds. Once the roof is down the Portofino gives a comfortable ride with 30% less air flow entering the cabin in comparison with the California, the climate control system has also undergone a thorough redesign to offer more cooling and heating when needed with the roof down.
This example was supplied new on the 18th of July 2019 to its first owner who was based in Bristol. It is clear that no expense was spared when this example was ordered new, with a wealth of carbon fibre found on both the interior and exterior of the car that one would not typically find on a Portofino. Additionally, the exterior paint, Rosso Magma, a special range triple-layer paint, would have cost nearly £20,000 at the time of ordering. The complete option list can be found below.
Having covered just 11,200 miles in its life, the car has been maintained to schedule by Meridien Modena, who serviced the car in 2020, 2021, 2022, and recently in June of 2023. In light of this, the car is covered by Ferrari’s 7-year servicing plan, which is still valid for a further three services free of charge with Ferrari. For complete peace of mind, this example is covered by Ferrari’s ‘Power Warranty’ until the 18th of October 2024.
The car would stay with its first owner holding the registration ‘2 TAD’ until November of 2021, when it passed hands to its second keeper who kept the car for just 5 months, passing to the third keeper, who used it as a ‘gap car’ until his Ferrari on order from the factory arrived, subsequently passing to the current owner in August of 2022 supplied via the supplying and servicing dealership, Meridien Modena.
The car also benefits from front-end PPF, which was recently installed with a ceramic coating being applied directly after.
