Safety

The Ferrari California's Brembo brakes feature carbon-ceramic material discs as standard to guarantee superbly efficient braking.

Integral roll-bars are also fitted as standard, with an intelligent safety control unit which detects if the car begins to roll and deploys the roll-bars in a breathtakingly fast 190 microseconds.

Design

The muscular, flowing lines of the Ferrari California produce a classic, sculpted chassis, with a long bonnet and strong, raked sides lifting to trace the outline of the classic Ferrari rear bumper. The nose has a teardrop lighting cluster and slatted traditional grille, while the air vents on the bonnet and at the sides echo distinctive features of the 1957 Ferrari California 250. The 340-litre boot offers plenty of space for two large and two small suitcases or, with the seat folded, two golf bags, skis or snowboards. There is even the option to have a rear seating area with two seats and ISOFIX attachments to accommodate children, should you prefer.Inside, you'll find Ferrari's signature style is echoed in the finest leather upholstery and trim with subtle retro theming.

Technology

With a front-mid mounted, direct-injection 4.3-litre V8 engine and seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox, the Ferrari California achieves 0-62mph in 3.8 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 194mph. F1-Trac traction control offers improved cornering and acceleration and the car generates an impressive 490bhp.

Multilink rear suspension further enhances the comfort level and absorbs impact while lowering vibration and acoustic levels. The in-car infotainment system is controlled via a 6.5-inch touchscreen and its intuitive controls offer maximum ease of use.
