Ferrari California: official pictures

  • California name confirmed
  • First official pictures
  • Greenest Ferrari yet
These are the first official pictures of Ferrari's newest model – and it has been confirmed that it will be called the California.

The California has a folding metal hard top and is powered by a 453bhp 4.3-litre V8 engine that Ferrari says will take the car from 0-62mph in less than four seconds. The car will feature a seven-speed semi-automatic gearbox and be rear-wheel-drive.

The engine is also Ferrari's cleanest yet, although kaftan-clad hippies won't be hugging the gates at Maranello, as it still emits 310g/km of carbon dioxide.

The seating arrangement is described a '2+', which means it will offer a little more practicality than a traditional two-seater.

Performance ceramic brakes will be fitted as standard, as will traction control, which has been developed from the F430’s “F1-Trac” system.

The car will be officially unveiled at the Paris motor show in October.

Prices haven’t been announced, but are expected to be around £150,000.
