About Ferrari California

The Ferrari California is a 2-door 2+2 convertible GT that debuted at the 2008 Paris Motor Show. It's not the first time when Ferrari adorns its car with the 'California' badge. The name was first used for the late-1950s Ferrari 250 GT, however it hadn't been until 2008 when it was used once again for the all-new convertible. The Ferrari California features a lot of firsts for Ferrari such as folding metal roof, direct-injected engine, front-mounted V8, and a 7-speed dual clutch transmission. The Ferrari California parts and the hard-top convertible itself are manufactured at the Maranello factory. Every day, 27 vehicles leave the assembly line, which means that yearly Ferrari manufactures around 6,000 convertibles. So far the GT is available as a convertible with a folding hard top only. The car is 179.6'' long, 74.9'' wide, and 51.5'' high, and it measures 105.1'' in the wheelbase. The curb-weight reaches 3,800 lb, however in 2012 Ferrari announced a facelift for the model, and the list of upgrades included weight loss and new Ferrari California parts.

The 2009 Ferrari California is powered by a front-mid mounted direct injection 4.3 L V8 delivering 454 hp and reaching 358 lb ft of torque at 5,000 rpm. Its engine is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automated manual transmission, which is the only available option. The 2009 California sprints from 0 to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds and reaches the top speed of 193 mph. For the 2011 model year, Ferrari added a new HELE system (High Emotion Low Emissions) to make the California greener without sacrificing performance. The system includes an automatic start/stop feature, intelligent engine fan control, a variable fuel pump, and an adaptive transmission shift programming. A revised version of the California was introduced at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. The 2013 California is 66 pounds lighter, it delivers more power (up to 490 hp VS 460 hp of the 2009 model) and torque (up to 373 lb ft) from the engine, and all due to the Handling Special Package and new Ferrari parts. The package includes computer controlled Magnetorheological dampers, which are 50 per cent faster, stiffer springs, and a new steering box with a 10% quicker ratio.

The California is one of the most aerodynamic Ferrari's ever manufactured by the Maranello team. To achieve a Cd of 0.32, the company's engineers spent over 1,000 hours in the wind tunnel with a one-third-scale model of the grand tourer trying to optimize its aerodynamics. Even though the car is not that lightweight, Ferrari did its best to ensure proper weight distribution (47:53). The highlight of the Ferrari California is its retractable hard top, which requires 14 seconds to transform the GT from a comfortable coupe into a fully open convertible. The company branded the California as a female car, which is why the focus was shifted from performance to comfort and luxury. The list of standard Ferrari California accessories and parts includes 19'' wheels, ceramic-carbon Brembo brakes, bi-xenon headlights, full leather interior (on the dash as well), fold-down rear seat, the manettino steering wheel-mounted control knob, hard-drive navigation system, a trip computer, Bluetooth and a CD/MP3 player sound system with a 6.5'' touchscreen display. Antilock disc brakes, front side airbags and stability and traction control all come standard on the Ferrari California as well. The available options are 20'' wheels, run-flat tires, adjustable suspension, rearview camera, front parking sensors, cruise control, carbon-fiber aerodynamic enhancements, full-power seats, an upgraded sound system and an iPod interface.

The Ferrari California is a totally new breed of Prancing Horse. In many ways, it is a ground-braking vehicle for the company. It is the first Ferrari to have a retractable hard top, the first direct-injected V-8 Maranello has ever offered, as well as the first to be equipped with a seven-speed dual clutch transmission produced by Ferrari. This vehicle of the 21st century is designed as much for luxury and comfort as for performance and speed. All the accessories and equipment, as well as the optimized aerodynamics, turn the Ferrari California into an enjoyable car that delivers pure driving pleasure.

A spoiler is intended to control the way the air streaming over the car is affecting the rear of the vehicle. Spoilers cause drag, and actually slow the car down or make it unstable, if not properly designed. A correctly designed spoiler can counteract the lifting forces that most cars experience when speeds get high, and keep the car on the road.
