Ferrari California 30

Having enjoyed worldwide success throughout its career, the new evolution of the Ferrari California is characterised by the number 30. That’s 30 as in the fact that it is 30 kilos lighter and 30 horse power more powerful.

The California’s V8 now punches out a maximum of 490 hp with maximum torque climbing to 505 Nm at 5000 rpm, thanks to new exhaust manifolds and engine mapping. Its torque curve has also been modified and is higher across the engine’s generous rev range too.

Cutting-edge aluminium fabrication techniques and construction technologies used by the Scaglietti Centre of Excellence in the manufacture of the California’s chassis, have also led to an overall reduction of 30 kg in the car’s weight without impinging in any way on its structural rigidity or performance.

The abovementioned factors have also directly benefited the Ferrari’s California’s performance, reducing its 0-100 km/acceleration time to 3.8 seconds. This heightens its sporty feel without detracting from the character of a car that has won universal acclaim for its seamless melding of performance and the exceptional versatility resulting from its retractable hard top (RHT) and 2+ configuration.

For clients in search of a more dynamic yet still not overly extreme driving experience, Ferrari has now also introduced the optional Handling Speciale package which features modifications to both the car’s running gear and set-up that reduce body roll and ensure prompter response to driver inputs.

The package includes magnetorheological dampers controlled by a faster ECU (-50% response time) with a proprietary Ferrari algorithm. The suspension springs are also stiffer for more precise control without impinging on comfort. Lastly, higher corner entry speeds and less steering wheel activity are guaranteed by a new steering box with a lower reduction ratio (-10%).
