In 2008, Ferrari launched its first folding hard top model, which was then described as innovative, sporty and versatile. Four years on, the Ferrari California has since become a favourite among fans of the marque for its effortless blend of power and practicality.
2012's Ferrari California, now available in Singapore , sees an improvement from its predecessor -- the new California features a boost of engine power of 30hp to 490 hp, and a 30% lighter chassis. These enhancements allow the latest spider-coupé to achieve outstanding performance, making the 0 to 100km/h sprint in an impressive 3.8 seconds, over the previous model's 4.0 seconds.
A key asset of the California has always been its everyday usability. However, owners can now opt for a more dynamic yet not overtly extreme driving experience thanks to an optional Handling Speciale package, which minimizes body roll, making the car more responsive to its driver's inputs.
The 2012 Ferrari California can also be wrapped in an array of lively colours specially developed by the Ferrari Styling Center, including two-tone finishes , three-layer paint technology and modern re-interpretations of the car's classic colourways.
The 2012 Ferrari California is priced from S$758,000 (without COE) and is available at Ital Auto Pte Ltd, Leng kee Road, Singapore 159100, +65 6475 1118, www.italauto.com.sg .
