The Cars You Drive

Drive the most exotic cars in the world.

Ferrari California

The Ferrari California has the long, flowing lines, arched fenders, and curvaceous sides all complementing the classic roadster proportions. Inside, the California looks very much like its newer brethren, with a careful mix of leather, metal, and plastic laid out in Ferrari’s typically lush, yet purposeful fashion.

Powering the California is a potent 4.3-liter V-8 engine rated at 490 horsepower and 373 pound-feet of torque. Prior to 2013, the California was rated at 460 horsepower and 347 pound-feet of torque. Thanks to the additional power, the California now accelerates to 60 mph in just 3.8 seconds, and hits a top speed of 193 mph.

Handling is, as you’d expect of a Ferrari, quite impressive–at least up to about 9/10ths. Pushing the limits is not in the California’s repertoire, as it’s tuned for comfort and practicality more than track-ready feats of speed. Still, a Handling Speciale package is available for those who desire a bit more edge, and even at 9/10ths, the California is blazingly quick.
