First showcased at the Paris Motor Show in 2008, the Ferrari California went into production that same year, which continued on into a second generation of models until it was succeeded by their Portofino model in 2018. It is the original 2008 model we have available to book for driving experience days across the UK here at TrackDays.
Resurrecting the California name which some of their iconic models of the 50s and 60s were christened as, the California is a two door, hard top convertible GT sports car, based on a front mid-mounted, rear wheel drive, with a wheelbase of 105.1 inches, offering impeccable handling and steering out on the track.
The power of this smaller but nonetheless mighty supercar in the Ferrari fleet is courtesy of its thrumming 4.3 litre V8 engine, which powers out 453 bhp. It can cruise impressively from 0 - 60 mph in 3.9 seconds and 0 - 100 mph in 8.6 seconds, and is capable of top speeds of 193 mph.
