La Ferrari, 488 and the 812 superfast are all breathtaking machines which are the living proof of how Ferrari is changing the performance game everyday. Not just that, but they are making it harder on the competitors to keep up. But what if you want to drive a Ferrari that is less hardcore with the roof down and cruise on the Corniche on Friday mornings with smooth power delivery. The GT is the perfect example, and yet you still have around 600 ponies at your disposal.
Ferrari Portofino is taking over from its predecessor the California T, but this one is more mature, lighter, and powerful. Why? Here is couple technical terms that will leave you with a big smile!
Twin-turbo, 3.9L V8 develops 600 horsepower and 651 lb·ft of torque, Rear wheel drive, Electric power steering, 3rd generation electronic differential, electronic suspension control system, 7-speed F1 dual-clutch transmission and a maximum speed of 320 km/h.
Had enough? As we can see Ferrari isn't taking any chances even with its 'baby' Ferrari as they used to call the California. We think we can now stop calling it a 'baby' Ferrari and welcome the new name of this amazing GT masterpiece; the Portofino.
Lets not forget the interior, this is one interior that will take your eyes off the road because it is so beautiful. The seats are a work of perfection, made for comfort in the long drives, as a GT should have, but we will confirm that when we test it. The passanger information screen and the high-end quality is in every nook and corner. We experience in the Ferrari configurator, every inch of this car is configurable.
