Ferrari California Review

Summary

Ferrari has become a sort of a household name when it comes to naming car manufacturers who produce absolutely amazing cars. Bringing together unmatchable design with unbeatable Italian technology, Ferrari has made its name on both - tracks as well as on roads. The Ferrari California is crowned a grand touring sports car that seeks to give the user maximum comfort and maximum performance in the same beautiful package. The new California series reuses the ‘California’ name after the Ferrari 250 GT from the 50s and the Ferrari 365 from the 60s. The perfect combination of performance and luxury, the Ferrari California is one of the best cars that Ferrari has ever built.

Exterior

To make a car that would be perfect for touring applications as well as give a sports car like performance, Ferrari had to build the design from scratch. Heavily utilizing aluminium alloys and carbon fibre to reduce weight while also increasing the strength of the outer shell, the exterior resembles the same sleek and beautiful exterior of any other Ferrari model. Aerodynamically accurate and visually very appealing, the Ferrari California sits right in the perfect spot of tourer meets sportback category. The Ferrari California also features a convertible top which is perfect for those lazy afternoon rides under the sun.

Interior

The Ferrari California gives the same luxurious sporty feel on the inside as it does on the outside. Featuring very heavy use of leather and high-grade plastics, the California does not differ from any other Ferrari model when it comes to the interiors. The driver seat is perhaps the most comfortable. The 2 rear seats feel a little cramped and is fit for only small children or short people. If you have previously driven any Ferrari model, the controls and the equipment will feel very similar and the learning slope will be a very short one. The California model uses the Turbo Performance Engineering (TBE) system that sits between the two air vents on the dashboard. Its function is to provide a digital display and touch-enable system to make use of the new engine to the fullest. Climate control, air bags and a host of other safety features come standard as in all Ferraris. All in all, the California succeeds in giving the Tourer/sportback feel completely and does not feel like it failed to do any of those correctly.

Engine and Transmission

The Ferrari California model comes equipped with a 4.3 L V8, Direct Fuel injected engine. The 4.3 L engine can produce a mindboggling maximum torque of 755 Nm at 4750 rpm in the 7th gear and a maximum power of 412 kW at 7500 rpm. It takes just 3.6 seconds for the California's engine to propel it from a 0 kmph to a 100 kmph. The top speed of this car is 314 kmph. The California features a F1 style, dual clutch 7 speed + reverse shift transmission system.

Performance and Handling

Italian cars and Ferrari most of all have been known for their spectacular performances throughout the years and the Ferrari California surely does not do any harm to that reputation whatsoever. The California features the 245/40 ZR 19” tyres on the front and the 285/40 ZR 19” tyres on the rear to maximize the handling capabilities of the car. The California also incorporates the Control for Stability and Traction (CST) with F1 TRAC systems to aid the driver by providing the correct amount of traction and driving stability. The 390 x 34 mm carbon ceramic braking system on the front and the 360 x 32 mm brakes of the same kind on the rear provide fast and accurate braking action of the vehicle, even at very high speeds. The 4.3 L v8 engine produces enough power and torque to accelerate the California from 0-100 kmph in 3.6 seconds only.

Braking System

The carbon ceramic braking system on the Ferrari California , which features 390 x 34 mm carbon-ceramic brakes on the front and 360 x 32 mm carbon-ceramic brakes on the rear, provide for great braking actions that can reduce the speeds linearly and very quickly.

Mileage

The 3855 cc Petrol - powered variant delivers a fuel economy of 8 kmpl in city and 10 kmpl on highways

Safety Features

The Ferrari California features the use of Anti-lock brakes with integrated ABS technology to sense if the wheel has suddenly stopped rotating under heavy stress and will modulate the pressure on the brakes to allow the tire to continue rotating and preventing imbalance. The Stability control system intelligently senses if the handling limits of the vehicle have been exceeded and proceeds to throttle the engine power accordingly to maintain accurate handling performance. Airbags on the front dashboard and the sides come standard on the California and are deployed in case there is a collision of the vehicle to prevent serious injuries to the occupants. The Pretension seatbelt system tightens the seatbelts of the occupants pre-collision to keep them upright in the best possible seating position. The security system that features intrusion detection and intrusion prevention system prevents the engine from being started in case there is an unauthorized person inside the cabin.

Verdict

While most people gave the older Ferrari California a pass because it seemed like a less powerful version of the Ferrari 458 with just a convertible top, the new Ferrari California will offer much more. If you have the money and you are looking for a car that will provide maximum luxury with an ability to have a sports car like speed, California is the way to go.

Competition

When it comes to cars of this price range, the competition is not severe in terms of the number of cars available, but in terms that each different car can provide a different experience than the other. The main competition that the Ferrari California faces is from the likes of Maserati GranTurismo, Porsche 911, BMW 6 series, Mercedes Benz SL class, Lamborghini Gallardo, Bentley continental GT, and Ferrari 612 Scaglietti.

  • Luxurious
  • Sports car like performance
