“2011 Ferrari California”

The Ferrari California is a convertible grand tourer with a retractable hard-top. It represents several firsts for Ferrari: first front engined Ferrari with a V8, first to feature a 7-speed dual clutch transmission, first with a folding metal roof, first with multi-link rear suspension, and the first with direct injection.

This Italian exotic is available as a 4-seat convertible with a power folding hard top. The standard 453-horsepower 4.3-liter V8 engine sends power through 7-speed dual clutch transmission with F1-style steering column-mounted shift paddles that allow for extremely quick gear changes. A six-speed manual transmission is available. Brembo brakes featuring carbon-ceramic material discs are standard. Optional magnetic fluid-filled shock absorbers react instantly to road conditions and driver inputs.

A switch on the steering wheel, called a manettino, integrates suspension, traction control, stability control and shifter systems and allows the driver to choose the optimum setting for current conditions. The standard CD/MP3/DVD stereo features a 30-gigabyte hard drive, navigaton system, and Bluetooth wireless connectivity. Options include carbon fiber interior trim, reverse camera, and front and rear parking sensors.

  2. En verdad lo que más me gusta del Ferrari california es su motor y diseño exclusivo, sus llantas son un sueño, además de su estilo clásico y emblemático, también su interior forrado en cuero beige y sus costuras tan bien trabajadas son maravillosas, es sencillamente woooOOOO… personalmente me parece que evoca una elegancia deportiva como ningún otro… De hecho les voy a dejar un artículo fascinante que encontré, obvio si eres amante a los motores te va a encantar http://mundolujo.portalmundos.com/ferrari-california-el-mas-pequeno-de-la-familia/Abrazos!!!
