Ferrari boss loves California

Time 9:19 pm, May 29, 2008


THESE are the first pictures of Ferrari’s new California with its roof up. Released today, the images show the stunning new GT’s folding roof in place.


The pictures have been released at the same time as Ferrari chief Luca di Montezemolo got his first drive of the new car.


After a few laps at Ferrari’s Fiorano test track, he said: ‘I am very satisfied indeed with the work that the women and men of Ferrari have done.


‘The California is an extraordinary car and I was delighted with the performance, comfort and driving pleasure it delivered. The California is, like all of our models, the epitome of cutting-edge innovation. Its gearbox, suspensions and chassis are the most advanced possible.


‘This is the first dual-purpose Spider/Coupé with a retractable hard top that closes in just 14 seconds. Despite its extraordinary performance, the California 2+ is also exceptionally easy to drive and has a space behind the front seats that makes it supremely flexible in terms of usage.’
