Finished in Nero Daytona Black with Red leather upholstery, this smart California is warranted to have covered some 39,000 miles from new. Boasting nine stamps in its service book the most recent of which was added on 26th March 2020 at 39,214 miles, the 2+2-seater has been fitted with more durable steel brakes. A set of Carbon Ceramic Discs come with the car and their current non-installation has resulted in a ‘CCB’ warning light illuminating on the dashboard. The paint finish to the nearside door mirror has weathered but the front bumper / nose are less affected by stone chips than one might expect (the Ferrari wore a protective film until recently). Strikingly hued, this appealing Ferrari is offered for sale with book pack and MOT certificate valid until October 2020.

Model Background:

Introduced at the Paris Salon in 2008, the Ferrari California had been conceived as a grand tourer rather than an out-and-out sports car. Intended to appeal to those who might otherwise opt for a Bentley, Aston Martin or Mercedes-Benz, it was the Maranello marque's first design to feature the following: a front-mounted V8 engine, two-piece folding metal roof, dual clutch seven-speed transmission, direct fuel injection and multi-link rear suspension. Styled by Pininfarina and subject to over 1,000 hours of wind tunnel testing, the newcomer utilised aluminium for both its chassis and bodywork construction. Related to that in the F430, its 4297cc 'quad cam', 32-valve V8 developed some 453bhp and 358lbft of torque and was allied to the aforementioned dual clutch seven-speed transmission as standard (though, Ferrari would fit a six-speed manual to special order). Despite being among the least expensive models in the range, the California boasted carbon ceramic disc brakes and the traction control system from the marque's flagship 599. Plus it could still sprint from 0-60mph in 3.9 seconds and onto 193mph. Less demanding to drive than its siblings and therefore more enjoyable during everyday 'real world' motoring, the notional 2+2-seater more than fulfilled its brief of attracting new customers to the Ferrari fold.
