Inspired by the unbelievable, vintage Ferrari 250 GT California, the modern-day California has been out for several years now.
Now that it is in its mid-life period, it has received a well-timed update.
Now with 490 horsepower coming from its 4.3-liter V8 motor, this puppy screams when the revs start climbing. Zero to 60 comes in a very fast 3.8 seconds
Where the 2013 California should impress you is that it's been on a bit of a diet these past couple of years. 70 pounds have been whisked away from its former self.
All and all it sounds good on paper; however, has its look and updated stats impress you enough to fall in LOVE or RUN for the hills?
"Lighter and more powerful" are the key words describing the Ferrari California 2012 as, hot on the heels of its Geneva debut, it is presented to the international motoring media converging on Maranello to put it through its paces along the same routes as the Prancing Horse test-drivers and engineers that developed it.
