The beautiful new Ferrari Portofino that can fly from 0-100km/h in 3.5 seconds. With a V8 GT under the hood It’s set to dominate the market.
Referencing one of Italy’s most beautiful towns, this drop-top car beams elegance, sportiness and understated luxury. The colour of the car has been dedicated to this beautiful town: Rosso Portofino. The Ferrari Portofino is the most powerful convertible to combine the advantages of a retractable hard top, a roomy boot and generous cockpit space plus. The car also has 2 small rear seats for short journey’s.
Set to replace the California range the Portofino’s all-new chassis features a significant weight saving over the California T it replaces. All the chassis and body-in-white components have been redesigned with a consequent reduction in weight despite an increase in torsional rigidity.
Beauty, Elegance and Quality
The renowned Ferrari V8 turbo. Part of the engine family that was nominated International Engine of the Year in both 2016 and 2017. The Portofino now punches out 40 cv more than the California T’s power unit thanks to the adoption of new components and specific calibration of the engine management software. The characteristic Ferrari V8 soundtrack has also been further enhanced and can be fully appreciated, particularly in top-down driving.
Close collaboration between the Aerodynamics department and Ferrari Design has ensured maximum efficiency in the development of the surface treatment. Starting with the front, the form of the large radiator grille opening, that stretches from edge to edge of the carefully contoured nose, is underscored by a new full-LED headlight assembly with a more horizontal shape. The outside edge of the headlight hides an innovative air intake. Vents going into the front wheel arch and exits along the flank reduce drag.
I gaze at this car with awe and admiration. That stitching alone looks hand crafted by Middle Earth style otherworldy craftsmanship. In conclusion the Ferrari Portofino is a beautiful addition to the Ferrari collection.
The Ferrari Portofino will make its world debut at the Frankfurt International Motor Show in September.
