details

The Ferrari California (Type F149) is a grand touring, high performance sports car created by the Italian automobile manufacturer Ferrari. It is a two-door 2+2 hard top convertible. When originally unveiled in 2008, the California was powered by a front-mid mounted, rear wheel drive, naturally aspirated 4. 3-litre V8. The car revives the name used on the late-1950s Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder and the 1960s 365 California. The modern California (2008) was originally introduced as an entry level model however, it included many new design innovations from Ferrari. The original base price of the California was similar to the base price of the F430, the company’s V8 flagship sports car at the time of its introduction. In 2018, the California was succeeded by the Portofino.

The California represented a radical new design by Pininfarina S. p. A. and was developed under the oversight of Ken Okuyama. The model was primarily intended to attract new Ferrari owners. The car’s grand touring personality was emphasized with a slightly higher ride height compared to its more aggressive siblings. The chassis was designed and manufactured by Ferrari division Carrozzeria Scagliettii. Overall, it is considered a landmark car for Ferrari in that it represents a number of concepts being used for the first time in their road cars:

• The first front engined Ferrari with a V8

• The first to feature a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission

• The first hard top convertible with a folding metal roof

• The first with multi-link rear suspension

• The first with direct petrol injection

The Ferrari-Maserati Type F136IB engine displaces 4, 297 cubic centimetres (262. 2 cubic inches), and used a petrol direct injection system produced by Bosch. It generates a maximum power output of 338 kW (460 PS; 453 hp) at 7, 750 rpm; its maximum torque produced is 485 N?m (358 lbf?ft) at 5, 000 rpm. The resulting 79 kW (106 hp) per litre of engine displacement is extremely high for a naturally aspirated engine, as other manufacturers have used forced induction to reach similar power levels. The engine makes use of a wet sump designed lubrication system. The engine’s sound – a feature that distinguishes every Ferrari – was engineered to enhance the vehicle’s driving experience both with the top open and closed.

The original California had a top speed of 193 mph and it could accelerate from 0–100 km/ h (0–62 mph) in four seconds.[1] Although that model was 180 kilograms (397 lb) heavier and 22 kW (30 PS; 30 hp) less powerful than the mid-engined F430, the California reached 97 km/ h (60 mph) in the same time as the F430 due to the dual-clutch transmission.

The California was manufactured in a purpose built facility that was constructed adjacent to the existing factory at Maranello. The new facility was part of Ferrari’s Formula Uomo programme that started in 1997 to improve production, safety and employee happiness.[2] Overall, the Ferrari production line(s) make a total of about 27 cars per day, or between 6, 000 and 8, 000 cars per year.

Production of the California amounted to about 8, 000 units spanning between 2008 and 2012. 1, 219 cars were manufactured in calendar year 2013; 1, 645 in calendar year 2014; and 2, 638 in calendar year 2015. 2016 saw production of 2, 247 vehicles, and about 1, 600 were made in 2017. Total production of all variants was about 17, 300 vehicles.

Throughout the modern California’s history (2008 to 2017), only 3 cars were built with manual transmission, including one order from the UK.

The updated engine continued with the naturally aspirated Ferrari-Maserati type F136 family. Made entirely of aluminium, the new F136IH retained many of the original features but generated a maximum power output of 360 kW (489 PS; 483 hp) at 7, 750 rpm; its maximum torque produced is 505 Nm (372 ft-lbs) at 5, 000 rpm. 75% of which is available at 2, 250 rpm.

The California 30 can be differentiated from the base California by the VIN. In the 30 variant, the VIN’s sixth digit (in North America) is “T” representing the F136IH engine. In the base model, the VIN’s sixth digit (again in North America) is “L” representing the earlier generation F136IB engine.
