Click above for a high-res gallery of the Ferrari California

As you read this, journalists in Europe are getting their first taste of the Ferrari California, flogging the new coupe/convertible through the rolling hills of Italy, and periodically stopping to snack on shaved white truffles and sip Brunello di Montalcino. Jealous? We are. But rest assured our time will come. If it doesn't, then at least we know what we'll have to remove from our tanking 401k to get a California of our own... in Europe.

Evo is reporting that the Ferrari California will set back our friends abroad £143,000, placing it right in between the F430 coupe and spider. To put that into a U.S.-dollar perspective, the F430 coupe costs around $185,000 in the States, while the drop-top F430 is priced somewhere north of $210,000.

We'll have to wait to see how the 460-hp California fares in the first round of reviews, but in the meantime, start saving your pennies and get in line.

      OMG, that's so cheap for a Ferrari. I can buy one and with the money left over buy a Mustang.

      The new Chevy Corvette ZR1 cost about 200,000 pounds in the UK. Wow! A Ferrari that's actually cheaper than a Vette, at least in the UK. Either way, I like both but if I was to choose between the two I would obviously take the new ZR1.

      gbp143K = $250,000 ... what ever happened to this being the 'budget' ferrari???????

        When you see the price for the F430 replacement, you'll understand that this is cheap. You can't get a Scuderia for less than $300K now.

      that's expensive for an s2000

        Considering they have nothing in common that's a really bad comparison.

      It seems that the f430 coupe is still the best value that Ferrari has to offer!
      • 6 Years Ago
      I think you have the wrong currency. 143 thousand pounds is significantly more than the price of an F430.

      California was confirmed AU$450,000 here in Australia....

      I don't really know, but pricing this above the F430 seems like a mistake to me though. I had expected this to be the cheapest Ferrari, but as it stands the F430 seems like a much better proposition.

      With today's exchange rates this is more like $245,000.

      Sure that may seem "cheap" for a GT Ferrari, but that is still rather expensive.

      Maybe because we are Americans and the auto industry treats us nicer than other countries in terms of price, it will "only" be $200k.
