You have to admire the automotive scene in Germany. Despite its somewhat small geographic size, Bavaria seems to have more tuners per capita than just about any other nation in the world. We tend to count Anderson Germany among the best and brightest of that group, thanks largely to the company's work with various Ferrari products. The tuner has just finished tidying up the details on its latest project, and the final result is plenty mouthwatering. Anderson Germany started with a base Ferrari California, decided that plenty-fast wasn't swift enough, so it proceeded to yank a full 515 horsepower out of the 4.3-liter V8. We like these guys.
That extra 55 horsepower arrives courtesy of an ECU reflash and an all-new tri-mode stainless steel exhaust system. The pipes are built with a special valve that can be adjusted depending on how much of a menace to society you feel like at that particular moment. The company also bolted on a set of 21-inch wheels up front and 22-inch rollers out back and installed a new suspension control module that can allow the car to be lowered up to 1.3 inches. Anderson Germany isn't saying how much it would cost to convert a standard California into the beast you see above, but we're guessing it's not cheap. Hit the jump for the press release.

ANDERSON GERMANY is releasing a special model, which will win you over with its design and its horse power. The elite tuner from Düsseldorf has boosted the Ferrari California's 460 HP by 55 HP and has also ensured that it makes a spectacular impression optically. The increased performance is owed to software optimisation and a valve conrolled stainless steel exhaust system, which can be set to three different sound modes with a remote control.
For the ultra-wide lane, special light-weight wheels 21 and 22 inches in size have been installed. The multiple-part light metal rims are coated in a carbon film and the outer rim bedding is the colour of the car. Road contact is ensured with the powerful 9x21 inch and 11.5x22 inch light-weight metal rims equipped with high-performance tyres of size 255/30-21 and 315/25-22.
For a sporty street drive, ANDERSON GERMANY provides complete driving and coupled axles with a module, which is inbuilt and can be adjusted according to height. Thanks to the adjustable damper, the body can be lowered by 35mm or raised by 40mm.
With a bodykit made up of a carbon-finished front spoiler lip, side skirt wings, rear diffusor, rear mud guard, motor, side ventilation and and rear spoiler lip, the Ferrari California Edition shows once again its top performance and a very individual aesthetic. A dark tint on the panes and rear lights complete the total look.
ANDERSON GERMANY offers almost limitless possibilities for individual furnishing of the interior. The carbon interior package includes air vents, radio facing, centre consoles, door handles, rocker switches and steering wheel facing. Detail solutions you can only expect from a luxury sports car.
This sports car is encompassed by high-quality, love for detail and many other features that will make your ride in the California Edition exceptionally sporty and individual.
