The Ferrari California is a convertible grand tourer with a retractable hard-top. It represents several firsts for Ferrari: first front engined Ferrari with a V8, first to feature a 7-speed dual clutch transmission, first with a folding metal roof, first with multi-link rear suspension, and the first with direct injection. This Italian exotic is available as a 4-seat convertible with a power folding hard top. The standard 453-horsepower 4.3-liter V8 engine sends power through 7-speed dual clutch transmission with F1-style steering column-mounted shift paddles that allow for extremely quick gear changes. A six-speed manual transmission is available. Brembo brakes featuring carbon-ceramic material discs are standard. Optional magnetic fluid-filled shock absorbers react instantly to road conditions and driver inputs. A switch on the steering wheel, called a manettino, integrates suspension, traction control, stability control and shifter systems and allows the driver to choose the optimum setting for current conditions. The standard CD/MP3/DVD stereo features a 30-gigabyte hard drive, navigaton system, and Bluetooth wireless connectivity. Options include carbon fiber interior trim, reverse camera, and front and rear parking sensors. The Ferrari California was all-new for 2010 and is carried over for 2011.
