Ferrari Portofino breaks cover

Ferrari Portofino breaks coverFerrari has officially revealed the replacement for its entry level California T. The all-new supercar is christened as Portofino, and its being positioned as a drop-top Grand Tourer. Ferrari claims that with Portofino, it has achieved a perfect combination of sportiness, elegance and on-board comfort.

Brandishing an uprated version of the California T’s 3.9-litre V8 turbo engine – the same one that took top honours in the International Engine of the Year awards for the last two years –  Ferrari’s latest drop-top is capable of sprinting from 0-100km/h in just 3.5 seconds and onto a hair-ruffling maximum speed in excess of 320km/h, says Ferrari.

Following the California’s pioneering layout, the Portofino is again a 2+2 coupe-convertible deploying a folding hard top and a twin-clutch transmission. It’s a Ferrari with a very specific purpose, capturing conquest buyers new to the brand – and a higher proportion of women than for its sports cars.

Also new in the Ferrari Portofino is Ferrari’s third generation electronic rear differential (E-Diff3), which is integrated with F1-Trac, Ferrari’s traction control system, and a new electrically assisted power steering. This allowed engineers to reduce the steering ratio, making it more responsive without compromising on stability. The magnetorheological damping system (SCM-E) has been updated too, for better dynamic ability and improved ride quality.
