Among many tremendous race cars and road cars that Ferrari has gifted the automotive world, the Ferrari California paved its way to being a landmark car for Ferrari by being the first of its kind in many ways. Debuting in 2008 at the Paris Motor Show, it was the first Ferrari to have a hardtop convertible with a folding metal roof. It's also the first front-mid engine Ferrari with a V8 engine, while its siblings had the engine behind the cabin. Having a Direct petrol injection, 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, and multi-link rear suspension are more firsts that came alongside the engine. This fine example of the 2012 Ferrari California Convertible is located in Florida with an original MSRP of $240,462. With recent maintenance and servicing done by the dealer, it has just 24300 on the clock and offers a host of optional extras.
The 2012 Ferrari California Convertible is chalked up to have all right curves to turn heads. This stunning exterior is adorned in Grigio Titanio Metallic paint, bi-xenon headlights, and standard 19-inch silver wheels. The optional extras add to its beauty with yellow brake calipers and 'Scuderia Ferrari' shields. The dark blue interior is fitted with an abundance of extras, including electrically operated Daytona style seats, Daytona style colored seat belts, and color upon request for DSH4. The optional extras cloak the passengers within luxury by sporting leather A-pillars, a leather central tunnel, and an armrest on the tunnel in leather. In addition to that, this car features $11,392 worth of other optional extras. Standard features in the cabin include dual-zone climate control, a touch screen, satellite radio, and Bluetooth. Front and rear parking sensors and in/out Electric mirrors with HomeLink will also come in handy.
Even with the innovative changes, Ferrari hadn't lost their art of power and handling. The 2012 Ferrari California Convertible is powered by a 4.3L V8 mated to an automatic manual DCT dual-clutch 7-speed gearbox. Producing 453 horsepower and 357 pound-feet of torque, Ferrari claims the California will sprint from 0 to 60 within 4 seconds and can hit a top speed of 193pmh. Optional extras spread to the mechanicals as well with CCM—carbon ceramic brakes and Magneride dual-mode suspension.
