2010 Ferrari California Review

Grand touring convertible in the grandest style

Reviewed by Automotive on

In a Nutshell
The 2010 Ferrari California is a convertible super sports car with a retractable hardtop, a first for the carmaker. Sporting a front-mounted F430-based 4.3-liter V-8 engine with direct injection, the Ferrari California is coupled to a seven-speed dual clutch automatic transmission.

A gorgeous car for open-air drives, the Ferrari California delivers impeccable power and performance. From its roaring front-mounted V-8 engine to its near-perfect dual-clutch seven-speed to its gorgeous, comfortable cabin, the Ferrari California is living the dream. Fuel economy is in the 13 mpg city / 19 mpg highway range, but who cares?
