Reviving the California name from the famous 250GT Spyder, the modern-day car had big shoes to fill and whilst maybe not fair to compare their price tags the stunning roadster exceeded expectations and was perhaps one of Ferrari's most innovative models to date.

Launched in 2008 the California was the first to sport a front-engine V8, the first to use direct injection, the first seven-speed transmission, the first proper launch-control system, the first stacked exhaust and the very first full retractable hardtop. Some serious milestones for the marque all in the one release.

Powered by a 454hp front-engine naturally-aspirated 4.3 litre V8 driven through its smooth shifting 7 Speed Getrag dual-clutch gearbox delivering 0 – 100km/h in just 3.5 seconds.
