Styling the Ferrari California

15 Sep
Ferrari California (2012)

The Ferrari California is the first Ferrari Gran Turismo with a mid-front 8-cylinder engine

Indubitably, this vehicle uncompromisingly combines sportiness with versatility but what I find breathtaking is the design and styling.

When designing the Ferrari California, Pininfarina opted for a classic, sculpted chassis, with a long bonnet and the passenger area slightly weighted towards the rear. The side of the car features a strong, dynamic, raked line. The line lifts at the height of the door handle to trace the outline of the typical Ferrari rear bumper. The air intake in the front bumper is enhanced by a traditional grille. The slender air intake vent on the bonnet and the side air vents both echo distinctive features of the 1957 Ferrari California 250.
