The latest reports on the upcoming 2012 Ferrari California have painted an interesting picture for car enthusiasts worldwide. The preview of the changes undergone in the overall makeover is surprising and much-awaited. This list could take all day, starting from better-machined internal engine components, a micro-cast exhaust, and a new engine computer mapping system. The Torque gets a bump from 358 to 373 lb. Its horsepower boosts up too from 460 to 490 hp. An improved suspension response time and the overall materials used on the chassis will have this new beauty at 66.1 lbs lighter. If all this weren’t enough, the optional Special Handling Package feature would have an upgraded magnetorheological suspension control system that will reduce the response time from 10 to 5 ms.
Wait! It’s not over yet. The seven-speed F1 twin-clutch transmission will drop the previous 0-62 time to 3.85 seconds! An additional feature change of damper options from extremely hard to soft in 8 ms should not be missed. So what are the external changes? An optional silver grille and an infotainment system hard drive with a syncing capacity with Apple and Android phones make us all look forward to the New Year for a whole bunch of reasons.
