This is the new Ferrari Portofino, a gorgeous drop-top V8 which replaces the California T.
Its power comes from a 3855 cm3 V8 turbo engine, which has an increase of about 40bhp in power compared to the model it replaces.
Ferrari are also promising an even better sound from engine and exhaust, thanks to new engine components and engine computer software.
Studying the pictures from Ferrari, it has a sporty stance. With all new generation Ferraris they have been working very closely with the Aerodynamics department and Ferrari Design to sculpture this new car.
Inside there is a new steering wheel, a 10.2″ touchscreen infotainment system, 18-way electric seats with new backrest for improved leg room in the rear.

Basically in English.
This new car has better mechanical grip when driven way beyond my driving capabilities.
The Portofino is the first GT in the Ferrari range to be fitted with Electric Power Steering (EPS).
The all new chassis is lighter than the previous model but also is a lot stronger too.
