Ferrari Portofino

Ferrari Portofino

REVIEW

Ferrari created a new segment for themselves when they revealed the California in 2008 – the slightly softer, folding hardtop GT car. It was still a Ferrari at heart with a 4.3 litre V8 engine and was a huge success, bringing lots of new customers to the brand (a large amount of them female). But the Ferrari purists didn’t like it, it was too heavy, too soft and not fast enough. There were big changes in 2014 when the California T was launched, which ushered in the era of turbocharged V8s to modern Ferraris and there was a big jump from 453 to 552 bhp along with tighter handling and better looks. But now Ferrari has launched the all-new Portofino, named after the Italian town and just as beautiful. They’ve managed to somehow keep the folding hard top but allow it to look stunning roof up or down, while the rest of the styling is sharp, aggressive yet achingly pretty. The engine remains a 3.9 litre twin turbo V8, but now power is up to 592bhp (in the entry level Ferrari!) and weight is down, so performance has taken an expected jump. 0-62mph takes just 3.5 seconds and it’ll hit 199mph while making your ears tingle with the sound of that V8. The interior is fantastic too, with new infotainment systems, acres of leather and some rear seats suitable for small people. The Portofino promises to be one of the best all-round Ferrari’s ever and we can’t wait to get our hands on one.
