The spiritual successor to the iconic Ferrari 250 California, the modern Ferrari California was unveiled in 2008 as a high-performance grand tourer offering a 2+2 seating configuration and Ferrari's first folding hardtop roof system. This 2012 example comes finished in Nero over a matching leather interior and derives over 450 HP from a naturally aspirated V8 engine. It features optional power-adjustable Daytona-style seats, Scuderia fender shields, carbon ceramic disc brakes, 20” Y-spoke alloy wheels, and a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with a limited-slip differential. Showing approximately 9k miles on the odometer, this Ferrari is now being offered for auction by its seller out of California.
The Pininfarina-designed bodywork of the California is characterized by distinctive fender vents, hood scoop, integrated boot lid spoiler, and stacked quad-tipped exhaust pipes. This example is finished in Nero with a matching retractable hardtop and features optional Scuderia fender shields, yellow-painted brake calipers, and 20” Y-spoke alloy wheels in silver. The car rides on Pirelli P Zero tires and the seller notes an imperfection is present on one wheel. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with paint meter readings and a clean CARFAX report.
The cabin offers seating for four passengers and is upholstered in Nero leather accented by a yellow central tachometer, a carbon fiber trimmed steering wheel, and machined aluminum pedals and passenger footrest. Other equipment includes optional power-adjustable Daytona-style seats with logo-embossed headrests, dual-zone automatic climate control, a digital driver information screen, and an infotainment system with a touchscreen display and navigation. The steering wheel also includes an engine start button, a Manettino drive mode selector, and column-mounted paddle shifters.
The California was the first Ferrari to feature a front-mounted V8 engine as well as the first to incorporate direct fuel injection technology. The naturally aspirated 4.3-liter V8 engine delivers up to 453 HP and 358 lb.-ft of torque to the rear wheels by way of a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Acceleration from 0-60 MPH takes place in as little as 3.8 seconds with a top speed of 193 MPH. Performance features include a limited-slip differential, Ferrari’s F1-Trac traction control system, and Brembo brake calipers paired with carbon ceramic discs at all four corners. The CARFAX report shows consistent maintenance history including service at Ferrari & Maserati of Newport Beach in May 2023.
This sale will include a clean title.
