The Ferrari Portofino is the new V8 GT that is set to make a statement. The vehicle has the perfect combination of outright performance and versatility, as well as style and comfort. The Ferrari Portofino is the most powerful convertible designed. “Ferrari represents the pinnacle of high-performance, luxury motoring and timeless design”.
The Ferrari Portofino is named after one of the most beautiful villages on the Italian Riverina, symbolising pure sophistication and style.
The exterior of the car combines the advantages of a retractable hardtop and a sleek design creating a sporty vibe with elegance and energy. The car includes the usual Ferrari aerodynamic process in addition to the management of flows involved in heat disposition. The retractable hard top (RHT) was completely redesigned and can open or close in just 14 seconds, ensuring practicality and smoothness.
The interior of the car includes a variety of new features, such as an infotainment system with a 10.2 inch touchscreen display, an air-conditioning system that creates comfort for the driver and passengers with the top either up or down, a new steering wheel, and an 18-way electrically adjustable seat, for the front two seats.
Additionally, this outstanding vehicle also features a roomy boot and a generous cockpit space. There is also an option, where the luggage compartment in the boot accommodates room for two rear seats that are suitable for shorter trips.
Another new improvement is the wind deflector, which reduces airflow when the top is down by 30% and additionally reduces aerodynamic noise. This is extremely appealing to all new owners of this car, as it allows for longer drives on windy days with the top down.
The Ferrari V8 turbo engine was nominated as the International Engine of the Year in 2016 and 2017, and now produces 40 CV more than the California T’s power. This is due to the adoption of new components and specific calibration of the engine management software.
This vehicle was presented with the Best Cabrio 2019 Award during the Bestcars 2019 Awards ceremony, for its V8 GT. This was the second consecutive year that this luxurious car was recognised for its prestige designs.
This incredible engine allows the vehicle to unleash a massive 600 CV and sprinting from 0 to 200km/h in just 10.8 seconds.
“There’s certainly a connection between the Ferrari Portofino vehicle and the Italian seaside town. They’re both gorgeous, dramatic and unforgettable,” – Ben Gartland (Director of Ferrari’s new video series).
