Ferrari California

You can drive this car in Europe (permission required) International licence accepted Airport drop off available

The Ferrari California was Ferraris' first production car to have a front-mounted V8 engine (Ferrari are usually rather partial to mid-engined V8s) and also their first car to have the dual-clutch gearbox. Unlike the majority of Ferrari models, the California is a fully automated hard-top convertible, without the loss of classic coupe lines, and can accommodate a total of 4 passengers (including driver) to share in the experience.

The Ferrari California is less aggressive in styling than some of it's predecessors, such as the 360 and F430, which is not to everyone's cup of tea but the second you put your foot on the accelerator, you're instantly reminded that the prancing stallion badge on the bonnet is backed-up by decades of motorsport history. More of a gentleman's (or ladies) Ferrari but still packing enough bite to take on its' closest rivals. The V8 engine produces 454bhp and 358 Lb-ft of torque, handled beautifully through it's seven speed paddle-shift gearbox. If you've driven automatic Ferrari gearboxes in the past, the smoother power delivery is very noticeable in comparison.

A perfect car to be appreciated fully with both the roof up or down but, given the chance, the V8 orchestra just isn't the same without your shades on and the wind blowing through your hair.

A worthy Ferrari to add to their portfolio and definitely one to be experienced by the discerning hirer...

The Ferrari California is available to hire nationwide but more competitively priced in the Birmingham and London areas to include Heathrow Airport, Gatwick Airport, London City Airport, Stansted Airport, and Birmingham Airport. A nationwide delivery/collection service is also available to accommodate the rest of the UK.

What an absolutely beautiful car, the performance of the Ferrari California was fantastic! It took an hour or two to build up my confidence to use the paddle-shift box and depress the accelerator but, after that, it was easy driving!

I have to say, I'm not a total fan of the Ferrari California design but, having driven other models in the past, the California is every bit as much of a Ferrari as it's predecessors.

I loved the performance but I think it'll be a while before the looks start to grow on me.

Mr Ankers, N.
