Launched at the Paris Motor Show in 2008, the modern iteration of the Ferrari California as we know it, is a homage to an all time great. It takes simple sports car DNA borrowed from the 1950's/1960's of Front engine, rear drive, and the flowing lines of a roaster with a low raked windscreen. Intended to attract new clientele to the brand the California did receive alternations not found in most Ferrari's such as adjusting the ride height upward for ease of getting in and out. Perhaps the biggest stand out item is that this is the first time a front-engine Ferrari has featured a V8. Beyond this many firsts were implemented into the mechanical design, such as direct injection, 7-speed Dual Clutch Transmission, and multi-link rear suspension amongst other items.
The example on offer is a 2010 Model that was delivered new by Wide World Ferrari to its first owner in October of 2009. In February of 2012 the second owner acquired the car with about 3,600 miles. Finally in September of 2015 the third and current owner acquired the car as a Certified Pre Owned example from Miller Motorcars of Greenwich, CT. At the time the car showed 4,655 miles. Today a mere 6,239 miles shows on the odometer and the car reflects that of a barely used example. Service has always been conducted at Authorized Ferrari Dealerships and the most recent service was performed in May of 2018 by Algar Ferrari of Rosemont, PA. An annual service was performed along with an airbag recall, all completed at 6,037 Miles. Additionally the car has been treated to a Clear Bra and also has the front license plate adapter through the grill for those in states that require a front license plate. The Clean CARFAX shows consistent mileage, service and shows no issues of any kind as the car reflects as well.
Included in the sale are the original books, battery tender, Car Covers and 2-Keys.
