Ferrari California

Ferrari has revised its entry-level car, the front-engined and folding-hardtop California, stripping out weight, adding power and introducing an optional handling package. Pass me the electron microscope, I’m struggling to see the difference between this revised Ferrari California and the one you drove back in 2009... Forget the microscope, it’s an x-ray machine you need because the important mods are all beneath the skin. Ferrari redesigned the load paths on the California’s aluminium body structure, chopping 30kg from the kerbweight while retaining the same torsional rigidity, and extracted another 30bhp from the 4.3-litre for good measure. The top speed climbs to 193mph, and the 0-62mph time drops from a smidgen to 3.8sec.
