The 600 Scaglietti and 599 Fiorano are both front engined. The F430 is the only mid-engined Ferrari currently in the lineup.A front engine Ferrari? Seems a little odd. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure it drives like a dream. But that's a big break from tradition, isn't it?
Thanks - i didnt really wake up for this, i just had a bad sleep.Good catch Adonis. I agree with SVTKAR3 - I saw this and went immediately to post before I saw yours. You must be the early bird!
Going to move it to the front page shortly.
The car looks great. I'd love to see the interior.
My only criticism is, I would think that they'd use a numeric name of some kind for the car instead of just California.
So now Ferrari finally has a competitor for the 911/Aston Martin Vantage crowd, eh?
Remember, you can't take the miles off by throwing it in reverse!I have a sudden urge to become a valet parking attendant in Chicago...
Bad night sleep? I hear that. I just found out that I have sleep apnea and it stinks. I've always got headaches and feel tired. Can't wait for my sleep study -can't get here soon enough.Thanks - i didnt really wake up for this, i just had a bad sleep.
i might be alone with this, but i still wish i saw this in a Maserati garment. As it was originally a Maserati.
i agree with you, some numbers would be nice. than just a plain California name tag.
Thanks for the correction.The 600 Scaglietti and 599 Fiorano are both front engined. The F430 is the only mid-engined Ferrari currently in the lineup.
The direct predecessors to those vehicles also followed that vein - which is to say the true "sports car" of the group was mid-engined and the "grand tourers" were front engined V12s.
What is a departure from tradition is the fact that the California is a front engined V8 model - all previous (or close to all) front-engined Ferraris were V12 equipped.
So a bit of a break in tradition for the Prancing Horse.
