he FERRARI California is powered by a 4.3L V8 delivering 454 HP. Turn the Manettino dial to Sport and the California instantly begins breathing fire. Take control of gear shifts with the steering wheel mounted paddle shifters and the Ferrari California instantly becomes entertaining. Lower the roof and the vertically stacked exhausts reach their maximum boisterous potential in no time. The howl from the exhaust reaches a crescendo near the red-line before a shotgun like echo erupts as you change up a gear. It sounds incredible.
