Ferrari to paint 2012 Delhi Auto Expo scarlet with California, 599 GTB Fiorano, 458 Italia and Ferrari FF
Ferrari is arguably the most popular supercar manufacturer on our planet. What with even a kindergarten kid reciting the manufacturer’s name at the very mention of a race car. The Italian supercar manufacturer will be putting on display its entire line up of car variants. This consists of the glamorous Ferrari California, famous gran turismo 599 GTB Fiorano, sophisticated 458 Italia and even more sophisticated Ferrari FF.
California is reportedly the highest selling Ferrari today. The car is powered by a 4.3L V8 motor that generates 460 prancing horses and 485 Nm torque. It is claimed that the California goes from nothing to a ton in a seriously quick 3.9 seconds and tops out at 310 kmph. The 7 speed dual clutch transmission found in California. The car retails for Rs 2.27 crores (ex-showroom Delhi).
Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano
The 599 GTB has to be the oldest car here. But make no mistake, the Gran Turismo is far from being dated. Under the hood of this Ferrari is a 6.0L V12 that generates (brace yourself) a scary 612 bhp and 608 Nm of pulling power. The 599 GTB Fiorano has a top speed of 330 kmph and 0-100 kmph acceleration figure of just 3.7 seconds. This car retails for Rs 3.37 crores (ex-showroom Delhi).
Ferrari 458 Italia
The 458 Italia made its debut in 2009. The car made its debut with a 4.5L V8 engine generating a gobsmacking power output of 562 bhp and 540 Nm of torque. 458 Italia is the successor to the very popular F430. Across the world, many have rated the Italia very highly on its styling and looks and 458 Italia is a worthy contender for the ‘best looking sportscar in the world’ tag. Ferrari 458 Italia has a top whack of more than 325 kmph and does 0-100 kmph in merely 3.4 seconds. This Ferrari is available for Rs 2.56 crores (ex-showroom Delhi).
One thing that is common to the above mentioned three cars is the 7 speed dual clutch transmission.
Now, the show stopper! Of the four cars to be showcased at the expo, Ferrari FF is the latest from Scuderia. The car is powered by a gigantic 6.3L V12 engine that generates 651 bhp and 683 Nm torque. Hope you jaw avoided hitting the floor!! FF has a topspeed of 335 kmph and accelerates from 0-100 kmph in just 3.7 seconds. Ferrari FF is the fastest four seater car on the planet. FF sports an eye watering price tag of 3.42 crores.
We are really excited to see these legendary supercars at the fast approaching auto show.
