You see, Ferraris are built and meant to be objects of desire, and among the priciest possessions, money can buy. The good thing about them is that they have proven, over time, to be worth every cent spent on them. They look nice and move amazingly.
But until you feast your eyes on the Ferrari Portofino, you might not have seen the best of Ferrari yet. The Portofino came to first replace the 10-year-old California and address some of the challenges that its predecessor had encountered.
As such, it is gifted an engine that is more powerful and better than that of California. We are talking of a 3.9-liter, twin-turbo, 90 degrees V8. With this, achieving 591bhp at 7500rpm is no big deal.
Ferraris has formed a tendency to give its cars a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. This one too is one of them.
The inside of any Portofino is a luxurious home to enjoy and inhale. Therein are leather seats as well as 10.2-inch infotainment display.
There is quite a noticeable concentration on sporty driving and this better displayed in the cabin. The flat-bottomed steering wheel is one good indicator of this aspect of the Portofino.
Here you will find integrated ignition and drive-mode switches. There is also the display which is a partially digital and considerably large central-mounted tachometer. Other controls are easy and simple too.
One of the things we must emphasize about the Portofino is that it is a vehicle for the adept driver. However, we take not of the light steering and responsive communication on all-round, assisted by gadgets. It can simply be described as a pleasant car that is cool, can get sporty and is usable all year round.
