Ferrari California – Anderson Germany

Ferrari has really changed up their line up over the past year, with the California and 458 being the sexiest of the bunch. Anderson is one of the premiere tuners out of Germany, always able to get a little bit more out of the car. With an ECU reflash and a tri-mode stainless steel exhaust system they managed to get an extra 55 horsepower out to beast up to 515 bhp.

The pipes are built with a special valve that can be adjusted depending on how much of a menace to society you feel like at that particular moment. The company also bolted on a set of 21-inch wheels up front and 22-inch rollers out back and installed a new suspension control module that can allow the car to be lowered up to 1.3 inches.

California @ Yas Marina

I am a fan of the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi, I am also a fan of the Ferrari California. Now the combination of the two with Ferrari test driver Marc Gene make for a very entertaining drive. Burning tires through turns, the perfect oversteer around the corners. Damn I wish I could drive like that around those corners, but I would probably get a little too close to the barriers since there is very little room for mistakes on this track.

Ferrari California Edo Competition

The Ferrari California has been an interesting vehicle for the past year, and I saw it in front of me at the Zayanni Showroom and pictures do not do it justice. I think Ferrari have done an exquisite job of creating a beautiful hard top convertible, and it has this aggressive stance to this vehicle. Edo Competition have done the right job of not going overboard with the modifications to the vehicle, but some tuning modifications and wheels have made this vehicle look quite agressive and give it that extra boost to about 500 bhp out of the 4.3 Liter V8. With a top speed of 315 km/h and a 0-62 of 3.9 seconds this vehicle is a force to be reckoned with.
