Ferrari may be looking to use the California to fill a gap in its lineup. When the F430 is upgraded to the 500 hp (rumored) F450, there is a little bit of breathing room at Ferrari’s lower end.
So now the 460 hp California may be getting a performance-oriented upgrade. This spy shot suggest a more powerful version of the hardtop convertible is in the works. If the rumored name of Mondial will be used for this special edition, then we should expect a weight saving as well.
No word yet on when this Calfornia may be ready, but we’d imagine it will be a while considering how busy Ferrari’s development team is. It’s already working on the F450, refreshed 599 GTB, 599 Spyder, and a 612 upgrade.
