We don’t know if this was what the Mamas and the Papas were talking about when they released their hit, California Dreaming, but this latest tuning package from Wheelsandmore would definitely warm us up on a Winter’s day. Apparently, the German tuner thought they could do better than Ferrari by tweaking this California’s engine, along with its exterior look, to come up with their California ’Dreamin’ package.
The ’Dreamin’ package starts off with a new removable, valve controlled exhaust system and an update to the ecu software of the 4,300 cc V8 Direct Injection engine. These changes boost power to 500 hp and 525 lb-ft of torque, up from the standard 460 hp and 357 lb/ft of torque. Other technical additions include an optional combination of 200 cell sports catalysts and premuffler replacement tubes, handcrafted by Wheelsandmore.
The California ’Dreamin’ package continues on the exterior with aerodynamic and design packages. These packages include lacquered selected serial parts and a double-line black race stripe, black plasma coated end tips, and discreet carbon elements at the front- and rear bumper. Other additions include side skirts and a carbon boot lid spoiler. The final touch was provided by a new set of 3-piece forged wheels (size 9.0x21” at the front and 12.5x21”) wrapped around S1Evo barrels from Hankook (245/30/21” tires at the front and 345/25/21” tires at the rear). The Ferrari California was also dropped by about 40mm with special lowering springs.
