2011 Ferrari California Vintage Package

In an attempt to further entrench themselves to its exclusive customers, Ferrari is launching a new customization program that allows Ferrari owners to have their modern beasts be given a classic touch. Called the Vintage Package, the program is being offered for a wider-range of Ferrari models with the first of these models being the Ferrari California .

Among the aesthetic additions added to the California through the Vintage Package include a unique front grille, door mirrors, and A-pillar trims to go along with special chrome highlights for the side vents. On top of that, the California Vintage Package will also include wheels with a diamond polish look.

Performance specs for the California remain untouched so expect the same 4,300 cc V8 Direct Injection engine that appears in all California models. This particular engine can produce an output of 460 horsepower at 7,750 RPM and 357 lb/ft of torque at 5,000 RPM. Likewise, the engine is mated to a a seven-speed dual clutch transmission with a top speed of 192 mph and a 0-60 mph time of four seconds.

For now, these are the only details of the California Vintage Package that we have. We can only assume that as one of the ’older’ Ferrari models relative to the new line-up the company is coming out with - specifically the 458 Italia and the FF - the California was the easy choice to become the first Ferrari model to be outfitted with the Vintage Package. Nevertheless, we expect an announcement from Ferrari sooner rather than later with all of the details on their newest venture. With the 2011 Geneva Motor Show set to open in a couple of weeks, we’re holding out hope that the announcement regarding Ferrari’s Vintage Package will take place then.

The sooner, of course, the better.

This one looks absolutely aggressive and oozing with angst. Well, frankly speaking, I was looking forward to the upgrade in the engine rather than the exterior especially when the car has a good look already.

I love the dressed-up interior of this California! It looks so cozy and comfortable on that. It’s a good thing as well that it has an efficient and very impressive engine which is fitted for this kind of vehicle.

I’m sure this car is a kind of vintage car. The design of this car is great and this design is like a brand-new car, but it’s vintage car. smiley

I will not definitely mistaken this car as a vintage car or I can see the oval grille! However, I find the newer version of Ferrari California kind of impressive and sporty and as a additional bonus there’s a hot chick beside the carsmiley

I think it s much better if they leave this car and donate it to the museum or they auctioned it. Most probably the buyer will less consider to buy this car and I believe on that.

The blue on this one is certainly a refreshing take. I am so much used to the Ferrari red scheme, that it has become quite a common thing. Seeing a Ferrari in an entirely different color is definitely great.

This is quite a looker. I am not really all out for that classic look, but I can say that this one is good. I wonder what model would be next for this lineup.

I prefer the red Ferrari. Why did they do it in blue? Didn’t they know that half of their success is the red painting?

Just another Ferrari...what I appreciate on this one is the great color! smiley

The arrow is pointing at either the pull switch for a fire extinguisher (in case there is a fire with these ones too LOL) even though engine is "towards" the back. I want the Scuderia version, Even Sexier!, who cares if they flame on right? Sorry Bullheads, I’d take a Ferrari over a Lambo any day.

I cant wait to take my 4 and half year old son who will be five when it some out. He loves cars and the movie cars. I bet it is in 3d which will be awesome. Next summer is also the smurfs which he wants to see.
