While everyone’s attention is being directed toward the new Ferrari F12berlinetta , CDC Performance has unveiled a tuning kit for the oft-forgotten Ferrari California . It includes a basic exterior upgrade, but the most impressive changes have been made under the hood.
The exterior kit includes a new front spoiler, rear diffuser and front grille — all made in carbon fiber. Inside the California, the only modification is the addition of Alcantara with Rosso stitching.
As you can see, the exterior and interior modifications have been kept to a minimum because the tuner’s attention is focused on what lays beneath the hood. The California’s V-8 engine is been equipped with a supercharger system with intercooling that increases the output to a total of 600 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque – that’s an increase of 117 horsepower and 70 pound-feet of torque. The model has also been equipped with a new standalone exhaust system that offers up a beautiful symphony of engine noise.
The tuner also installed a suspension lift system that can lower or raise the ride height by 40 millimeters (1.5 inch). The car rolls on a set of forged alloy wheels, measuring in at 9-by-21 inches up front and 12-by-22 inches out back. The wheels are wrapped in 255/30R21 and 315/25R22 tires, respectively.
