Wearing an Azzurro California livery, which was the color chosen for the legendary 1960s spider’s appearance at the New York Auto Show in 1962, the dual-purpose Spider/Coupé has a retractable hard top that closes in just 14 seconds.

Wit the Ferrari California revealing just a few weeks ago, new photographs with roof closed have been released today. Wearing Azzurro California livery, which was the color chosen for the legendary 1960s spider’s appearance at the New York Auto Show in 1962, the dual-purpose Spider/Coupé has a retractable hard top that closes in just 14 seconds. The new direct injection 4.3-Liter V8 engine making 460 horsepower accelerates the 2+ coupe convertible to 100km/h in under 4 seconds. For the first time in a Ferrari, the California receives a new 7-speed dual clutch transmission for a gear shifting time of zero.

Ferrari President Luca di Montezemolo recently had some quality time behind the wheel of the California at the Fiorano circuit and stated, ““The California is an extraordinary car and I was delighted with the performance, comfort and driving pleasure it delivered. The California is, like all of our models, the epitome of cutting-edge innovation. Its gearbox, suspensions and chassis are the most advanced possible.”

Unfortunately the public will have to wait until the car is revealed in the flesh at Paris this September.
