The mid-front engined sportscar becomes the first model in the Ferrari line-up to benefit from the new 7-speed dual clutch transmission system, however 10% of Ferrari's clientèle still demand a manual system.

The Paris Motor Show is barely 6 weeks away and arguably the most anticipated unveiling at the show will be the all-new Ferrari California. Sure, we have seen just about every detail of the new entry level model from the Prancing Horse, but that doesn't compare to seeing the model in the flesh and being able to analyse the beauty with your own eyes.

The mid-front engined sportscar becomes the first model in the Ferrari line-up to benefit from the new 7-speed dual clutch transmission system which does nothing but enhance the pure awesomeness of the model. However 10% of Ferrari's clientèle still demand a manual transmission, therefore the Italians will give in to this demand. No details on exactly what this manual transmission system will be however the six-speed version from 612 Scaglietti looks a good bet.

An additional option set to be offered will be a new HGTC handling package, similar to the one already offered in the 612 Scaglietti. It will include a set of lightweight wheels as well as a slightly revised suspension system that will hug the California to the ground just a little bit more.
