DMC Ferrari California 3S Silver Carbon Fiber

German Luxury Tuner DMC took a regular Ferrari California and turned it into a Carbon Fiber PS Monster.

The Duesseldorf based engineers created a special Body Kit utilizing Silver Carbon Fiber. It was the choice of this exclusive material which gave the 3S it's name: Surfista Silver Star. While the carbon fiber components stay mostly loyal to their original lines, they were slightly improved after extensive wind-tunnel testing.

On the front, a silver carbon fiber splitter not only looks good but also improves downforce on the front axle at high speeds. On the rear, a silver carbon fiber rear diffuser minimizes the upforce on the rear axle. The license plate bay is refined using a silver carbon fiber apron, which completes the new look and aerodynamic package for the California.

Using physical engine modification combined with turbo chargers, the Germans were able to present a compressor engine that received an increased ability of 606 PS (598 HP / 446 kW), up from 460 PS (454 HP / 338 kW). Utilizing these new muscles, the 4 seater is now able to reach a 325 KM/H maximum, 100 KM/H are reached after 3.9 seconds.

The engine is modified using a turbo-loader in combination with physically enlarged injection nozzles and a new tailor made crankshaft. It is supported by a new exhaust sytem that is made if T309 stainless steel. It comes with 200 cell catalysts and an improved X-Pipe and is fully controllable via an on-board valve control system.

In order to control these massive powers, DMC's engineers took a special alliance with Miami based wheel maker ADV1. The renowned company brought in their 21 and 22 inch rims, which are supplying the necessary grip-base to keep the 3S on the street. On the front, 9Jx21" rims are used while the rear utilizes 11.5Jx22". This combination adds an aggressive wedge look to the overall appearance, accompanying the dynamic look of DMC's styling package.
