AUTOSTRADA Motore Inc., sole importer and distributor of Ferrari in the Philippines, hosted its annual Esperienza Ferrari in Cebu presenting the Ferrari Portofino to its clients at Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino.
From the comfortable day-to-day drives to a beast of a car, the Ferrari Portofino is the new V8 GT set to dominate its segment through its perfect combination of sportiness, elegance, and comfort on board.
Referring to one of Italy’s most beautiful towns, Portofino has been known as a symbol of quaint beauty and has become synonymous with elegance, sportiness and understated luxury. Bearing the name of the town, the Ferrari Portofino has become the most versatile GT car.
The renowned Ferrari V8 turbo, a member of the engine family that won the International Engine of the Year Award in 2016 and 2017 consecutively, is capable of a massive 600cv and sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds. Thanks to the adoption of new components and specific calibration of the engine management software, the output power increased 40cv more than the California T power unit.
The Ferrari Portofino is designed for great dailies and converts from an authentic Berlinetta into an open-top Spider in just 14 seconds even in low-speed driving. The new model is perfect for any occasion with various advantages – retractable hardtop, spacious trunk, ample passenger space, and two rear seats for short trips.
New features are added for the on-board comfort of this new vehicle, including a new air-conditioning system to provide passengers comfort whether top up or down, a new steering wheel, a new backrest design for a spacious legroom and passenger display.
Ferrari completely revised its vehicle dynamic characteristics and integrated new technologies to have a more dynamic, responsive car that also delivers superior ride comfort; overall the most powerful convertible car that Ferrari has ever produced.
