Last month, Ferrari revealed the all new Portofino and it would act as a replacement for the California T. The name of the car comes from a small fishing village situated in Italy. Ferrari Portofino will be riding on a new chassis which is set to be much lighter than the California T. After showcased this car at 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, now they disclosed a new official advertisement for it. Portofino wants to be leader in the GT segment and the new style reiterates just that.

Ferrari Portofino will have the same engine as its predecessor i.e. 3.9 liter twin-turbo V8 engine and rear-wheel drive layout. The engine was nominated in the International Engine of the Year for two consecutive years 2016 and 2017. This setup gives out an amazing 592 horsepower and 460 Nm of torque. One shouldn’t forge that it is a cabriolet. To accelerate from naught to 62mph it takes 3.5 seconds which is an improvement of 0.1 seconds over California T.
The top speed of Ferrari Portofino is more than 199mph. there are lot of changes made to the interior especially with the air conditioner which makes it comfortable even when it is open. All these numbers are inconsequential if one doesn’t experience it. In this new advertisement, the practicality and it sheer power is reflected.
