2010 Ferrari California

and well known supercar manufacturer Ferrari.

This is the new Ferrari California. A car completely alone in its class from any other supercar in the Ferrari range. The new California is the first of its kind being an alternative to an F430. This new Ferrari is very special and important as it has a few features never before seen on any other Ferrari.

One of these new features is a front-mounted V8 engine. Ferrari have only ever put V12 engines in the front and V8s in the middle. This 4.3L V8 engine is a derivative of that in the F430 except that the California has a flat-plane crank instead of a common/conventional one like the F430 meaning the California can rev higher and more freely than other V8 engined cars. This engine produces 440bhp and can lead onto a top speed between the regions of 190 and 200mph.

Another fantastic feature is the amazing metal folding hardtop. Metal folding roofs are usually a job for German super-cruisers but now Ferrari have joined the game. The roof activation in the video is in slow motion for effect but otherwise it can go from convertible to coupe in less than 12 seconds. Also as you may have noticed it has a new touch-screen screen in the dashboard that displays your Sat-Nav and also can be used as the radio and a DVD player.

The model name ‘California’ refers to the nostalgic time of 1958 when Ferrari released the 250GT California to raise Ferrari awareness in the US. The prestigious 250 California is now reproduced now with the all new Ferrari California for 2009.

The list price is £143,000 before options that include leather trims and coulors as well as metallic paint jobs. All Californias have carbon ceramic brakes as standard. This particular California was filmed at HR Owen Ferrari & Maserati in London. The spec of this car is Grigio Silverstone with Crema hide.

All-new Jaguar F-Type Coupe & R

5-liter supercharged V8 engine and will reach 60 mph in 4.0 seconds, and a top speed of 186 mph (electronically limited)2. The F-TYPE S Coupe and F-TYPE Coupe are powered by 3-liter supercharged V6 engines in 380hp and 340hp forms respectively, giving 0-60 mph in 4.8/5.1 seconds and top speeds of 171/161 mph2.

The F-TYPE Coupe visual message is defined by three key ‘heart lines’, that visual message beginning with the formidable grille. It is from the twin ‘shark gill’ openings that sit either side of the grille that the essential first heart line – which mirrors the design of the F-TYPE Convertible – flows and begins to take shape. Running up through the headlamp, and accentuated by the LED ‘J blade’ signature running lamps, the line then arcs up over the front wheel arch before dropping elegantly as it runs through the door, washing out into the muscular rear haunch.

The second heart line begins at the rear edge of the door, swelling outwards and upwards to create a visually strong wheel arch, emphasizing the car’s rear-wheel drive layout, before dropping vertically through the tail lamp ...
