“…synonymous with elegance and understated luxury.”
The Ferrari Portofino is powered by a 90° 3.855 litre V8 turbocharged engine that will pump out 591 hp at 7500 rpm and generate 561 lb-ft of torque from 3000 to 5250 rpm. It can reach a top speed of 320 km/h and get there by going from 0-100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds. Ferrari claim that this is the most powerful convertible to combine the advantages of a retractable hard top, a roomy trunk and generous cockpit space plus two rear seats suitable for short trips.
All aspects of the 8-cylinder’s efficiency have been honed with the adoption of new pistons and con-rods, and a new intake system design. The geometries throughout the exhaust system have also been revolutionised. The new one-piece-cast exhaust header reduces losses, an important factor in ensuring Ferrari’s characteristic throttle response with zero turbo lag. These improvements, combined with the Variable Boost Management which adjusts torque delivery to suit the gear selected, enable the Ferrari Portofino to offer even higher levels of acceleration in all gears and lower fuel consumption compared to the outgoing model. The characteristic Ferrari V8 soundtrack has also been further enhanced and can be fully appreciated, particularly in top-down driving.
The Ferrari Design Centre-penned Ferrari Portofino is an aggressively-styled car with a two-box fastback configuration, unprecedented in a coupe/convertible with a retractable hard top, that adds extra sleekness to its silhouette, lending it a sportier character without impinging on its elegance and dynamism.
The tail design underlines the car’s sporty stance which has been further enhanced by placing the tail lights futher apart. This elegant solution cleverly conceals the rear volume housing the all-new RHT which features a more lightweight design and can be raised or lowered at low speeds.
