Introducing the Ferrari Portofino
The Ferrari Portofino is the new replacement for the Ferrari California T and once again Ferrari have raised their game for this latest model. It has a 3.9-litre V8 twin-turbo engine located under the front bonnet generating around 600hp and will get you from 0-62mph in 3.5 seconds. The top speed is claimed as “over 199mph” so it truly is in a rare group of 200mph convertible Supercars. . . . And the carbon ceramic brakes will stop the 20-inch alloy wheels pretty sharpish too!

For the practically minded, the fuel consumption is in the mid 20’s per gallon which is pretty good considering what this car is capable of.

Ferrari’s Cutting Edge Engineering
Introducing Ferrari Portofino Hire from Northern Supercar Hire. It’s been a long time since Ferrari produced a car with a clutch pedal and this latest model is no different. As is now pretty much standard in the new Ferrari’s, it has a seven-speed F1-style dual clutch system which means you can drive the car in fully automatic mode or change the gears yourself with the F1-style steering wheel paddles. In any event the gear changes are lightning quick thanks in no small part to the Formula 1 development over the years.

Long gone now are the soft top convertible roofs and this Ferrari has the latest generation folding metal roof giving you the best of both worlds for hard top or open air driving at the flick of a switch depending on your preference – and the weather obviously!

The comfy leather seats are suitably stylish with stitched logos etc and are fully adjustable. This car is probably classed as a 2+2 seater Grand Tourer but don’t expect adults to fit in the 2 small rear seats. They’re really only suitable for smaller children. The boot has 292 litres of boot space with the roof up but this is reduced a bit when the roof is down – the folded down roof has to go somewhere after all!
