2013 Ferrari California Drops Weight Equal To One Olsen Twin

Trophy wives rejoice! The 2012 Ferrari California will get you to Barney's that much faster thanks to an increase in power to 490 hp and a removal of around 66 pounds — or one Olsen Twin. They've also added a Handling Speciale package for those inclined to drive somewhere other than Madison Avenue.

It's easy to dismiss the California as the go-to car for someone who wants a Ferrari but has no idea what that means because it's the go-to car for someone who wants a Ferrari but has no idea what that means. This reality doesn't mean the car can't also be a world-class performer.

With the drop in weight and increase in power comes an acceleration time now at 0-to-62 mph of just 3.8 seconds. Not shabby. The "Handling Speciale" package adds the Magnetorheologicalicious dampers found on the 458 Italia, stiffer springs, and a 10% quicker steering ratio.

And it wouldn't be a new Ferrari if there weren't more colors. Yeah, colors! Two tone finishes. Three-layer paint. Goody.
