…Edo Competition got their hands on Ferrari’s California?

Edo Competition Ferrari California

Ferrari’s new California convertible isn’t exactly the most aggressive looking car to ever come off of the Maranello assembly line, but for drivers that are looking for hard top convenience with hard edged looks, Edo Competition is more than happy to take over from where the Italians left off.

Features include a bump in horsepower and torque thanks to a remapped ECU and a pair of high-flow cats, a set of custom rims, and the ability to trick out the suspension and the interior if you should find the stock options unsatisfying.

By Edo standards, this job isn’t made of the most aggressive modifications on the planet, but when you’re starting with a canvas as flawless as the Ferrari California, it’s hard to do much to perfection.

…The Ferrari California is here?

Ferrari California

Though it might look a little funky from the front, it’s all business from the back and sides.

Ferrari just announced the “hugely versatile, innovation-packed GT Maranello” they’re calling the Ferrari California. (Take that, other states!)

Featuring 8-cylinders of mid-front mounted Grand Tourer power, it’s exclusively a convertible with a folding hard top for when you’re ready to mess up the ‘do.

Specs?

0 – 100 km/h in less than 4.0 seconds, 7-speed dual clutch transmission, multilink rear suspension, F1-Trac traction control system, Brembo brakes, carbon-ceramic discs, etc. Basically, if you want it in a sports car, then it’s there.

To me, the front looks a little bubbly, and the wheels don’t do anything for me, but the back looks pretty good with single tail lights and vertical exhaust, and the side looks pretty good as well with classic proportions, so maybe this prancing horse will grow on me soon enough.

Look for it at Ferrari dealerships and country clubs near you.
