New-gen Ferrari California to be inspired by the F12 Berlinetta image

The new generation of the Ferrari California will be inspired by the F12 Berlinetta and it’s believed to make its public debut in March, 2014, during the Geneva Motor Show.

Ferrari is already working on a replacement for the outgoing California and the model in question has been already caught on camera by spy photographers across the Old Continent, several times. But now, a recent report, is placing the model into the spotlights once again, and it seems that the replacement of the sports car will have looks inspired by the F12 Berlinetta. According to Autocar, the front end of the new California will adopt some styling cues from the front mid-engined supercar, while the back will be lowered.

Our source is also saying that the model in question will use a retractable hard top and the cabin should be completely modified, and this also means a new infotainment system. As far as the engine lineup goes, the new Ferrari California will receive a 3.8 liter V8 twin turbo engine, the same one from the Maserati Quattroporte and Ghibli, which should produce a total output of 552 HP (406 kW). The new sports car should make its public debut during the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, in March.
