You may think that we’ve gone crazy for talking about bronze wheels when they are clearly gold, but, you see, they are not.
A small photo shoot of a unique Ferrari California is showing us a new look for the grand tourer which we cannot really place our hands upon. We mean, sure, the exotic model is hot with that black paint covering its body, but we’re not really sure what to say about the bronze wheels. And speaking of them, they have a brushed surface which may sound appealing to some and make other angry. Even so, despite its new look, it’s definitely worth taking a look at it in the images posted below.
Since it doesn’t have the silver front grille, we can talk about the California and not the California T, which has debuted back in 2008. This is a 2+2 two-door hardtop convertible which is making use of a front-mid engine, with rear-wheel layout. It stands at 4,563 mm long, 1,902 mm wide and 1,308 mm tall, with a curb weight of 1,630 kg and a wheelbase of 2,670 mm. Under the hood, the 4.3 liter naturally aspirated V8 engine is connected to either a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, producing a total of 453 HP (338 kW) and 485 Nm (358 lb-ft) of torque. From 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) it needs less than 4 seconds and top speed stands at 310 km/h (193 mph). The exotic car has been replaced by the California T last year.
