Ferrari California

World premiere for Hamann Ferrari California

17 September 2009 - Hamann shows a tuned Ferrari California at the 2009 Frankfurt Motorshow. Apart from design elements such as a bonnet made of carbon fibre, specific modifications at the front, sides and back boost the aerodynamics. Thereby, the front spoiler reduces the lifting forces of the California which significantly improves the handling and agility. Moreover, the unobtrusive side skirt set calms the airflow between both axles.

The extra agility and handling gives room for more performance. An adjustment for the motor management is in preparation and a sport exhaust system will also be especially engineered for this sports car. This combination will advance the performance of the standard 4.3 litre V8 engine with 460 hp by up 20 percent.


A technical highlight in the offered tuning programme is the multi-part Hamann aluminium wheel called Edition Race. The black varnished rim star and the titanium bolting of the high-gloss polished rim flange emphasise the racing character. As the wheel is produced in forged technology, it is extremely light. This reduces the unsprung masses which noticeably improves both the acceleration and the braking response. The recommended wheel-tyre combination measures 9.0Jx21 inches with 245/30ZR21 tyres for the front and 12.5Jx21 rims with wheels measuring 345/25ZR21 are fitted at the back.

In addition to the normal interior, Hamann Motorsport offers an extensive programme, ranging from personalised floor mats to complete leather interior.
