2013 Ferrari California

Although I am generally not that much into modern cars the Ferrari California appealed to me. Granted it is not Ferrari's top of the line performance vehicle but it is perhaps one of the most practical. Being a hardtop convertible makes the car very useable in any type of weather. Even with the hardtop down the trunk space is adequate, plus there is extra room behind the seats.

The Car Nut

Unless your intentions with a Ferrari are a lot of track days the California has more than adequate performance. I don't know about you but for me 483 HP is plenty! One thing I really like is the dual clutch system which works equally well in manual and automatic modes.

The color is Tour de France blue with crema (cream) interior. I spent 6 months looking for a nice California and many were a bit rough or red (which I dislike). I purchased this car in 2016 with 9K miles as a Ferrari Certified Pre-Owned from Allga Ferrari in Philadelphia. It now has approximately 13,500 miles. Since I've owned it the car has been serviced exclusively by Ferrari of Atlanta.

This California has been extremely reliable. Other than regular maintenance the car has not required any service during my 6 years of ownership. The paint is in superb condition without dents or scratches. Tires were replaces August of 2022. Car comes with factory car cover, manuals with pouches, battery tender, wind deflector with carrying case, tools, both keys and service receipts. In other words, it comes with all the goodies.
