The credit crunch must mean nothing to Ferrari fans.
Ferrari has confirmed that the recently unveiled Ferrari California is sold out until 2011.
The 179,000 Euro (NZ$389,887) supercoupe/cab is billed as one of the most affordable in Ferrari's lineup. It has a planned production of about 2500 to 2800 Californias for 2009 and roughly 3000 cars for 2010.
Powered by an all-new direct-injected 460hp (343kW) 4.3L V8, the California is also one of the cleanest Ferraris ever built, with a reported 30% reduction in fuel consumption compared to the F430, brought about by a new seven-speed dual-clutch transmission with four separate settings and advanced aerodynamics. It is said to reach 0-62mph (0-100kmh) acceleration in under 4.0 seconds, making it pretty quick too.
