Ferrari's new entry-level car packs a whopping 590 horsepower

Cars
Welcome to the Ferrari stand at the Frankfurt Motor Show 2017. And behind me, is the new Portofino, the replacement for the California T. And its a very good looking thing its to it. Now, the two boxes on is supposed to be three boxes. Before you had bonnet, roof, and boot. Now you have bonnet and roof boot, which means it looks more like So the [UNKNOWN] F12 will now be 812 Superfast I suppose. Under the bonnet which somebody behind me just opened you still have a turbocharged V8. But all the internals have been changed. The engine's tucked all the way back up under the dashboard. They've now moved the battery as well to the center, because now you have stop start you have actually some bigger batteries. So it's quite a big weight, it's about 20 kilos. So putting that Right in the center help its weight distribution. [INAUDIBLE] seconds, and it now puts out 600 horsepower, or 582 brake horsepower and 560 pounds-foot of torque. It's got 600 horsepower. That is a huge amount. Near enough what the McLaren F1 had, it's more torque that McLaren F1 has. In this, the cozy for our rate. It's marvelous. Just getting around behind and now you can see the headlights and some placing down engine, there's a small slit which lets air going through those through the front wheel option and is vented at the side just down there. Ultra refresher in those front cautious. There's no [UNKNOWN] and knowing body and it's 35% stiffer than the California T was. It's also first Ferrari not to be made with the [UNKNOWN] I already take two normal cabin bags in the boot, sleeker. Let's get a look inside. In here well we've got the big screen from the GTC4Lusso. We've also got two TFT screens either side of the central analogue rev counter. The car is 80 kilos lighter overall. And although they're not specifying exactly where they've saved all the weight, one of them must be surely from these seats which now have magnesium frames to them. Seats, back there obviously you've got the two little jump seats, but there's now an extra five centimeters of rear leg room. Which doesn't sound like a lot, but it's something at least. We've got EPAS steering. We've also got an EDIF for the first time. And combined with spring rates that are now 15.5% stiffer at the front and 19% stiffer at the rear This car clearly is gonna have as much road for start and it's going to be I think, a more sporting car in the California ever was. When you run together, extra power Light weight. The looks are sort of a bit like an F-12. The stiffer spring rates, the e-diff. This car should be really, really good. can't wait to drive it.
