Design Features

The Italian novelty, apparently, is based on the same chassis as the predecessor. Hence, there are very small differences in the exterior dimensions of the body. The new Portofino has a length of 4586 mm (+16 mm relative to the “Californian” fellow), in width – 1938 mm (+28 mm), in height – 1318 mm (-4 mm). The weighting of the model, if not ideal, is as close to that as possible – 46:54 in favor of the aft part (in California T the mass distribution was 47:53).

Externally, Ferrari Portofino, as befits a high-speed car, is full of dynamics and aggression. When the roof is raised, the car finds absolutely smooth and flawless aerodynamic outlines that form a typical fastback silhouette.

In the presence of a large, almost the entire width of the body, the central air intake, two more modest niches on the sides of the bumper and a couple of not so noticeable cutouts along the outer edge of the headlights. Compact sections next to the optics blocks ensure the intake of the incoming air, after which it is run through the channels in the front wheel arches and is pulled outward, heading along the sidewalls. This reduces the resistance, and improves the aerodynamic characteristics. An impressive splitter and a hefty hood with an original surface topography add the look of the Ferrari sports car to the drive and excitement.

In the bowels of the compartment under the new coupe-cabriolet of the Italian spill, there is a 3.9-liter bi-turbated “eight” with a return of 600 hp. (at 7500 rpm) and 760 Nm (3000-5250 rpm). This V8 is an improved version of the F154, which debuted at California T in 2019 and twice (in 2019 and 2019) recognized as the engine of the year. During the upgrade, the engine received new pistons and connecting rods, a revised exhaust path, and a different control program. The result was an increase in power by 40 hp. and a torque of 5 Nm.

Together with the V8 engine, there is a 7-speed robotic box that allows gear changes with the help of the keys on the steering wheel. This tandem can accelerate the car to 100 km / h in 3.5 seconds and give it a top speed of 320 km / h. It is clear that such dynamics are provided by the appropriate configuration of the transmission and the chassis. Scheme of the Portofino chassis provides the presence of an electronic rear differential E-Diff3, magnetorheological damping system SCM-E and electric power steering.
