Good news, kids! Hard economic times has created bargains every where, and that includes a small auto maker in Maranello, Italy.
Recession bargain hunting extends even to Ferrari. Their newest offering is the California. It is the least expensive new Ferrari you can buy, a bargain at its offering price under $200k. And, there is little wait time — forget a 3-5 year backlog, the wait list for this little beastie is only 18 months!
Some of the specifics:
• 0 – 60 in 3.5 seconds
• First ever front engine V8
• Retractable hardtop
• 1st Ferrari ot built entirely by hand
• High production run: 3,000 a year
• No manual transmission option
That last one is a deal killer for me . . . too bad, its a gorgeous looking car.
