Spied: 2013 Ferrari California

Spy Shots

It appears that it’s time for the California to get a midlife facelift.

As these shots prove, Ferrari is not only working on the successor to the 599 but also on a hotter version of the California. This particular prototype was spotted in Maranello and what's really interesting is the front hood; or rather what's underneath it. Our sources heard a distinct turbo sound emanating from the engine when shooting the California prototype and given the new air intakes on show there's a strong chance the engine has been turbocharged.

When driving on the road, the hood was left slightly open, but when sprinting around the track the giant black plaster was removed off the lower end of the hood, presumably to keep the engine nice and cool. The strange bulb on the hood may indicate the turbo has not been properly installed yet. More power should do the California good, and a California GTO or Scuderia would be most welcome.
