California Wins Best Design in China

Shanghai, 1st July 2009 – The Chinese car magazine Oriental Car honoured the Ferrari California with the Best Car Design Award 2009. The important magazine evaluated 910 models shown at the Shanghai Auto Show last April, declaring the new 8-cylinder from Maranello the winner due to the perfect relation between performance, technology and style.

The car’s content was crucial for the result: such as the sophisticated aerodynamics, reducing consumption and guaranteeing high downforce, but also the dual-clutch combining comfort and performance like no other road car. Every single detail has been planned to guarantee highest driving pleasure.

They have cloned a Rolls Royce sedan so why not a California?

Thank you Mike 430 for posting this thread from the chinese view on the Cali, i don't think it was Mike's intention to bring this up so you fellows can criticize on the chinese, if so then what is the difference between Ferrarichat and FL?

Lets respect each others taste no need to jump on it whenever we get a chance to, We all agree Ferrari is a lifestyle more than just speed then how would this represent? i have seen the Cali in action it really is not that bad, and compared to the other rides in 2008 - 2009 it properly is the best design car at that time.

If both Andrew and Boxer would like this site to continue and grow as a international site then i think some of the fellows here needs to grow up or else Ferrarichat doesn't seem that bad afterall.

Cheers
