Ferrari has launched the Portofino in India. The supercar will carry a price tag of Rs 3.5 crore (ex-showroom, India), making it the most affordable offering from Ferrari in the country. The Portofino will retail through the company’s dealership in Delhi which is Select Cars and through Navnit Motors in Mumbai.
The Portofino is the Ferrari’s new entry-level offering and gets a 2+2 seating configuration suitable for four adults. The Portofino is powered by a 3.9 L twin turbo V8 engine similar to the one on the California T but with different configuration. On the Portofino, it produces 600 hp of power at 7,500 rpm and 760 Nm of torque at 5,250 rpm. The top speed is rated to be 320 kmph and the supercar completes the 0-100 kmph sprint in 3.5 seconds.
As per the company, the chassis of the Portofino has been re-designed which has resulted in a weight loss of 80 kg. The chassis is 35% stiffer and has better torsional rigidity. The Portofino gets a new wind deflector design that helps in cutting down the airflow inside the cabin by up to 30% when compared to the California T. The Portofino is also the first model in Ferrari’s GT range to get an electro-mechanical steering assembly with a quad exhaust setup.
