Feast Your Eyes On The Stunning New Ferrari Portofino

Ferrari unveils Portofino as successor to California

Instead, the new drop top's looks are a collaboration between Ferrari's in-house design and aerodynamics teams.

Although Ferrari hasn't released an official weight figure for the new auto, the Portofino is due to be significantly lighter than the California T's 1729kg kerb weight. "Ferrari has named its new convertible GT auto, and its launch colour, Rosso Portofino, after one of Italy's most handsome towns".

Italian sportscar maker Ferrari (RACE) on Wednesday introduced its new entry level model, the Ferrari Portofino, replacing its California T. The cabin gets some more comfort-focused features, like a new AC system meant to do better with the hard-top up or down, 18-way electrically-adjustable seats with a new backrest shape to improve rear legroom, and a new wind deflector that promises 30-percent less air flow when fitted. There's the third-generation of the brand's e-diff, which is created to maximise traction and grip through corners, while electric power steering is claimed to cut fuel consumption yet not rob feel at the wheel. The magnetorheological damping system (SCM-E) has been uprated with dual-coil technology to improve ride quality while at the same time reducing body roll in the corners. This helps the supercar go from zero to 62mph in 3.5sec and on to a top speed of "more than 199mph".

United States extends sanctions against North Korea
Among 10 companies sanctioned, five were based in China, one in Russian Federation and two each in Singapore and Namibia. In July, China bought no coal from North Korea, the fifth month after Beijing halted coal shipments in February.

Named after the picturesque fishing village on the Italian Riviera coastline, near Genoa, the all-new vehicle has some big shoes to fill as the replacement for Ferrari's best-seller, the California T.

Ferrari has not revealed how much lighter the Portofino is than the California, which tipped the scales at 1625kg.

Despite all that extra grunt Ferrari claims it's the chassis that's received most changes, with promises of significant weight savings (the California weighed over 1.6-tonnes) and rear-biased 46:54 weight distribution.

Have Sarah Harding and Chad Johnson had SEX in the CBB house?!
The official couple then started to cosy up on the smoking area as if nothing had happened. She continued: "You're taking me for granted and you're not listening to my advice".

The Portofino coincides with Ferrari's 70th-anniversary year.

Premiere of the Ferrari Portofino received the 600-horsepower 3.8-liter twin-turbo motor, will take place in September.

Inside, the biggest news is one that would likely see Enzo himself turning 7,500 rpm in his grave: a new 10.2-inch touchscreen infotainment display mounted in the center of the dashboard.

Kansas State ranked 20th in AP preseason poll
Georgia is the highest-ranked SEC East team in the AP poll, albeit barely: Florida is No. 17 and Tennessee is No. 25. So, while the Buckeyes came in ahead of the Seminoles in the top 25, FSU actually received more first-place votes.
