Ferrari California-based 149M teased again, gets a F12berlinetta-inspired design

Article by Christian Andrei, on February 11, 2014

As you may know already, Ferrari teased the 149M Project last week and the Italian manufacturer revealed the fact that its new car will make its debut tomorrow. Ahead of its official debut, the new Ferrari is teased once again and as you can see from the photos it is clear that the sports car will follow the new design line shown by the F12berlinetta.

We already know that the new model that Ferrari is talking about is the California, as the new car is dubbed ‘149M Project’.

Ferrari California is codenamed F149, which indicates that the 149M is a modified version of the California, where ‘M’ comes from ‘Modificada’ or Italian for ‘modified’. So, expect a new version of the Ferrari California wearing a F12berlinetta-inspired design.

Still, the surprise will be under the hood, where it is expected to use a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine delivering around 550 hp, a big improvement if we take a look at the naturally aspirated 4.3-liter V8 found on the current model and capable to deliver 490 hp. The new engine is also found on the recently introduced Maserati Quattroporte.
