During the launch of the Ferrarri Portofino, our focus was on the announcement that Dennis Uy was as Autostrada Motore’s newest investor. Now, Let’s check out the actual car.
We’ve already driven the Portofino in Dubai a few months back, and we were thoroughly impressed. Our former test-drive editor Jason Dela Cruz had this to say: “It’s still a retractable hardtop but looks like two cars in one—a fastback coupe and an elegant spider. The headlights are slimmer and more swept back (which sort of bring to mind the 365 Daytona’s front end), the rear more dynamic with a tapered spoiler and sharper taillights. On the sides, triangular grooves result in triangular flanks, for the sake of style and aero. And the name? It’s named after a village on the Italian Riviera best known for its scenic harbor. La dolce vita!”
Under the hood of this GT is a front mid-mounted 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8 derived from the V8 line that won the International Engine of the Year awards in 2016 and 2017. It now delivers 592hp and 760Nm, making the Portofino the fastest Ferrari convertible to date.
