TopGear.com.ph Philippine Car News - Ferrari shows off the lighter, more powerful California

Last month at the Geneva Motor Show, Ferrari revealed an enhanced version of its California, with the upgrades coming in the form of new exhaust manifolds and revised engine mapping. According to Ferrari, these new treatments to the California bumped up the numbers of its 4.3-liter V8 engine to 490hp and 505Nm while reducing its weight by 30kg.

It's been a month since the motor show and Ferrari has now put up a video of the revised California being put through its paces "along the same routes as the Prancing Horse test-drivers and engineers that developed it." While the California may be the most affordable Ferrari in the Italian carmaker's current lineup, we imagine it's still many million pesos more expensive than your usual Japanese or Korean car so we'll just have to content ourselves with this video.
