Ferrari Portofino debuts in New Delhi in all its beauty

Happy days for the street of Delhi are here as Italian luxury car brand Ferrari launched for the first time in India, the Ferarri Portofino at an ex-showroom price of Rs 3.5 crore. It is their entry-level model and a convertible 2+2 car. The car houses a 3.9-litre twin-turbo V8 engine which is similar to the California T but has been completely reworked. The Portofino engine will now reach 600hp at 7,500 rpm and 760Nm of torque at 5,250rpm. 

The launch took place at the luxurious Shangri-La’s – Eros Hotel, Delhi. Aurelien Sauvard, Head of Marketing at Ferrari Middle East; YadurKapur, Parmeet Singh Nagar, General Manager Shangri-La’s – Eros Hotel, Delhi and Principal dealer at Select Cars, New Delhi, were among those present for the launch

Ferrari has chosen a particularly evocative name for this exceptionally versatile drop-top car. Portofino is renowned for its charming port and, over the years, has become internationally synonymous with elegance, sportiness and understated luxury. The launch colour in red of the new Ferrari has also been dedicated to this marvellous town: Rosso Portofino.

Capable of unleashing a massive 600 cv and sprinting from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds, the Ferrari Portofino is the most powerful convertible to combine the advantages of a retractable hard top, a roomy boot and generous cockpit space plus two rear seats suitable for short trips.

It's all-new chassis features a significant weight saving over the California T it replaces. It has been redesigned with a consequent reduction in weight despite an increase in torsional rigidity.

"We are very excited to launch the Ferrari Portofino in India, its an amazing GT car, it's great in performance like our other cars and it's a beautiful everyday driveable car so car lovers are going to get an amazing experience with Ferrari Portofino," says Aurelien Sauvard, Head of Marketing, Ferrari Middle East

The Portofino is a Ferrari designed to be driven every day that also effortlessly converts from an authentic ‘berlinetta’ coupé to a drop-top capable of delivering a unique Ferrari soundtrack and superb driving pleasure even in day-to-day situations. 

"We are so thrilled to have the launch of the beautiful Ferrari Portifino in our hotel. Shangri-La’s – Eros Hotel, Delhi is known for its luxurious services and its just perfect. We see it as luxury driving into luxury," says general manager Parmeet Singh Nagar.
