    California arrives in Australia !

     Ferrari has received some countrywide free advertising:

    http://www.theage.com.au/national/shattering-ferrari-impounded-after-231kmh-test-20090714-djiz.html

    It occurred on one of the few good roads near Perth, popular at weekends.

    The new laws allow police to impound the car for seven days of anyone driving "recklessly" ( the "hoon" laws). Second and subsequent offences lead to 28 days impounding - repeat offenders can have their cars permanently seized or crushed.

    Notable that there are 200 Californias on order for the country, not bad for a small country during a recession. Hopefully they don't get crushed....

    the other day I saw the California in real life    It looks much much better on the pictures.  So the less you see them, the better the image will stay

    I have already seen a couple. The design, I can't get myself to like it. It is nicely looking, sure, but it doesn't have the wow factor you usually expect from a Ferrari.

    I like the sound though...

    I was just at the Ferrari dealer looking at a 16M, and some nice lady was picking up her new black California.

    I hesitate to write this;  Like Chanel is for women, Ferrari is for men. When you start mixing....... they lose something.
