The Ferrari Portofino Grand Tourer replaces the California in the Ferrari lineup. It takes its name from the famous village of that name on the Italian Riviera. It’s powered by a 600 horsepower, turbocharged, high-revving, 3.9-litre V8 driving through a seven-speed automatic transmission.

Portofino can reach 100 km/h from rest in 3.5 seconds, get to 200 km/h in 10.8 seconds and has a top speed of 320 km/h.

This stunning grand touring Ferrari has a retractable hardtop that can be opened or closed in just 14 seconds and on the move at low speeds.

There’s good cockpit space for two in the front, with a pair of rear seats that, to quote Ferrari are, “suitable for short trips.”


Ferrari V8 2+2 Portofino has a recommended retail of $398,888 (All these 8s in the price are presumably there to appeal to Chinese-Australian buyers!). Orders can be placed now with Australian deliveries expected in August or September.

Ferrari Australasia announced the significant expansion of its local dealer network at the premier of the new Ferrari Portofino in a spectacular event at Byron Bay.


Three new Ferrari-only showrooms in Sydney, Melbourne, and the Gold Coast take the number of Ferrari across Australia and New Zealand from six to nine.
