Ferrari S.P.A. filed a trademark application back in late 2006 which may give us a clue to the name of the new Ferrari GT car. The registration for the name FERRARI GT CALIFORNIA was approved in the US sometime in February this year.
Some other new bits of unconfirmed info – according to a report by US magazine AutoWeek, the engine mounted at the front of the new F149 will be a 4.3 litre V8 based on the F430 engine’s block, but will feature direct injection, a new throttle body, new intake designs, new cylinder head designs, and a new valvetrain.
This should be exciting for those who love to take in technical bits of info about engines, and a contender for next year’s International Engine of The Year awards.
