Frankfurt Motor Show sees launch of Ferrari Portofino

The new Ferrari Portofino is described as the most versatile model in the range. A car designed to be driven every day - which also converts from an authentic 'berlinetta' coupé to a drop-top.

The new V8 GT is reportedly set to dominate its segment and is capable of unleashing 600cv and sprints from 0-200 km/h in 10.8 seconds.

The Ferrari Portofino features variable boost management, a control software developed by Ferrari that adjusts torque delivery to suit the gear selected. As the car goes up through the gears (from third to seventh), the amount of torque delivered by the engine increases all the way up to 760Nm. This has allowed Ferrari to adopt longer gear ratios in the higher gears, which helps keep fuel consumption and emissions down on the one hand, while adopting different torque curves through the rev range in the lower gears for a feeling of strong, continuous pickup.

Careful modelling of the retractable hard top (RHT) housing now allows the luggage compartment to hold two cabin trolleys with the roof down and three with the roof up.
