The Ferrari California was first publicly showcased at the Paris Motor Show in 2008 with seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and a folding metal roof; it certainly caused a splash.

Your LivTours Drive a Ferrari in Italy Experience starts in Maranello where you will meet your professional driver who will be your copilot during your test drive. Once you feel comfortable in this powerful vehicle, you can throw some caution to the wind and let that foot sink into the ground. Hold on to your hats as you soar from zero to sixty in approximately four seconds (yes, just 4!).
During your test drive an internal go-pro camera will be filming you taking those exciting turns and speeding along through the countryside. Before you leave Maranello, you will receive a copy of your drive on a high definition DVD. Certainly an unrivaled souvenir to take home with you and share with friends! There really is no better way to commemorate your visit and share this once in a lifetime experience.
After you have finished your Ferrari California test drive, you get up to 15 minutes in a Formula 1 Simulator, the same kind that is used by professional F1 drivers in training. This virtual reality experience will give you a great sense of how pro Ferrari drivers feel while roaring around race tracks.
