Ferrari's newest entry in the sports car field is also its first open front-engine car in several years. The 2010 California is a convertible that looks as good with its retractable hardtop up as it does down. The California is loaded with technology that has trickled down from Ferrari's ultra-successful Formula One racing program, and it influences many aspects of the car's performance. The direct-injection 4.3-liter V8 puts 460 hp to the rear wheels through a dual-clutch 7-speed transmission, and according to Ferrari, the car is capable of running 0 to 62 mph in less than 4.0 seconds on its way to a 193-mph top speed.
