There’s just something about contrasting colors that makes some cars look even sportier than they normally are. Some might claim that the beautiful yet not so aggressive looking Ferrari Portofino, could use that type of “touch”.
This particular model, spotted by Fraka in Milan, Italy, is wrapped in Matte Red, with contrasting black surfaces such as the roof, rear fascia, as well as sections of the hood as well as its profile.
Normally, Ferrari makes sure customers can choose between multiple shades of red when it comes to their cars, such as Rosso Scuderia, Rosso Corsa, Rosso Mugello, Rosso Dino, Rosso Fiorano and of course, Rosso Portofino. However, you could argue that none of them look as interesting as the color combo seen here.
Looks aside, if this Portofino is stock, then it has 600 PS (592 HP) and 760 Nm (560 lb-ft) of torque to play with, courtesy of a twin-turbo 3.9-liter V8 unit, the same as in the older California T, only more powerful.
In a straight line, it can hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.5 seconds, before maxing out at 320 km/h (199 mph), which are some extremely impressive figures for a sleek little 2+2 GT convertible. It may not be as quick around the track as its more expensive siblings, but for a daily cruiser, it performs really well – something Ferrari was really aiming for.
