2019 Ferrari Portofino is a great touring sports vehicle manufactured by Italian automaker Ferrari. Ferrari Portofino is a two-door 2 + 2 hardtop convertible. The Portofino is named after the Italian Portofino village and also succeeds in the company’s previous V8 Grand Tourer, the California T. The car was unveiled at the 2017 Frankfurt motor show.
The Ferrari Portofino was unveiled on the Italian River in Portofino on 7 and 8 September 2017, where Piero Ferrari, Sergio Marchionne, Sebastian Vettel, and Giancarlo Fisichella were present. It was also on September 9 and 10 at Maranello during the Ferrari 70-year celebration. By the end of 2017, the Portofino was also placed in Asia, China, and Japan, where China is apparently a big market for the car.
In Hong Kong, the Portofino was launched at the beginning of March 2018. This is the third time in Ferrari’s history to launch a new car in the city’s prestigious Peninsula hotel. Unlike previous occasions where the vehicle launch took place in only one part of the ground floor lobby, the Portofino’s launch occupied the entire ground floor of the hotel.
There are also a few other Ferrari models parked outside the drainage area, and creative lighting with the Ferrari’s Prancing Horse logo is also projected on the hotel exterior walls. A China-spec left-hand drive model is displayed, displaying a simplified Chinese menu, scarce move for Ferrari as not all Chinese-speaking Asian regions will receive a Chinese language menu. Prices for the Portofino in Hong Kong start from HK $ 3.5M, with deliveries scheduled later this year. A proper right-hand model was seen at the city’s 488 Pista launch event in early June 2018.
2019 Ferrari Portofino Interior
The inside of the Portofino was developed after input from several clients. The rear seats have a raised legroom and the infotainment system is more advanced and easier to use, with a 10.2-inch center console screen with Apple CarPlay functionality, as in its predecessor. The air conditioning system is also refined and is now 25% faster and 50% quieter than California.
2019 Ferrari Portofino Engine
The engine, a 3,855 cc (3,9 L) F154BD double turbo V8, is the same as in the GTC4Lusso T but delivers a slightly tuned power output of 591 hp (441 kW, 599 PS) at 7,500 rpm and 560 N·m (413 ft·lb) torque at 3,000-4,250 rpm. Engine modifications include a 10% boost in the combustion chamber, revised connecting rods and pistons, and a single exhaust belt. The car retains its 7-speed dual-clutch transmission from its predecessor but features new software that enables faster gearshifts.
The exhaust system has been adapted to give the car a proper sound note while maintaining the great tournament, with an adjustable electric bypass valve that monitors the car’s sound according to the driving conditions. The 2019 Portofino can accelerate in 0 seconds from 0-100 km / h (0-62 km / h) in 3.5 seconds, 0-200 km / h (0-124 mph), and can reach a top speed of 320 km/h reach.
