Ferrari Announces Lineup for 2011 Goodwood Festival of Speed

This year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed is approaching fast, and Ferrari decided it was time to reveal the goodies it has prepared for the event. The Italian manufacturer’s new FF GT sports car will be making its UK debut, accompanied by the front engined V8 California and the mid-rear mounted 458 Italia.

Ferrari will also be represented by the Scuderia Ferrari team who will be demonstrating the 2009 F1 car, driven by Marc Gene (TBC), throughout the weekend, while examples of the brand’s racing heritage can be seen in the Cathedral Paddock.

Taken separately, the new Ferrari FF is a four-seat, four-wheel-drive V12 car, powered by a new 6,262cc direct injection engine which develops 660hp at 8,000 rpm. Coupled with the transaxle dual-clutch F1 gearbox, the unit allows the FF to sprint to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.7 seconds.

Furthermore, the 458 Italia on display this year at the Festival of Speed will be a “bi-colore” Rosso Fuoco (dark red) car with a Nero Daytona roof (black). This car encapsulates the racing pedigree of the 458 Italia with the full carbon-fibre interior and exterior packages, including carbon-fibre rear diffuser, side sills and F1-inspired front winglets.

Finally, the Ferrari California on display at Goodwood features a “bi-colore” roof, with the car painted in Tour de France (dark blue) and the roof and A-pillars in Grigio Titanio (Silver) to echo the tradition of bi-colore berlinettas of the 1950s and 1960s. The car on display in the Supercar Paddock also features host of extra factory-fit options from the Carrozzeria Scaglietti Personalisation Programme, such as diamond-stitching on the rear seats and Cavallino stitching on the headrests.
