German tuner Anderson does the Ferrari California

Anderson is a German based tuning specialist for exotic cars and they have just released pictures of their styling and performance package for Ferrari’s entry level Grand Tourer, the California.

The tuning aspect of the upgrade is limited to tweaking the ECU and a valve controlled stainless steel exhaust system that offers three different modes. I suppose the modes are Loud, Louder and Heavenly when it comes to noise the exhaust makes as well as altering the throttle response and power of the California. The two mods allows the 4.3liter V8 engine to make 508bhp, which is a good 55bhp more than standard. This would be good as 500bhp seems to be a figure that some very fast 4 door sedans have. (like the AMG C63 and the Audi RS6 which actually have more than 500bhp up their sleeves)

The Düsseldorf based tuner’s styling kit for the California consists of an addition of a whole lot of carbon fiber bits. There is carbon fiber to the bonnet, front spoiler, side skirts, rear diffuser and rear bumper. The Anderson Ferrari California also has darkened rear lights that seem to go well with the black carbon bits and the white paintwork of the demonstrator car shown in the pictures.

As for handling (but still more towards style as these are really large rims) the California sits on 21inch wheels up front and 22inch at the rear. The suspension has adjustable dampers and springs that allow the California to be dropped by 35mm. It can also be raised by 40mm if anyone is interested in owning a Ferrari semi-SUV.

The interior has not be left out. Anderson proposes that more carbon be added. This includes trim around the air vents, center console, door handles, steering wheel and those flappy gear pedals behind the steering wheel.

As usual, no prices were announced in their press release.
