Officially the Ferrari California will make its world debut at the Paris Motor Show next month, but that doesn't mean a select audience couldn't get a glimpse of the model in advanced. Last night the Italian sportscar maker unveiled the model simultaneously in two locations: Maranello and Los Angeles, each venue holding 1000 specially invited guests.

Current Ferrari F1 drivers Kimi Raikkonen and Felipe Massa were on hand to help with the launch along with former F1 star Michael Schumacher who had a heavy hand in the development of the model.

The California slots in at the bottom of the Ferrari portfolio just below the Scaglietti 612, it is powered by new 460 hp 4.3-Liter V8 Engine placed in the mid-front position of the car and features direct fuel injection and a “flat” crankshaft. Iut is mated to a brand new seven-speed dual-clutch transmission system which enables the California to launch from 0-60mph in less than 4 seconds.

Head on over to the the Ferrari California website to see a video of the unveiling for yourself.
