0=100 3.7 V 3.9 according to Wikipedia.

I would have thought the gap was more than that .....

added - that cant be right ?

It can't possibly be, just look at to the power to weight ratios.

California 1750kg + and 450 hp
599 is 1690KG with 620 hp and does 0-100 mph in 7.8 secs

Whatever the difference and i'm sure it would be in line with the specs I still cant see the Cali as a womans car, no matter how much money the family has got stick her in a C Class :D

She doesn't give a stuff about cars and treats them accordingly. She is in a 5yr old X3 because I can't bear to see a good car treated like a rubbish tip.

They're not really car people so unless they are "seriously"into cars why on earth would you put them in a Cali

I'll tell you .....some people have too much money and no sense of style.

I said:

I wouldn't buy the California if it was $50k. Well maybe I would at $50k for the wife; but if I did I sure as hell wouldn't be interested in driving it"

In other words it would have to be $50k before I would buy one and if I did it would be for the wife. These days $50k isn't much for a car............. in fact it's about half of a new top model BMW X3.

Wasn't referring to you, just generally.

Seen a few, saw seen roof in action too, it's a work of art the way that thing works.

Never thought of it as poofy, next to the 599 it looks tame but what doesnt.

Still cant see it as feminine.

Yeah, first time I saw one was on the road....and i didn't think much of its looks....
The next time I saw one it was parked next to a 430 scuderia and a 458...... And from then on, I haven't changed my view of them.....
