    I'm thinking of Ferrari's own press video.

    Is that a cup holder in the center console?

    Actually, this photo, along with a few others, came from Kimi Raikkonen's Facebook!

    Very strange that they are not using the U-connect multimedia from the Chrysler group (of course tweaked to Ferrari's needs) as it is arguably one of the best in the market: Spotlight On: Chrysler Uconnect | New and Used Car Reviews, Research & Automotive-Industry News & LeftLaneNews

    It also has a much larger screen at 8.4 inches, compared to the small 6.5 inch screen...

    It could be the same system but with a smaller screen am I wrong? It doesn't mention anywhere what system they have put in the car.

    IMO 6.5 inch screen is more than enough in a Ferrari as long as it works very well

    It seems like Ferrari only mentions Bridgestone and Pirelli as tyres partners for the California T. Does anyone know if Michelin was part of the partners for the previous ones or other Ferrari?
    Michelin SSP seems the tyre of choice for most people so I am pretty surprised about this.

    I noticed the same thing yesterday but forgot to mention it. The car on the pictures sits on Pirelli tires, although I can't read the designation on them...

    I was surprised that Michelin wasn't mentioned, considering their great work on the tires for the 458 Speciale.

    I've not heard of this tire, what is a "Michelin SSP"?

    {or was it just a typo? and you meant MPSS?]

    Congratulation Ferrari. Congratulations to the team of Enrico Galiera.
    What a great presentation. A visit to the homeland of the prancing horse
    is always a highlight.

    The California T is a real positive evolution and it will be another benchmark.
    The new front is particularly my favorite.

    Now comes the hard part and choosing the color/configuration.

    Did anyone who was in Modena manage to get any VIN numbers on either of the cars exhibited?
