MARANELLO, Italy - Ferrari will debut its California T and 458 Speciale at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed in England over June 27-29.

The Ferrari F12 Berlinetta which made its UK debut at the 2013 Festival of Speed will share the spotlight with Ferrari’s new Grand Tourer the California T and its turbocharged V8.

Ferrari believes it's designed a power unit that combines razor-sharp responsiveness, blistering performance, superbly powerful acceleration at all speeds and an exhilarating exhaust sound with the advantages of turbo technology.


The 458 Speciale, Ferrari believes, is the first regular production Ferrari to have active aerodynamic devices on its rear diffuser and mobile aerodynamic devices at the front. Ferrari says the 458 Speciale’s performance is exceptional and claims 0-100km/h in three seconds.

Representatives of the Ferrari Formula 1 team will be there to offer demo drives of the 2009 F60 Formula 1 car by former F1 driver Pedro de la Rosa.

Ferrari F1 driver Kimi Raikkonen and former F1 driver John Surtees will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the latter’s F1 championship title in a special celebration on June 29 2014.

Each will drive their respective championship-winning car - Raikkonen his F2007 and Surtees a 1964 158 F1.
