Video: Ferrari California tested in the snow

This is a short new promotional video of the Ferrari California drifting on snow and ice. Despite the car being rear wheel drive, the test driver keeps it under control. Proves that any Ferrari California or Ferrari for that matter, can be driven in the snow with the right skill. No need to have a 4WD like in the Ferrari FF.

The Ferrari California has a 454hp/4.3L V-8 engine, with a Seven-Speed dual-clutch automated manual transmission. It’s important to note this is the first Ferrari with a front engined V-8, where as the majority of the marquee’s vehicles have the engine mounted in the middle. The car is 2+2 configuration, meaning it can seat 4 people. It can accelerate to 0-60mph in 3.4 seconds. The top speed is 193mph. It is estimated that over 60% of buyers to the Ferrari California are new to the brand. Most are rumored to be sold out for 2011.

The video was shot in the mountain town of Saint Moritz, Switzerland, where there are over 300 days of sunshine every year, making it an ideal location for tourists looking to ski, snowboard, or participate in other snow activities. Many athletes come to Saint Moritz for high altitude training. The town hosts St. Moritz Match Race which is held on the lake right next to the town. The St. Moritz Match Race event is part of the famed World Match Racing Tour. The Tour extends over 3 continents, and sailing teams come from all over the world compete in Sailing Duels. The mountain town even hosted the Winter Olympics in 1928, and again in 1948.
