The Ferrari Portofino M: A Constantly Evolving Story
The Ferrari Portofino M, which features the legendary ‘M’ suffix, for Modificata, in its name, is the evolution of the Ferrari Portofino. The new Prancing Horse 2+ spider boasts a slew of new technical and design features, most notably an 8-speed dual-clutch gearbox and a five-position Manettino, an absolute first for a Ferrari GT convertible. Every drive aboard the Ferrari Portofino M is a voyage of (re)discovery.
The Ferrari Portofino M’s engine belongs to the V8 turbo family voted “International Engine of the Year” on four consecutive occasions. The power unit can punch out 620 cv, 20 more than the Ferrari Portofino, thanks to new cam profiles and the introduction of a new speed sensor on the turbocharger assembly to measure the turbine revolutions. A new Gasoline Particulate Filter allows the car to comply with the strictest European anti-pollution standards (Euro-6D) without compromising driving pleasure.
FIVE MODES, ENDLESS EMOTION
The aim of the five-position Manettino, a first on a Prancing Horse GT spider, is to make the Ferrari Portofino M’s handling and grip even more accessible by extending the setting ranges still further with the addition of the Race position. Supported by the introduction of the Ferrari Dynamic Enhancer, that position focuses on maximising driving pleasure.
Sporty and elegant, the dual identity of the car is particularly evident in its exterior, where the front, side and rear sections form part of a single, sculptural structure, as well as its passenger compartment, the shape and finishes of which establish a clear, coherent link with the great tradition sof ferrari GT cars.
The Ferrari Portofino M’s multi-level dashboard comprises an upper half and then an intermediate gap designed to lighten the perceived mass of the lower half. This breaking up of the dash into different levels allowed the designers to organise the in-car devices to very rational effect while simultaneously defining its signature full-width architecture. A central horizontal aluminium blade divides the separate areas in the upper section. The other control functions are located in the scooped section below, with a 10.25” touchscreen at the centre. The interior and dashboard architecture features two shells incorporating all of the technical components and a bridge that visually connects the instrument panel area with the central tunnel to boost passenger involvement.
