Stick shift option for Ferrari California

The Ferrari California is going to have available a manual gearbox. It not only will be able to hit 62 mph in less than four seconds from standstill, but the suspension has been honed by none other than seven-time world Formula One champion, Michael Schumacher. It features such track-friendly features as a tightened suspension and carbon-ceramic brake discs. The car will also get a set of lightweight wheels.
With a 4.3 liter V-8 (set in the front of the car, as opposed to being mid-mounted like many Ferraris) and developing 454 horsepower that drives the rear wheels, the California looks like it has plenty of go to back up the show. It should reach the dealers next spring.
