2020 Ferrari Portofino M

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 8-speed dual-clutch gearbox is completely new and replaces the Portofino’s 7-speed version. It is based on a dual-clutch oil bath architecture with a 20% smaller clutch module and 35% higher torque delivery. The transmission software strategy has also been evolved with a more powerful ECU. The introduction of the eighth gear and the improvement in transmission efficiency have resulted in a reduction in fuel consumption in urban and motorway contexts in addition to noticeably improving performance. By tradition, every single Ferrari has its own particular soundtrack that makes it unique. The Ferrari Portofino M is no exception. To achieve this, the geometry of the entire exhaust line was completely redesigned. The two rear silencers have been eliminated and the by-pass valves are now oval in shape. The result is that the new Prancing Horse GT 2+ spider’s engine has an even more exhilarating soundtrack with even higher sound quality. 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. 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. 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 traditions of Ferrari GT cars. The improvement in the Ferrari Portofino M’s aerodynamic performance is underscored by a slash on the front bumper that flows into the design of the flanks, lending visual harmony to the side view of the car. Thus, the signature Portofino side scallop finds its visual counterpart on the Ferrari Portofino M’s front bumper, which has been resculpted to accentuate the car’s dynamic profile. 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. The Ferrari Portofino M’s seats are the product of a special research project and have an innovative magnesium structure. Different density padding and an ultra-compact seatback profile provide space for rear occupants. Seen in plan view, this ample rear seat room is clear. Also available is three-level ventilation for the seat and backrest, and the neck warmer for use in winter months. The system constantly adapts the speed of the warm air flow from the headrest to ensure it is proportional to the car’s speed, outside temperature and the position of the retractable top.
The advanced driver assistance systems available as optionals for the Ferrari Portofino M are:
o Adaptive Cruise Control: with Stop&Go function for driving in traffic
o Automatic High Beam: automatically turns on and off high beams when driving at night
o Blind Spot Monitoring: alerts driver to vehicles in the blind spot
o Lane Departure Warning: acoustic and/or visual alert that the car has strayed out of its lane
o Predictive Emergency Brake System: alerts the driver to potential collision risks readying the car to lessen the consequences of a frontal impact
o Rear Cross Traffic Alert: warns driver of moving obstacles hidden in the car’s rear blind spot when reversing
o Surround View: with 3D display
o Traffic Sign Recognition: constantly displays the speed limits on the particular road/street vehicle is on
