Surfista Silver Star.
The newest car to undergo a transformation by DMC Exotic Car Tuning Limited is the Ferrari California. Instead of some flamboyant aero package, the German tuner kept the bodywork to a minimum and focused on creating a thunderous amount of power that turns it into one hot drop-top.
The aerodynamic kit for the DMC 3S Ferrari California is rather subtle. The car was nicknamed “3S” or “Sufista Silver Star” due to the silver carbon fiber that DMC Exotic Car Tuning used to fabricate the body kit. Each piece was designed to conform to the Ferrari California’s design and body shape, and was thoroughly tested in a wind tunnel. The front bumper features a new silver carbon fiber splitter to reduce lift at the front axle. The rear of the California was given a silver carbon fiber diffuser to help keep the car planted on the asphalt and a silver carbon fiber insert was installed on the stock apron.
DMC Exotic Car Tuning also installed a new set of staggered wheels to complement the silver carbon fiber aerodynamic bodywork. The front axle was fitted with a set of ADV1 9J x 21 wheels while the rear was given a pair of 11.5J x 22 wheels with corresponding performance tires.
Although the aerodynamic kit on the DMC Ferrari California 3S is rather quiet in terms of style, the engine is a horsepower monster. The 4.3-liter V-8 engine was fitted with a pair of turbochargers, larger fuel injector nozzles, and a tailor-made crankshaft. The exhaust was also replaced with a full T309 stainless steel unit featuring 200-cell catalytic converters, new X-pipe, and driver-controlled valve system. The result of the modifications is a whopping 598 horsepower, dropping the 0-62 mph acceleration time down to 3.9 seconds and raising the top speed to 202 mph (325 km/h).
The DMC Exotic Car Tuning Ferrari California 3S will be showcased at the Top Marques Macau Show from November 24th to 27th. Pricing and availability of the car and the DMC Ferrari products have not been released.
