You can't see it, but it sounds beautiful

Much of my life revolves around digital. I work for a digital agency. I use a huge amount of social networking, email and blogs. I have accounts with Flickr, Youtube, StumbleUpon, LinkedIn…… and the list goes on. The thing is, there is something in my life which I take great pleasure in, and is decidedly undigital.

I love to drive.

I don’t own a particularly fantastic car, but it’s got a bit of power and it handles like a dream. Having said that I’d be lying if I said I’ve never dreamed of sitting into the seat of high powered sports car and letting go! So when I heard the rumours about an affordable Ferrari I was bloody excited. Now lets be clear, affordable as in you'll only have to sell one of your children to pay for it instead of the usual two

Unfortunately details have been a bit sketchy. There were some fake drawings a while back. Spy shots have trickled in. A video or two. But now things are firming up. We now know that it will be called the California, or GT. It's expected to share its platform and significant chunks of running gear with similar grand tourers from Alfa Romeo and Maserati.

Still no pictures, but go to the teaser site and listen to it purr!
