Ferrari California to get manual option and HGTC handling package

The 2009 Ferrari California is ready to make its public debut at the 2008 Paris Motor Show this October. We’ll get our first stateside look at the 2008 LA Auto Show in November. But before the Ferrari California hits markets next year, Ferrari will add some options.

According to EVO magazine, the 10 percent of Ferrari customers still want a manual transmission – so of course, Ferrari will offer its customers what they want. Before the California goes on sale next year, Ferrari will add a manual option along with a new HGTC handling package that is offered on the 612 Scaglietti. Th HGTC handling package will give the 460-hp Ferrari California lightweight wheels and upgraded suspension.

Hmm, we’re wondering what a Ferrari California Scuderia will look like.
