The Ferrari California T (for turbo) is a mid-front-engined v8 Berlinetta with retractable hard top. Take a look at the official Ferrari video…
The new 3.8 litre turbocharged V8 is mounted very low in the chassis, delivers 560 horsepower, improving the performance with 0 to 62 mph in 3.6 seconds.
The T in its moniker refers, of course, to the development of a new 8-cylinder turbo engine that combines reduced emissions and fuel consumption with exceptional performance underscored by blistering pick-up due to zero turbo lag and a torque curve that adapts to suit each gear change.
Equally, the retractable hard top or RHT transforms the California T from a chic coupé into a sleekly sophisticated spider in a mere 14 seconds. A refined semi-aniline leather-trimmed cabin also offers the modular spaces of the signature 2+ configuration and underscores the car’s extraordinary versatility.
The shape of the California T’s flanks is inspired by the 250 Testa Rossa’s famous pontoon-fender styling, with the front wing line stretching back towards the compact, muscular rear and bringing an aerodynamic sleekness and movement to the sides. An imposing front grille and the intakes for the turbo intercooler also communicate a sense of impressive power and width. Lastly, a lean bonnet underscores muscular fenders while the rear benefits from meticulous aerodynamic research resulting in a new triple-fence diffuser.
