The new California T brims with a host of new solutions, not least of which
is its 8-cylinder turbo engine, bringing fifty percent more torque and fifteen
percent lower consumption. Maranello's engineers have created an entirely new
power unit which delivers absolutely superb levels of performance, blistering
pick-up and the most exhilarating soundtrack any turbo has ever yielded.
The Ferrari California T epitomizes elegance, sportiness, versatility and exclusivity: characteristics that have distinguished every California model since the 1950s.
The California T boasts striking standards of innovation while retaining signature features such as the successful 2+ concept, a refined cabin and, of course, the retractable hard top (RHT) which transforms it from a chic coupé into a sleekly sophisticated spider in a mere 14 seconds.
Ferrari promises zero turbo lag, guaranteeing instantaneous response to commands and, as with naturally-aspirated power units, a torque curve that increases constantly across the rev range thanks to Variable Boost Management.
The California T will be unveiled at the Geneva International Motor Show in March. Its two launch colors are Rosso California, an intense, deep new red inspired by classic Ferraris, and Blu California, which underscores the versatility and elegance of this new model.
California T's Exterior: Individual Personality
Considerable attention was paid to the design, maintaining the outgoing model's overall dimensions while ensuring that the California T has a new, individual personality. The sleek proportions were penned by the Ferrari Styling center in collaboration with Pininfarina and are very much in keeping with the Ferrari front-engined ethos. 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, bringing an aerodynamic sleekness and movement to the sides. The rear benefits from meticulous aerodynamic research resulting in a new triple-fence diffuser.
