N och the Ferrari California puts on a 4th , 3-liter V8 naturally aspirated engine that generates 490 hp and 505 Nm of torque. But even the Ferrari entry-level model with the foldable hardtop, which is retained even when the model is changed, has to deal with the downsizing idea in the future. But at a high level.

Ferrari California T relies on turbo power

The naturally aspirated V8 is being replaced by the 3.8-liter engine in the Maserati Quattroporte. Even there, the eight-ender has 530 hp and 710 Nm of torque. In the Ferrari California T, where it works with a flat-plane crankshaft and a three-part cast exhaust manifold and turbo housing, the biturbo, which has been enlarged by 56 to 3,855 ccm, generates 560 hp and 755 Nm of torque. The new Ferrari California will also only drive the rear wheels and shift with a seven-speed dual clutch transmission. The dry 1,625 kg Ferrari California T should manage the sprint from zero to 100 km /h in 3.6 seconds. The maximum speed is given as 316 km /h. The standard consumption is given as 10.5 liters. A start-stop system is standard on board.

For increased driving dynamics, the Ferrari California T has a newly tuned steering, a newly tuned electronically controlled chassis and the latest generation of F1 traction control. The new brake discs of the ceramic brake system are supposed to provide more braking power.

What remains is the foldable aluminum hardtop, which can convert the Ferrari California T from a coupé to a convertible in 14 seconds at the push of a button.

Ferrari California T design has been adapted

The look of the Ferrari California T, on the other hand, has been modified significantly. At the rear, the diffuser with its three vertical fins has been redrawn.

The engine hood now takes the biturbo drive into account with two ventilation openings. The newly grilled radiator grille has become wider. The headlights now follow the shape of the Ferrari 458.

The cockpit of the Ferrari California T has also been adapted. A boost pressure indicator was fitted between the ventilation nozzles above the redesigned center console. This TPE display with a touch-sensitive surface provides not only the boost pressure, but alsofurther advertisements on the subject of performance potential. The Ferrari California T also has a new infotainment system with a 16.5 cm touchscreen. The steering wheel with its controls and shift paddles has also been completely redesigned. Plenty of leather also ensures a feel-good atmosphere. What has remained is the foldable rear seat backrest, which can also be opened when the hood is open.

The new Ferrari California T can be ordered from April. Prices start at EUR 183,499.
