What we’re most excited about is the new 3.9-liter twin-turbocharged engine that putting out a serious 553 horsepower at 7,500 rpm. The engine is paired to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission for lightning quick gear changes. Thanks to the addition of turbocharging, the California T maxes out at 557 pound-feet of torque at just 4,750 rpm. This means 0-60 mph in just 3.6 seconds and a top track speed of 196 mph. The suspension is improved, with faster dampers, a quicker steering box unit, and the latest version of Ferrari’s F1-Trac and electronic stability system; not only that, with a lower-mounted engine, the California T’s center of gravity is also lower, making its weight transfer as smooth as butter.
Despite Ferrari’s purist streak, there’s a touchscreen in this roadster and you can use Bluetooth® connectivity to stream music from your compatible smartphone, or if you’d prefer, you can connect via the USB port. There are a few things that are authentically Ferrari, too, like push-button headlights or split turn signal buttons.
Nothing says ‘Ferrari’ like a gorgeous, rich, clean interior, and that’s exactly what the California T delivers. The cockpit is elegant and sparse, with low-slung seats, it offers good passenger space, and the seats have been redesigned for more support.
