Ferrari California T Performance

The Ferrari California T is the latest iteration of the distinguished California line. Ever since meeting the road in 1950’s, the Ferrari California nameplate has become renowned for its blend of sporty performance, elegance, and versatility. The California T doubles down on every attribute.

Using a V8 engine to deliver up to 553 hp @ 7,500 rpm and 557 lb-ft of torque @ 4,750 rpm enables it to achieve a top speed of 196 mph.

458 Italia Performance

The 458 is a legend in its own time. The vehicle has achieved more than 30 international awards — including “Best Performance Engine” and “Best Engine Above 4 Litres” from the International Engine of the Year Awards.
