The Ferrari California T is a sporty, elegant, and versatile hardtop convertible with seating for four. Whether cruising around St. Louis or tearing up a winding country road, the California T is an absolute pleasure to drive. Since 1957, the first Ferrari California 250 GT was created as a grand touring sports car from Italy with the American market in mind. The shapes of the California T originated from the infamous pontoon fender of the 250 Testa Rossa. A masterful modernization of the 2008 California that retains its legendary Ferrari DNA, encountering a Ferrari California T for sale is not an opportunity to be missed!
The Ferrari California T replaces the California model in the Ferrari lineup. Its turbocharged Ferrari V8 engine, inspired by Ferrari’s Formula 1-derived technology, offers boosted performance and torque while cutting emissions by 15%. Capable of razor sharp responsiveness and blistering performance, this V8-powered prancing horse roars with an exhilarating soundtrack.
It backs up its roar with a considerable bite. The California T’s 3.8L turbocharged V8 engine produces 553 bhp @ 7,500 rpm and 557 lb-ft of torque @ 4,750 rpm, reaching a top speed of 196 mph, and its turbo technology drastically reduces emissions and fuel consumption to set a new benchmark for the industry. The torque curve increases constantly across the rev range due to the proprietary Variable Boost Management that adjusts torque delivery to suit the engaged gear. Meanwhile, the electronic systems include the latest evolution of the F1-Trac, SCM3 magnetorheological suspensions and ESP integrated with the CCM3 braking system to manage the high-performance ABS.
The result of a collaboration of the Ferrari style centre an Pininfarina, the California T is a sophisticated prancing horse with all the classic Ferrari proportions, as striking on the urban roads of Indianapolis as it is on the track.
The Ferrari California T’s front grille is aggressive and muscular, with two vents that serve to dissipate heat from the turbo engine, while the rear features new horizontal styling elements. With the top up, it’s a sports coupe; but when it’s time to open up, Ferrari’s innovative retractable hard top (or RHT) folds and stows in just 14 seconds, revealing the California T as a sleek convertible. The optimization of roof packaging allows for ample space in the cabin and luggage compartment.
Perfectly balanced, with a stiff, lightweight aluminum chassis and high-tech suspension, the California T handles with utmost precision.
The interior cable of the California T is functional, comfortable, and elegant. Ferrari styling is present on the multi-functional steering wheel, round air vents, and in the clear division between the dash and tunnel with the signature F1 bridge. The California T technology is displayed in the intuitive infotainment system and TPE (Turbo performance engineer); the TPE digital display and touch scroll is centrally located between dual air vents.
