Ferrari California T is Expected to be a Topless Turbo Turismo
As expected by the followers, Ferrari has officially unveiled the latest version of their front-engine California Grand Tourer, shortly ahead of the car’s debut in the upcoming Geneva Motor Show. The headline news about the new version is, as highly longed, it will be the new 3.9-liter turbocharged V8 engine under the hood. Ferrari had also promised zero turbo lag from this innovative engine, which is capable of releasing 560 horsepower and also 557 pound-feet of torque.Photo 1: FERRARI
It is 70 more horses than the last released California, which when coupled with a 49% additional torque, allows the latest California T to go from 0-62 mph in just 3.6 seconds, which is an amazing figure to be admired. On the other hand fuel efficiency is also getting enhanced by 15 percent, and emissions are cut down to another 20 percentage. Also, to make it more worth, Ferrari is promising that “it will have the most exhilarating soundtrack as well as turbo, which has ever yielded." which sound pretty reassuring to the buyers.
There are more elements of interest too, besides the all-new turbocharged engine as retractable hardtop, which will smoothly covert the four-seater into a convertible in just 14 seconds and also improved steering response, reduced pitch and roll as well as the carbon-ceramic brakes. There are a lot to tell about exterior styling of 250 Testa Rossa-inspired, combined with the Ferrari Styling Center with assistance from Pininfarina.Photo 2: Ferrari California T is Expected to be a Topless Turbo Turismo
There is also a latest Engineer screen with Turbo Performance, which is coupled with a 6.5” infotainment system mounted on to the front panel. There are much to discuss about the interior styling as far as the cabin and the increased room are being concerned; however, a little more waiting is appreciated until the debut is being happening in the Geneva Motor Show in the month of March.
