Ferrari California T prices start at Rs. 3.45 Crore (ex-showroom, New Delhi). Ferrari California T is avialable in 1 variants and 19 colours – Verde British, Rosso Scuderia, Rosso Mugello, Rosso Fiorano, Rosso Dino, Rosso Corsa, Rosso California, Nero Daytona, Blu Tour De France, Blu Swaters, Blu Scozia, Blu Pozzi, Blu Mirabeau, Blu California, Blu Abu Dhabi, Bianco Avus, Azzurro California, Avorio and Argento Nurburgring.

The California T is a brilliant expression of Ferrari’s sporty DNA, while its retractable hard top (RHT) and 2+ configuration, amongst other features, make it supremely versatile.

Like all Ferraris, the California T boasts cutting-edge technological solutions that make it absolutely unique, most notably the new turbocharged V8 engine. Turbo technology has an honourable place in Prancing Horse’s engineering tradition, thanks to iconic models of the likes of the GTO of 1984 and the F40 of 1987. It is now also, of course, back at the heart of our latest F1 single-seater.

BRILLIANT EXPRESSION OF FERRARI’S DNA

Maranello’s engineers have managed to design a remarkable power unit that combines classic Ferrari engine qualities, such as razor-sharp responsiveness, blistering performance, superbly powerful acceleration at all speeds and an exhilarating soundtrack, with the advantages turbo technology, such as drastically reduced emissions and fuel consumption, a high specific power output and compact dimensions. A genuinely unprecedented achievement that sets a new benchmark for the industry.

The 3855 V8 punches out 560 CV (145 CV/l, the best figure in its category) and maximum torque of 755 Nm in 7th gear. Despite delivering an extra 70 CV and a massive 49% more torque, fuel consumption has fallen by 15%. Range has increased by 20% in consequence. Turbo lag has also been virtually eliminated by cutting overall masses and inertia, and the use of the F1-derived flat-plane crankshaft and innovative twin-scroll turbines. The torque curve increases constantly across the rev range too, thanks to proprietary Variable Boost Management software that adjusts torque delivery to suit the gear engaged. Clever design and manufacturing techniques have also produced a classically powerful, exhilarating Ferrari soundtrack too.

FERRARI CALIFORNIA T EXTERIOR

CLASSIC FERRARI PROPORTIONS

The California T boasts classic Ferrari proportions: the shape of its flanks is inspired, in fact, by the 250 Testa Rossa’s famous pontoon-fender styling, with the front wing line stretching back towards the compact, muscular rear and bringing an aerodynamic sleekness and movement to the sides.

A generous grille lends the car an aura of power and sportiness too while the sleek bonnet emphasises the muscular wings either side which incorporate the headlights and the two characteristic vents used to dissipate hot air from the engine. The rear features new horizontal styling elements and was subject to intensive aerodynamic honing resulting in a new triple-fence diffuser.

FERRARI CALIFORNIA T CABIN

COMFORT AND FUNCTIONALITY

The California T’s cabin is a seamless melding of innovative volumes, streamlined, functional forms and a strong Ferrari feel courtesy of certain classic Prancing Horse styling cues, such as the clear division between the dash and tunnel, round air vents, multi-functional steering wheel and the signature F1 bridge on the tunnel. All presented as a beautifully elegant hand-crafted package focusing on sophisticated materials and finishes whilst also being superbly functional.

The Turbo Performance Engineer (TPE) takes pride of place between the two air vents at the centre of dash. This is a sophisticated instrument with a digital display and touch-sensitive surround for scrolling that provides pointers on making the most effective use of the new engine’s performance in terms of responsiveness and efficiency. The California T also has a new highly intuitive infotainment system designed for easy navigation and instant access to the other functionalities.
