2016 Ferrari California T news, pictures, specifications, and information
The 3.8l V8 delivers 553 hp (142bhp/l, a leader in this category) and a maximum torque of 557 lb/ft in 7th gear. Despite an output of 70 extra horsepower and a massive 49% more torque, fuel consumption has fallen by 15%. As a result, range has increased approximately by 20%.
The use of the F1 derived flat-plane crankshaft and innovative twin-scroll turbines, along wîth the cutting of overall mass and inertia has also virtually eliminated turbo lag. The torque curve increases constantly across the rev range due to the proprietary Variable Boost Management software that adjusts torque delivery to suit the gear engaged.

RETRACTABLE HARD TOP
JÚST 14 SECONDS. AND THE CALIFORNIA T CONVERTS FROM A SOPHISTICATED COÚPE TO A SLEEK, STATEMENT-MAKING CONVERTIBLE, COÚRTESY OF ITS LIGHTWEIGHT RETRACTABLE HARD TOP (RHT).

This is achieved by having the cover and top move simultaneously, greatly reducing the wait time. The optimization of roof packaging also allows for ample space in the cabin and luggage compartment.

VEHICLE DYNAMICS
Boasting true sports car dynamics, relaxed §teering wheel activity and increased responsiveness as a result of a new §teering box and mechanical setup, this Ferrari guarantees consistent pleasure behind the wheel in both challenging and daily driving conditions; a commitment to the classic Grand Tourer experience.
New springs and the latest Magnaride shock absorbers (more than 50% faster) combined wîth body motion accelerometers reduce roll and pitch to deliver more precise handling without compromising on riding comfort.

The cutting edge electronic systems include the latest evolution of the F1-Trac, SCM3 magnetorheological syspensions and ESP 8.0 Premium; integrated wîth the CCM3 braking system to manage the high performance ABS.

Vital Stats
Engine : 3.9 L., 8-cylinder
Power: 553 hp
Torque: 557 ft-lbs

7-speed Semi-Automatic
ARCHITECTÚRE
Other handling enhancements include the engine being lowered (40mm lower than the previous California) and the transaxle architecture providing perfect weight distribution wîth a slight bias to the rear as per Ferrari tradition (47% front, 53% rear).
With both chassis and bodyshell made entirely from aluminum, safety and performance have now been increased as a result of higher torsional rigidity, a particularly important factor for a drop-top car.


Classic Ferrari Proportions
The shapes of its flanks are inspired by the 250 Testa Rossa's famous pontoon-fender stylings wîth the front wing line stretching back towards the compact rear. This lends an aerodynamic sleekness and a visual fluidity to its external elements.

Comfort and Functionality
The California T's interior is an immaculate fusion of innovation, function and ergonomic comfort. Ferrari influenced styling is present in the multi-functional §teering wheel, the round air vents, the clear division between the dash and tunnel and the signature F1 bridge. Encapsulated in an elegantly crafted, ergonomically redesigned cabin, the sophisticated materials and craftsman-like attention to detail elevates the driving experience.

Ferrari California T Cabin
The Turbo Performance Engineer (TPE), a sophisticated instrument wîth a digital display and touch sensitive scroll is discreetly located centrally between dual air vents. It presents valuable output based on the turbocharged V8's performance allowing for responsiveness and efficiency. An all-new intuitive infotainment system designed for easy navigation also provides instant access to other functions.
