Ferrari launched its least expensive model, the California T. Now, even this is the least of the Ferraris it doesn’t mean that becomes something of a ‘turn off.’ Quite the contrary, as it California T houses a V8 engine capable of great horsepower and torque.
Exterior and Interior
Now, before inspecting what’s inside the hood, let’s check the exterior and interior factors first. As seen in the picture, you have a rather plane and ‘car next-door’ looking of an automobile. Don’t let looks deceive you as you will be constantly reminded that it is a certified Ferrari due to its horse emblem decorating the very center of the grille. The convertible also flashes the stellar design on its wheels.
California T may not look as flashy as it siblings but its interior cabin screams premium from the dashboard, steering wheel and seats. It’s toned down but very comfortable and elegant at the same time.
Engine, Transmission and Price
Here’s our favorite part: what lurks behind that classy hood of the legendary roadster. The 3.9L twin-turbo V8 together with 7-speed dual clutch transmission can summon a whopping 552hp and 557 lb.-ft. of torque. Since you’re talking about speed here—something that could be thrilling and wicked at the same time—might as well know that the automobile comes with carbon ceramic brakes. This is one factor that makes a huge difference in playing car safety for roadsters made to zoom all the way.
