Ferrari California T

The Ferrari California has been the Italian brand’s most popular car ever with over 10,000 cars sold so it is no wonder why they decided to give it a revamp and continue the line. The T in Ferrari California T stands for Turbo and along with an all new front mounted V8 engine is as responsive and high revving as you might hope. Despite the smaller engine capacity, the turbo creates plenty of power and a huge amount of torque. There are suspension modifications too, which along with sharpened up steering further improve handling and keeps the drive confidence inspiring and nicely balanced.

While the Ferrari California T is easier to live with than some of the other models in the range it remains a hoot to drive and has the Ferrari thoroughbred feel buyers will demand. The interior is more comfortable and a little more spacious than before. It gets the now standard Ferrari steering wheel with a full set of controls on the front of the wheel rather on storks. The folding hardtop remains the same and works well to make the package very attractive for year-round driving. It operates quickly but only when the car is standing still.

Styling updates are subtle but together make the car even prettier while keeping up with modern styling trends. Combined the updates make the California feel renewed and makes the job of choosing your favourite super sports car even harder.
