The launch of the 2015 Ferrari California T presents a powerful model with a front-mounted engine, grand touring and hardtop convertible that is the least expensive in the Italian manufacturer’s portfolio. The new California T design has undergone immense changes. However, it still showcases a striking and four-door sports car. Sharper lines complement a unique crispness to the outside and new comfy make the conjecture of lengthy cruises on the highway irresistible. With hosts of new updates and an overly aggressive style, the new California is poised to appeal Ferrari fans and become the automakers’ best seller. 

Newer features on the exterior start from the angular grille marked by snarling contours of the sideway intake vents, above; headlamps are angular, twin scalloped indentations and stretch to the creased finders. Side vent sharp lines strand rearward to near the rear fender but break adjacently to allow a neutral room for the door paddle. At the rear, you will note a revised lower air diffuser with triple larger fins and paralleled quad exhaust pipes. The alloy wheels are dark-grey with yellow middle cap and a retractile hardtop that packs easily in the cargo compartment.

The exterior refinements are continued inside, the cabin looks well pronounced in terms of design with a brand new multiple-function steering wheel with handy controls.

This engine generates a potent 560 ponies and 557 lb-ft of torque, the car will attain the 62 mph from naught in merely 3.6 seconds. It is a replacement of the 4.3-liter V8 that served up 460 horsepower and 357 lb-ft of twist. Like in previous models, the engine is stacked very low, away from the front axle to give a low gravity center and impeccable weight distribution percentage. To infuse handling abilities innate in Ferrari models, the cars received substantial steering revisions but the suspension remains unchanged.
