California T

The Ferrari California T epitomises the sublime elegance, sportiness, versatility and exclusivity that have distinguished every California model since the 1950s. It is a car brimming with innovation that will more than meet the expectations of discerning clients for whom fun behind the wheel is a priority, but who also demand a sumptuously comfortable Grand Tourer they can use every day.

 
 

Design and Styling


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.


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.


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.



 
 

Retractable Hard Top


It takes just 14 seconds for the California T to convert from a sophisticated Coupe to a chic, seductive Spider, courtesy of its retractable hard top (RHT).


Made from aluminium panels over weight-bearing structural castings, also aluminium, the RHT also helps cut the California T’s overall weight to the bone. Both cover and top move simultaneously during the opening (or closing) cycle allowing the California T to switch personalities in an exceptionally short time. Optimisation of the roof packaging – with overlapping of the concave side - means the California T’s luggage compartment remains very generous even when the top is down, guaranteeing ample space in the cabin also.
