2017 Ferrari California T
The California badge is one that goes a long way back at Ferrari and has been applied to some of the most beautiful bodies ever to roll out of Maranello. This time around, the California is also supremely practical and combines a number of cars into one. For a start, it’s a visceral, fast sports car, but at the same time, the two-plus-two layout also makes it almost sensible when you need it to be. Then there’s the folding aluminium roof which effectively gives you both a coupe and a convertible in the one package.
By 2017, Ferrari had fitted the California with its turbocharged 3.9-litre V8 engine (hence the `T’) and performance went through the roof. Those who question the value of swapping from normally-aspirated engines to turbocharged powerplants need only to look at the California T’s brutal performance combined with its vastly improved efficiency and fuel economy to see that a turbocharged future is no bad thing. And be assured this is one Ferrari that still sounds like a Ferrari.
Factory Included Options
This car has been loaded with options from the factory, including additions such as diamond-cut wheels and the `Handling Speciale’ package which brings firmer springs and extra suspension adjustability over the standard model. It also features a raft of interior enhancements including carbon-fibre steering wheel and trim pieces and yellow stitching to match the badging and brake calipers.
