The 2015 Ferrari California T was recently unveiled at the Geneva Motor show with some significant changes over the previous model when it comes to power. For the first time since the Ferrari F40, a turbocharged engine has found its way under the hood of a Ferrari. This is the first of many models expected from Ferrari to include turbocharged engines.
The 2015 Ferrari California T will have a smaller displacement of a 3.9-liter V8 versus the previous model’s 4.3-liter naturally aspirated engine. With this smaller displacement comes a huge power boost in the form of a twin-turbocharged V8 engine that produces 552 hp and 557 lb-ft of torque, an increase of 69 horsepower and 185 lb-ft of torque over the previous California. This new turbocharged engine is likely to be paired with the currently used seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. Ferrari claims the California T will accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 3.6 seconds with a top speed of 196 mph.
Additional upgrades for the 2015 Ferrari California T include an upgrade to the steering, suspension, and braking systems. The 2015 Ferrari California T will have a new steering box, new springs, and the latest-generation Magnaride suspension. New carbon-ceramic brakes have been added to the California T that Ferrari Says can bring the California to a stop from 60 mph in just 111 feet.
