The Ferrari California T is an update of the earlier California featuring new sheetmetal, new interior, a revised chassis and a new turbocharged powertrain, debuting in 2014 for the 2015 model year.

First unveiled on the web on February 12, 2014, subsequently the car debuted at the Geneva Motor Show (March 6–16, 2014). The T in the moniker stands for Turbo, a technology Ferrari last used on a roadcar on the F40. The car utilizes a new 3.9 liter bi-turbo V8 that produces 552 bhp (412 kW; 560 PS) @ 7,500 rpm and 557 lbs/torque @ 4,750 rpm as well as a 7-speed dual clutch gearbox with different gear ratios, a revised magnaride’ adaptive suspension, as well as a new F1 Trac system. The car can accelerate from 0-62 mph (0-100 kmh) in 3.6 seconds and reach a top speed of 196 mph (315 km/h). The car also features a new front fascia that was influenced by the F12, a revised rear and a revised interior. Another improvement to the car is the reduction of emission pollution by 15% compared to its naturally aspirated predecessor. The car also utilizes small turbos and a variable boost management system to create no turbo lag.

It is also the first car in which Ferrari has introduced the new Apple CarPlayfunctionality into its built-in infotainment system – Apple confirmed at the launch of the Geneva Motor Show that Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz and Volvo would be among the first car manufacturers to bring CarPlay compatible models to market.

Let me say I think this is not the best looking car and the California name is sullied by this poseur mobile. Someone paid close to half a million for one of only 5 manual transmission California’s. It’s still a California lol. Anyway Kyosho has done a fantastic job with this car paint graphics chrome it’s all what we are all used to getting. The black California is a “OEM” lol I think but it could also could just be the initial California. Yeah still worth having in the stable but not a car I would ever want in real life.
