Ferrari California T Captured in the Metal

First videos of the latest creation from Maranello have arrived.

With just a few weeks to go until its public unveiling at the Geneva Motor Show, Ferrari has served up a pair of videos of the new California T. 800 select guests were given the chance to check out Maranello's latest creation, with Ferrari combining styling elements from both the FF and F12 Berlinetta in its comprehensive overhaul of the California. Don't call it this in front of a Ferrari exec, but the “entry-level” Fezza has a new 552-hp turbocharged V8, which helps it sprint from 0-62 mph in 3.6 seconds on to a top speed of 196 mph.

Thanks to the turbo, more power is coupled with a 15 percent reduction in fuel consumption and a 20 percent decline in CO2 emissions. The turbo also helps boost torque from 372 lb-ft in the California to 557lb-ft in the T. Often the area to draw most criticism, the back end is now an attractive proposition thanks to a new triple-fence rear diffusor.

Pininfarina has also helped Ferrari sharpen up the 2+2's exterior with a more aggressive grille and headlights that stretch back onto the wings. Other upgrades include a reworked suspension, improved F1-Trac traction control system and new carbon-ceramic brakes.
