Ferrari is Still Working to Convince Everyone About Turbocharging

Supercar

Is the California T more than just a pretty body?

Times are changing and Ferrari is adapting to them by switching from a lineup of naturally aspirated engines to turbocharging. Blame bike-riding tree huggers. The first new model to make the switch is the California T, which is powered by a twin-turbo 3.9-liter V8 that’s good for 552 horsepower and 557 lb-ft of torque. For those who didn’t already know, the California T is the first turbo'd road car Ferrari since the iconic F40. Now, we know some are apprehensive about the engine technology change.

However, Ferrari has promised that its turbocharging technology is top notch. And it happens to sound pretty darn good too. Just take this new Ferrari-produced video, for example. Ferrari’s head of development takes the California T out for a spin on the streets and mountain roads of Monaco. Where else?
