New Ferrari California Coming with Twin-Turbo V8

Set to be unveiled in the spring.

It's no secret that Ferrari will make the California the first turbocharged Prancing Horse since the F40, but now more details have come to light. According to Motor Trend, sources in Maranello claim the 2015 California will be powered by a twin-turbo V8, similar in design to Maserati's unit but with all-Ferrari components. There's no word on whether the California will get more than Maserati's 523 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque, but it will certainly improve upon the current model's free-breathing V8's figures of 483 hp and 372 lb-ft.

Aside from a new engine, the next Ferrari California will get new body panels and updated interior to augment the folding hardtop aluminum-bodied roadster. An all-new navigation and infotainment system will replace the current setup, perhaps borrowing corporate cousin Chrysler's Uconnect system, albeit with a new skin. A debut is scheduled for spring, so expect the new Ferrari California to be unveiled at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show before hitting showrooms at the end of the year.
