Ferrari’s California T is arguably the Italian luxury automaker’s most accessible and user-friendly model, says The Car Connection in a new review. In fact, the 2017 edition of the T adds additional features that are becoming more widely expected in today’s sports car, no matter how high-end and unique.
The most important change, of course, is bolted in a: new 3.9-liter twin-turbocharged engine. In the California T, it puts out 553 horsepower and is the first turbocharged powertrain offered by Ferrari since the days of the F40. It’s matched to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transaxle. The engine’s variable boost management system lets it increase torque output with each subsequent transmission gear, maxing out at 557 pound-feet of torque.
The T model should hit 60 mph in about 3.5 seconds compared to the California’s 3.8-second time. The more-powerful car also manages to reduce fuel consumption. Ratings by the EPA stand at 16 mpg city, 23 highway, 19 combined.
