2014 Geneva Motor Show has been an awesome event for sports cars so far, with many all-new or thoroughly updated speed machines making their debut. Here’s one of the more prominent ones, the new Ferrari California T, featuring, for the first time, a turbocharged V8 engine.

The 3855 cc V8 turbo in the Ferrari California T develops 560 hp and a maximum torque of 755 Nm in 7th gear. It features twin-scroll turbochargers that ensure more rapid spool up, flat-plane crankshaft, and high-tumble intake manifold and high-flow exhaust manifold. So turbo lag is virtually non-existent.

The California T sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.6 seconds flat and from 0 to 200 km/h in 11.2 seconds. It is also more fuel efficient to the tune of approximately 15 per cent than the previous California. What’s more, the car is also more agile thanks to revised chassis, suspension, and steering system. It even features an F1 traction control system and Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes.

Ferrari California T retains the previous model’s foldable hardtop that goes up and down electronically in 14 seconds. But visually, the car is substantially changed with new headlights and larger air intakes, as well as optimized aero.

The new California also benefits from a new highly intuitive infotainment system with the following features:

–          a WVGA screen;

–          a new, simplified HMI with  option to access all functions, either via full-touch screen or buttons;

–          a Diversity antenna which improves reception and delivers a stronger, clearer signal at high speeds and between buildings;

–          new DAB antenna capable of picking up digital signals and thereby offering excellent sound quality, including radio;

–          sat nav with 3D mapping for easier routing;

–          USB ports in the compartment under the armrest to ensure drivers’ and passengers’ devices are within hand’s reach.
