Ferrari California roadster becomes first turbo stallion in two decades

The Ferrari California T has become the first turbocharged production car from the iconic Italian manufacturer in more than 20 years.

The California T is powered a twin-turbocharged 3.9-litre direct-injection V8 engine producing 412kW of power at 7500rpm and 755Nm of torque at 4750rpm – representing a whopping 52kW/250Nm boost over the naturally aspirated 4.3-litre V8 of the regular California that the new model replaces.

Ferrari claims the California T accelerates from 0-100km/h in 3.6 seconds (0.2sec faster than before) and powers on to a top speed of 316km/h (up 4km/h).

The legendary sports car maker promises “virtually zero lag” from the engine – which is a reworked version of the twin-turbo 3.8-litre V8 found in the new Maserati Quattroporte – and claims to have created “the most exhilarating soundtrack any turbo has ever yielded” with the help of an enhanced crankshaft and exhaust manifold. The California T’s 3.9-litre twin-turbo V8 makes it the first turbocharged Ferrari since the F40 of the late 80s/early 90s.
