Just as we had reported earlier, Italian sports carmaker Ferrari has officially re-entered Indian market with the launch of its California T at Rs.3.45 crore. The California T was launched around the world last year and it is a worthy successor to the Ferrari California coupe. It is also the first Ferrari car in 20 years to have a turbocharged engine.
The 3.8-liter turbocharged V8 engine that powers the California T produces a whopping 552bhp of peak power and 755Nm of peak torque. With all this power, the California T can go from zero to 100kmph in just 3.6 seconds and can achieve a top speed of 314kmph. The engine is mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
On the inside, the California T gets a 2+2 seating arrangement similar to the previous California coupe. The retractable hard top of the California T can be folded up or down in just 14 seconds. The entire cabin of the California T has been covered in semi-aniline leather. Apart from that the car comes with 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system as well as 12-speaker JBL entertainment system.
The California T has also received certain technologies from Ferrari’s F1 vehicles, such as a F1-spec traction control system, a variable boost management system and magnetic damping.
The California T along with other Ferrari cars would be sold exclusively through two new showrooms in Mumbai and Delhi.
