2014 Ferrari California T
Sacramento - Arab Today

2014 Ferrari California T Sacramento - Arab Today The supercar maker is ramping up the power and turning on the style but also cutting fuel consumption for the second-generation California drop-top. Like the original California, launched back in 2008, the new model, which will be known as the California T when it rolls out to clients following its official Geneva Motor Show reveal in March, has a metal folding roof, front-mounted V8 and has been designed to offer boulevard cruising and supercar thrills in equal measure. However, this time around the engine is smaller -- 3.8-liters -- but, thanks to a pair of turbochargers, pumps out more power -- 553bhp, compared with 483bhp from the first-generation California. Other improvements include torque -- the engine somehow manages to produce 755Nm -- a 50 percent improvement on the outgoing model's. Put together, these improvements mean a 0-100km/h time of 3.6 seconds and a top speed of 316km/h (196mph). Yet, remarkably fuel economy is better at 26.9mpg (10.5l/100km), and CO2 emissions have also been cut. In terms of styling the new car looks more like part of the wider Ferrari family with a number of design cues lifted from the F12 Berlinetta and the FF. Making sure the car's good looks remain that way are carbon ceramic brakes as standard, a new suspension set-up and an all-new steering system plus the latest generation of Ferrari's F1-Trac traction control system for maximum acceleration out of corners. Then there's the use of accelerometers (like those found in a smartphone) that monitor body movement in order to eliminate pitch and roll. Inside, the cabin has also been brought into line with those of the latest Ferraris. There's a new 6.5-inch touchscreen display and something called the Turbo Performance Engineer. This is a dedicated secondary display mounted between the air vents that allows the driver to scroll through information screens relating to the engine's performance. Source: Relaxnews
