Ferrari California vs. Ferrari California T

What’s in a letter? If you know your Ferrari California history, you already know the answer is “quite a bit.” While we have had occasion for both Ferrari California and Ferrari California T to grace our showroom, how could you choose if presented with the both?

As your Chicago Ferrari dealer, we’ve got the specs to help you decide.

Engine & Performance

At a glance, you might think all that separates the Ferrari California and Ferrari California T is some time. Quite a bit changed from 2009 to 2016, including what’s under the hood:

  • The California T sports a 3.9L bi-turbo V8 with 553 hp and 557 lb-ft of torque.
  • The 4.3L V8 of the 2009 California has yet to adopt the turbocharger, delivering 453 hp and 357 lb-ft of torque.

That turbocharger can be all the difference for some drivers. If you’re a devotee of naturally aspirated engines, you might eagerly trade the California T’s notable increases in performance specs for a turbo-free ride.

Interior & Exterior Design

Both vehicles sport an interior wrapped in premium leather, but the Ferrari California T makes incredible use of its space. Between a more convenient placement of navigation, a spacious interior that establishes new expectations for a 2+2, and more trunk space, the California T makes it easy to get comfortable behind the wheel.

The more spacious cabin does come at a price, however, and Chicagoland drivers who prize the sleekest and slimmest Ferraris might prefer the California — and will no doubt still feel at home in the cockpit. The exterior of the California also bears a unique look while the California T experienced a significant exterior redesign that took cues from the F12berlinetta.
