Ferrari California T

You can drive this car in Europe (permission required) International licence accepted Airport drop off available

The Ferrari California was Ferraris' first production car to have a front-mounted V8 engine and also their first car to have the dual-clutch gearbox. With the revision of the California, some 6 years after it's inital release, Ferrari have added a twin-turbo to the mix (not your usual Ferrari setup), hence the 'T' added to the end of the badge.

The Ferrari California T has had a further engine tweak with the capacity dropping from 4.3 litres, to 3.9 litres, but with increased power output, up by 70bhp to 552bhp. The same pattern is starting to emerge in other models, such as the new 488GTB, with engine sizes being reduced and turbos being introduced. The CO2 emmision laws play a part in this but with benefits being passed onto the driver, it's a win win situation (be it a little dis-concerning for die-hard Ferrari fans to see more turbo engines entering the fleet). Ferrari engineers have been very conscious of this point and capped the level of torque in each rev band to ensure the car has to be driven hard through the rev range to maintain the characteristics of the Ferrari driving experience. The revised gear-ratios of the dual clutch gearbox also help matters here.

Without dumbing down the original California (still a wonderful car), The California T is what the original California should have been, a more aggressive, responsive, and race setup model to add to the paddock. A perfect car to be appreciated fully with both the roof up or down but, given the chance, the V8 orchestra just isn't the same without your shades on and the wind blowing through your hair.

The Ferrari California T is available to hire nationwide but more competitively priced in the Birmingham and London areas to include the major airports of Heathrow Airport, Gatwick Airport, Stansted Airport, London City Airport and Birmingham Airport.
