Reprising the hallowed California name originally applied to 250 GT California Spyder and 365 California, the 2+2 hardtop convertible Ferrari California broke cover at the 2008 Paris Motor Show and marked several Ferrari firsts. As the first production Ferrari sporting a folding metal roof, the California was also the first front-mounted V-8 Ferrari and the first from Maranello equipped with a seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic gearbox with manual-shifting capability. Beautifully sculpted bodywork designed by Pininfarina was the product of extensive wind-tunnel testing and featured numerous functional aerodynamic features. The roof is a technical masterpiece in itself, transforming the California T from sleek coupe to glamorous convertible in just 14 seconds. The Californias chassis was developed by Scaglietti and set new standards of design and development excellence as well. While certainly beautiful, the California delivers true Supercar performance in every possible discipline, exemplified by the second-generation California debuted in 2014 with a twin-turbocharged 3.9-liter V-8 engine rated at 553 HP. Capable of 0-60 mph sprints in 3.6 seconds and a top speed of 196 mph, the California T is simply one of Ferraris fastest, best-looking and most-enjoyable current models.
Beautifully finished in Rosso Mugello (Mugello Red) over Tan upholstery, this stunning 2017 Ferrari California T is a one-owner example, accompanied by an impeccably clean CARFAX report and just 1,969 miles of use at the time of writing. Virtually as-new, this top-quality 2017 Ferrari California T is beautifully presented throughout from its handsome exterior to its luxurious, yet highly functional interior, striking twin-turbo engine bay and clean, undamaged undercarriage and belly pan. Fully equipped with factory options and amenities for a fabulous all-around driving experience, this 2017 Ferrari California T is equipped with the optional HS Handling Speciale appearance and suspension upgrade package costing $8,150 new. Among the HS upgrades are discreet appearance updates including matte chrome front grille and rear diffuser, plus darker-finish exhaust tips. Functional tweaks include stiffer front and rear springs, reprogrammed magnetic dampers for sportier handling characteristics, and a more-aggressive Sport driving mode. Exhaust sound is updated to match, with new exhaust silencers one per side delivering a more menacing note. Ferraris renowned seven-speed, dual-clutch transmission was also revised on HS-optioned cars with 30 per cent quicker upshifts and 40 per cent quicker downshifts for fantastic response to driver inputs. Of particular note, the HS-specific steering upgraded the somewhat over-assisted directional control of the standard models for improved response.
In addition to the clean CARFAX report already mentioned above, this stellar 2017 Ferrari California T is accompanied by the proper factory tool tray, books and manuals. Respected from launch among magazine road-testers and Ferraris demanding clients alike, the California T seamlessly blends immense style with the stunning performance and handling that only Ferrari can deliver. With just one owner and fewer than 2,000 miles from new, this beautiful example delivers that rich tradition in abundance.
