Now, Ferrari itself has released an exciting video looking at the French unveiling of the company’s latest grand tourer and there’s no denying the fact that this is quite a stunning car.

In case you needed reminding, the new California T comes fitted with a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V8 engine, with the ‘T’ in the name standing for ‘Turbo’. This engine is closely related to the same unit available on the latest Maserati Quattroporte. However, for the Ferrari California T it has received a significant power boost and now delivers an impressive 552 hp at 7,500 rpm and a mega 755 Nm of torque at a relatively low 4,750 rpm. As a result, the new California T can launch from a standstill to 100 km/h in a mere 3.6 seconds. The car then continues to accelerate to its top speed of 316 km/h.

The new Ferrari California T measures 4,570 mm in length, is 1,910 mm wide and just 1,322 mm high. All up, the new Ferrari GT car tips the scales at 1,625 kg and has a weight distribution of 47 per cent at the back and 53 per cent at the front. Considering a massive V8 is up front, this weight distribution is quite impressive indeed. Despite its fairly heavy weight and massive power, the 2015 Ferrari California T can sip a mere 10.5 litres of fuel per 100 km.
