1/ Low-carbon life
Carbon emissions matter, even on supercars, and turbos are the only way to keep upping performance while cutting pollution. Case in point: the California T is 15 per cent more efficient but hits 100km/h in just 3.6 seconds.
Well, almost. The California T gets Ferrari’s
latest F1-Trac traction control system. Combined with a computer-controlled diff,
F1-Trac’s brain-box algorithms allow you to “do an Alonso” and dance on the very edge of adhesion as the new twin-turbo V8 flings
you bodily out of corners.
3/ Traction and reaction action
So there’s the turbo engine, a new set of sculpted aluminium threads and some clever traction control. But what else is there to the California T? How about next-gen computer
controlled Magnaride suspension with body-motion sensors that reacts 50 per cent
faster than before? Yes, that.
