California T, it puts out 553 horsepower and is the first turbocharged powertrain offered by Ferrari since the days of the F40. It's matched to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transaxle. The engine's variable boost management system lets it increase torque output with each subsequent transmission gear, maxing out at 557 pound-feet of torque.
The T model should hit 60 mph in about 3.5 seconds compared to the California's 3.8-second time. The more-powerful car also manages to reduce fuel consumption. Ratings by the EPA stand at 16 mpg city, 23 highway, 19 combined.

The suspension design has been revised, faster magnetic dampers are fitted, and a new, quicker steering box replaces the old unit, which was no slouch itself. The California T also uses the latest versions of Ferrari's F1-Trac and electronic stability software—and dynamics are said to get better as the new engine is mounted lower, also lowering the center of mass and soothing weight transfer
