Wondering how to channel West Coast cool in the winter? Just slip behind the wheel of Ferrari's latest ride.
The 560-horsepower Ferrari California T Handling Speciale goes from zero to 60 mph in about three seconds.
In the super-car game the term "daily driver" is often code for entry level. That just doesn’t sound right when you are shopping for a Ferrari. What does sound very right is the screaming exhaust of the Ferrari California T Handling Speciale edition. Priced starting around $207,000, the California is a modest offering for Ferrari but, based on a day-long jaunt around South Jersey and the Main Line, this new variant proves plenty aggressive—and who doesn’t need a little muscle on the Schuylkill at rush hour?
The California is powered by a 3.9 liter, twin-turbo V8 engine producing 560 horsepower and a blistering zero-to-60 mph in about three seconds. The newly tuned suspension and steering make this model even more sporty and responsive. And yet the California is very much a comfortable car. "The new California T HS offers the perfect combination of performance and daily drivability," says Francis DeRuschi, general sales manager at Algar Ferrari of Philadelphia. "And at this price point it certainly offers exceptional value." Consider the buttery leather interior, carbon fiber accents, custom wheels, and convertible drop top and this car really lives up to its West Coast wow factor. 1234 E.
