Ferrari California T UK premiere at Somerset House

London, Friday 25 April 2014: The exciting new Ferrari California T made its UK premiere at an exclusive VIP event at Somerset House on the banks of the River Thames in London last night, with over 400 Ferrari clients, media and celebrities in attendance for the unveiling of the new car.

Ferrari California T UK unveilingThe Ferrari California T was the undoubted star of the show, with its elegant new design that echoes the “pontoon-fendered” 250 Testa Rossa of the late 1950s, as well as its powerful new twin-turbo V8 engine and revised driving dynamics that promise to make the California T the most exciting and fun-to-drive coupe-convertible in the luxury segment. With the latest generation CCM brakes, F1-traction control system and a remarkable 560hp engine, the California T remains a thoroughbred Ferrari which continues to attract new clients to the Prancing Horse.
