The California T is Ferrari's popular front-engined V8 model that does gran touring the best. In the corners, however, it isn’t as hardcore as some of the Italian brand’s mid-engined cars. Now though Ferrari claims to have made the California T a better handler with the introduction of a special handling pack.
The California T is being offered with a new Handling Speciale (HS) option for those looking for a sportier driving experience. This new option offers a series of specific calibrations and a setup that lends an extra edge, especially in the manettino's Sport mode.
The handling package incorporates new damper settings and modified springs that make the car stiffer which, although marginally reducing the ride comfort, results in sportier feedback. Ferrari has also worked on the gear shift logic for the Sport mode for quicker both up and downshifts. The HS package also includes 16 per cent stiffer front springs and 19 per cent stiffer ones at the rear and a new exhaust system.
Ferrari has announced that this handling pack will officially debut at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show.
