Ferrari California T to feature twin-turbocharged V8 engine

A 3.8-liter, 8-cylinder twin-turbo engine will power the new Ferrari California T, which will be officially unveiled at the upcoming Geneva International Motor Show.
The all-new direct-injection, 3,855cc power unit is mounted low in the chassis in a mid-front position and delivers 559ps at 7,500rpm, as well as maximum torque of 755Nm at 4,750rpm. According to Ferrari, the California T has a top speed of 316km/h and is capable of accelerating to 100km/h in 3.6 seconds, achieving virtually zero turbo lag thanks to variable boost management.
Compared to its naturally aspirated predecessor, fuel consumption is down by around 15% despite a 49% increase in torque. Emissions are down to 250 g/km over the combined cycle, which equates to a 20% reduction in CO2. The California T’s engine also features compact, low inertia twin-scroll turbines for sharper throttle response.
Special manufacturing techniques for components such as the flat-plane crankshaft and the three-piece cast exhaust manifold and turbo housing have been used to help the engine produce a powerful sound during both the intake and exhaust phases, which becomes more potent as engine speed increases. According to Ferrari, this is the first time a result of this kind has been achieved with a turbo engine.
