Beginning in 2008, Ferrari offered a new model to clients wanting a more traditional front-engine Grand Tourer at a price comparable to the mid-engine F430. The new California was a landmark model for Ferrari, not only as it introduced an entirely new model range, but also as it was the first car in the company’s history with a front-mounted V8 engine, the first convertible with a folding hardtop, the first 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox, and the first with multilink rear suspension. While the California was a pure 2+2 grand tourer, Ferrari ensured performance was never in question, with over 450 horsepower and a 193 mph top speed.
In 2014, the California T arrived with cleaner, F12-inspired styling and a new twin-turbocharged 3.9-liter V8 rated at 553 horsepower – marking the first time since the F40 that a Ferrari road car featured a twin-turbocharged engine. While considered the softest Ferrari in the range, with comfortable front seats, two occasional rear seats, ample luggage capacity and even a cup holder, the California T still lived up to the iconic Cavallino Rampante badge, with sharp handling, a glorious engine, and performance that rivaled its hard-edged mid-engine stablemates.
This gorgeous 2016 California T is a one-owner example showing only 4,574 miles. Finished in an understated yet elegant livery of Silverstone over Natural tan leather, this car is highly optioned and has been meticulously dealer-maintained while in the care of its sole custodian. The striking dark grey metallic paintwork is in excellent condition, showing no significant blemishes with a clean Carfax report included. The accompanying window sticker lists approximately $30,000 in options, including Daytona Seats front and rear, carbon fiber steering wheel with LEDs, 20-inch Forged wheels, yellow calipers, Scuderia shields, parking camera, and more. Service records on file show it carries the balance of Ferrari’s 7-year maintenance plan, with the most recent scheduled maintenance occurring in July of 2022. The original books, tool kit, wind deflector, factory car cover, and a spare key are all included.
This is a beautiful example of Ferrari’s first V8 front-engine GT car, benefitting from meticulous care by a devoted marque enthusiast.
