The California gains 30 hp, raising the V8's output to 490 hp.
Torque grows from 357 lb-ft to 372 lb-ft. There also are fresh exhaust manifolds and new engine mapping with a higher torque curve. Factor in the weight loss of 66 pounds, and the Gran Turismo can now run to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds. The California is Ferrari's first GT with a mid-front eight-cylinder. It launched in 2008 and features a retractable hardtop with 2+2 seating.
