We have chosen a ride in the California T, convertible, a truly modern version of this elegant and stylish sportscar.


This model is an absolute favorite for grand touring aficionados. The front-engine, the convertible hardtop offers all the grace and power of the red legend.

This model is overflowing with innovation and will easily meet the demands of the most discerning customers looking not only for thrills behind the wheel, but also a GT with exceptional comfort suitable for everyday use.

After a short briefing with Marc our co-driver, let’s seat behind the wheel… and discover this handmade jewel. Craftsmanship at its pinnacle, this legendary supercar embodies the art of handmade in Italy, the Italian know-how. It’s a very emotional moment, actually, to me driving such a supercar remains a privilege but also a tribute to the teams that have managed to build such a unique four wheels jewel.


Let’s start the engine …. the exhaust gives us a sweet hoarse melody, it purrs like a lion ready to pounce. We are off to discover the streets of Maranello, we pass the factory (sorry I meant THE FACTORY!), and follow Marc, our guide’s instructions who lets me drive freely.

He even allows me some beautiful acceleration, safely and quietly. This supercar is a sublime jewel to drive, but also concentrates high technologies at its core. I am impressed by its ease of handling and ease in everyday life. She adapts to the driver, and the type of road. The performances you can expect are there.

We feel the engine’s responsiveness, the instant reactivity to orders, fulfilling a true performance. An impressive torque, an emblematic sound (exhaust melody…) and a super performance of the turbo engine…ROAAAARRRRRRRRRR!!

This California T has a striking silhouette, sharp lines on an aesthetics point of view…but from the inside, well wrapped into the comfortable seats, long weekends on the road become even more appealing and seductive…let’s head to our next destination!
