After more than two decades, Ferrari released its first production turbocharged supercar in the form of the updated 412kW convertible California T.
Priced from just $409,888, before on-road costs, it was the most affordable Ferrari model ever, while still sporting a 3.9-litre twin turbocharged V8 producing more power while using less fuel than the outgoing 4.3-litre naturally aspirated engine.
Exterior changes were minimal, with a new rear diffuser, revised front bumper and slimmed down headlights marking the biggest changes to the California T.
With an increased demand for the new model, Ferrari still expected to limit availability to maintain exclusivity.
