Does a convertible, turbocharged Ferrari sound like the car of your dreams? Well, it’s a reality now with the 2015 Ferrari California T.

Though the Ferrari California T does sport some styling changes, the most important aspect of it is the 3.8-liter V8 twin-turbo engine that churns out 552 hp and 523 lb-ft of torque. The eco-conscious Ferrari owners out there will also be happy to hear that the engine is 15 percent more fuel efficient compared to its predecessor.

According to the Italian automaker, engineers worked on eliminating turbo lag from the powerplant and claims that the Ferrari California T delivers the responsiveness of a naturally aspirated engine. All we care about however is the fact that Ferrari is once again using turbochargers on their engines and hopefully it’s a sign of things to come.
