Say goodbye to the Ferrari California T hardtop, the V8-powered grand touring sports car. But don’t be sad yet, as the Italian carmaker has already lined up a suitable replacement for the charming convertible – the new Ferrari Portofino.

Ferrari unveils Handling Speciale (HS) package for California T

The Ferrari California T could now be availed with the brand-new Handling Speciale (HS) option. This new optional package from Ferrari -- the Handling Speciale – provides a series of specific calibrations and a set-up that could make the already athletic California T sportier, especially when it is in Sport mode.

Handling Speciale includes new damper settings and modified springs that make the California T stiffer. While this package may reduce the ride comfort, it allows for a sportier feedback, which is made more promising by a new engine sound that intensifies as revs rise.

This new HS package features 16-percent stiffer front springs and 19-percent stiffer rear springs, resulting to enhanced body control due to lower roll, dive and pitch. This feedback is especially welcomed when drivers are tackling challenging routes laden with twisty roads, adding more juice to the already versatile and high performing California T.
