Ferrari California T Gets Capristo Sports Exhaust

Owning the twin-turbocharged Ferrari California T is as good as you think. The 'affordable' Italian supercar is now worthy of its Prancing Horse badge, and the aftermarket world has taken a liking to it as well.

Up next, we're going to show you a clip of the latest aftermarket exhaust system designed specifically for this car by the Germans at Capristo. It spits, growls and hurls decibels at you like an army of jackhammers.

Codenamed F149M, the significantly updated California model features a new look and a smaller yet more powerful V8 engine. You would never know that it's a turbocharged with the way Capristo designed its sports exhaust.

All the components are made from polished stainless steel. The good news is that you can also order a valve system with a remote control. At the press of its button, this turns the California T into a magnet for iPhones and other nearby filming devices.

So does it bring any performance benefits? We hope so, but there's no shortage of power anyway. This bad boy churns out 560 horsepower, is capable of hitting 196 miles per hour and still acts like a cruiser when needed. Sure, the BMW M6 Convertible is about as fast, but the handling isn't the same, and neither is the design.Coolness comes standard
Under the bonnet of the California T is a 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8 engine producing 70 more than the old one. Torque is also up, which means 0 to 100 km/h in only 3.6 seconds is possible. After the convertible, the 458 Italia also received the forced induction treatment, resulting in the birth of the 488 GTB.

So why would you buy the Ferrari convertible instead of the Spider? We don't have a good answer to that question, but your local supercar dealership might charge you $100,000 less for one. Anybody, even a millionaire, would be happy with the savings.
