Ferrari Service and Sales Bay Area - New Spyshots Show Turbocharged Ferrari California Testing Again - San Francisco Motorsports San Rafael
Turbochargers are more or less uncharacteristic for the Italian supercar brandFerrari. It’s been a while since they used them, while several historic flagships like theF40and the 288 GTO were turbocharged.
Now it seems that Ferrari will release a new turbocharged model. A lighty disguisedFerrari Californiamule is said to be testing powertrains and running gear for the next-gen model. The engine of this test car sounded like a turbocharged unit and is likely to be a version of a new V8 family now in production at Maranello. The raised bonnet line and extra cooling vents could also be a sign that the turbo engine has a taller package height that needs more under-bonnet space and heat management.
