Future Ferrari California might bet turbo V8 image

The future generation of the Ferrari California is expected to get a new turbocharged V8 engine under its hood.

The Ferrari California has been designed in order to be used as an everyday car and if the current version doesn’t attract you too much, don’t worry, because Ferrari is planning to develop a new generation of the model. With the facelifted California making its way onto the market just a few months ago, the completely redesigned version is scheduled to arrive in 2014 or 2015 and the model has a raised hood line and additional cooling vents, which might indicate a turbocharged engine, which might come as a turbocharged V8, probably the 3.8L twin-turbo found on the new Maserati Quattroporte.

As a small reminder, the Ferrari California has been officially presented to the public back in 2008 at the Paris Motor Show and it’s coming with a 4.3 liter gasoline direct injected V8 engine, which is developing a total output of 450 horsepower. The unit is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and the Italian supercar is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.4 seconds before hitting a top speed of 310 km/h or 193 mph.
