The 2015 Ferrari California T is finally being placed into the spotlights, in an official way, after it has been teased and it has even leaked, this time with the Italian based automaker officially releasing the first images and details with the vehicle.

The 0 to 100 km/h sprint takes just 3.6 seconds in the new California and top speed stands at 316 km/h. More details on it will be announced during the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, in March.
