Next gen 2015 Ferrari California to come with a Maserati sourced V8 engine

Fresh details have surfaced about the upcoming next generation 2015 Ferrari California.

If a report from the good chaps at Motor Trend is to be believed, the upcoming 2015 California will be powered by a twin-turbo V8 engine that will be basically a re-tuned variant of the Maserati Quattroporte’s twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 motor. For the Quattroporte, this engine has a max power of 530 HP (390 kW) and a peak torque output of 710 Nm (524 lb-ft). Final word on the specifications for the 2015 Ferrari California isn’t out yet but it is believed that the motor will get several new components for the next gen California.

Currently, the Ferrari California is powered by a naturally-aspirated 4.3-liter V8 engine that has a max power of 490 HP (360 kW) and peak torque of  505 Nm (372 lb-ft). The current engine is potent enough to enable the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 kmph in a scant 3.8 seconds and bestow it a top whack of 312 kmph (194 mph).

Other than getting a new engine, the 2015 Ferrari California will get aluminum body work and a power folding hardtop. It is also expected that the next gen California will get a new infotainment system that has good chances of being loosely based on Chrysler’s UConnect system.

The 2015 Ferrari California could make its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show 2014, before hitting the market in second half of next year.
