A New Red

The New California T is based on the 2+2 concept as the old California, but will be the first production Ferrari to get a turbo engine since the legendary F40 produced in 1987. The engine makes 560 PS and 755 Nm, while producing what Ferrari says is the best noise a turbo engine has ever made. The California T also gets revised springs and the latest magnetic dampers (which respond 50 percent faster). Ferrari claims performance figures are 0-100 kmph in 3.6 seconds and a top speed of 314 kmph.

The Right Touch

These leather crochet gloves are compatible with almost any touchscreen. The underside is made from Ethiopian lambskin leather, while the top is made from Egyptian crocheted cotton; the inside has a Mongolian cashmere lining. Nanotechnology integrated into the leather mimics the conductive properties of the human skin, making the gloves touchscreen compatible.
