The California T a hit all around the world, including the Maranello Museum


Maranello, 10th July 2014

The Ferrari California T continues to draw plaudits from around the world and it’s one of the biggest hits at the Ferrari Museum in Maranello, where it currently features in the “California Dreaming” exhibition.

On 6th July, admissions to the exhibition hit a record 2,400 for the day. It is split into different themed areas, the first on the ground floor is dedicated to racing, with particular reference to the Laguna Seca track and it’s famous vertiginous “corkscrew” corner. Leaving this area on a Hollywood-style red carpet, one reaches the room dedicated to Ferrari in the movies which takes visitors through Rodeo Drive and Beverley Hills with a display featuring, next to one another, the famous California from the 50s and of course the new T; sixty years summed up in a glance.

A bit further on and one finds oneself on a golf course for the Pebble Beach concours d’elegance, featuring some incredible cars such as the 500 Superfast, 330 America and the 400 Superamerica, cars designed for the American market. The last room of the exhibition takes visitors to the technological world of Silicon Valley, featuring the many innovations produced by Ferrari, which brings together the style and technology of the Prancing Horse in the shape of Maranello’s hybrid supersports car, the LaFerrari. Visitors are invited to take photos and selfies, posting the photos on Twitter using #MuseoFerrariMaranello.

The museum, along with the Enzo Ferrari Museum in Modena, is open every day.
