The most noteworthy new feature on the re-designed Ferrari California T convertible, is the new turbo-charged V8 sitting under the Pininfarina-designed hood. That powerplant puts out 560-horses and serious torque, and somehow people think of the California as the “entry-level” Ferrari. Yeah, okay.
Oliver’s Travels specializes in luxury escapes & they’re billing their new romantic underwater getaway aboard the Lovers Deep as the Mile Low Club—a play on the Mile High Club.
