As the first V6 in more than 50 years, the 296 GTB produces 830 hp and 740 Nm from a 2.9-litre twin-turbo engine, aided by an electric motor. Despite the new, smaller engine, it’s still capable of reaching 100 km/h from a standstill in under three seconds. Top speed is well in excess of 300 km/h.
Among the noteworthy features of the exterior is the active rear spoiler for better downforce while the all-new chassis of the 296 GTB is shorter than the F8 Tributo. This Ferrari says, provides a fun-to-drive, go-kart feeling. Most of the controls inside the car are touch-sensitive, while the light switches, turn indicator switches, and eManettino switch are among those still operated with physical switches.
The 296 GTB can be specified with the Assetto Fiorano package for extra carbon fibre bits, additional downforce, race-derived suspension, and weight reduction of up to 15 kg.
