This is the Ferrari 296 GTB, a seriously great modern Ferrari. Today I’m reviewing this Ferrari 296 GTB, and I’ll show you all the many quirks and features. I’m also going to get behind the wheel of the Ferrari 296 GTB and show you what it’s like to drive.
The 296 GTB, an evolution of Ferrari’s mid-rear-engined two-seater sports berlinetta concept, represents a revolution for the Maranello-based company as it introduces the new 120° V6 engine coupled with a plug-in (PHEV) electric motor capable of delivering up to 830 cv. The car thus defines the idea of driving fun to provide pure excitement not only when pursuing maximum performance but also in everyday driving.
The 296 GTB is powered by a powerful 2,992 cc twin-turbo 120° V6 engine that has a maximum output of 831 hp at 8,000 rpm, in combination with a 165 hp electric motor.
The system output is given as 830 hp. A high-voltage accumulator positioned under the floor with an energy capacity of 7.45 kWh enables an electrical range of 25 km. The sports car accelerates to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.9 seconds, and the top speed is specified as over 330 km/h.
