Test Drive Ferrari 296 GTB

Test Drive Ferrari 296 GTB

aAnother record year: ferrari Was able to sell over 11,000 super sports cars last year. Sales in 2008 were only 6500 units. Today there are half a dozen models, prices for a 2+2-seater Roma start at about 200,000 euros. V8 and V12 cylinders drive racers from Maranello, and the SF 90 also gets three electric motors for its 3.4-liter V8.

Beginning in the summer, the portfolio will be expanded to include the Ferrari 296 GTB, which is powered by a 3.0-liter V6 with electric assist. In this way, for the first time in the company’s 75-year history, Ferrari is introducing a model with a V6 engine. Otherwise Ferrari always had V8 or V12 machines, the dino of the seventies never wore the Ferrari emblem with their V6.

296 GTB means 2.9 liters of displacement, exactly 2992 cubic centimeters. GTB stands for Gran Turismo Berlinetta. A Berlinetta is a small sport coupe, literally meaning “little saloon”. The rear mid-engined two-seater sends power from two machines, which together generate 830 hp and 900 Nm of maximum torque on the crankshaft, specifically to the rear axle. The V6 has two sides of the cylinder at 120-degree angles, with the two turbochargers sitting on top. Everything about the engine is new, including the oil pump. The work of art in the rear can be admired under the glass flap.

Ferraristi can rely on a number of electronic assistants.

The 25-kilometer electric range is made possible by a 7.5 kWh lithium-ion battery, and it’s really distracting at first when a Ferrari crawls quietly after starting. But it does have the charm, but the funniest is its tight coupe with 4.57m in length and a shorter wheelbase of 2.60m when both engines are allowed to work together. Then it says 663 plus 167 hp.
