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 redefines the idea of driving fun to provide pure excitement not only when pursuing maximum performance but also during everyday driving.
COMPACTNESS AND MODERNITY
The design of the 296 GTB redefines the identity of Ferrari’s mid-rear-engined berlinetta, giving the car a compact, modern and original line. Its short wheelbase and monolithic appearance make it the most compact berlinetta from Maranello of the last decade. Having abandoned the typical fastback berlinetta layout, the Ferrari Style Centre focused on creating a cabin set within a powerful volume. This was the result of the short wheelbase and aspects such as muscular mudguards, a visor roof, flying buttresses and a brand new vertical rear screen.
The rear is dominated by a ring-shaped flying buttress that houses the engine compartment cover, developed on an unusual three-dimensional glass surface. The central part of the car stands out with a body-colored element that represents a style theme dear to the Maranello marque. Another characteristic of the 296 GTB is the truncated tail that enhances its compactness. The tail incorporates a horizontal element that encloses lights and an integrated spoiler.
The 296 GTB is the first Ferrari road car fitted with a 120°, 6-cylinder turbo engine. The engine structure means that the turbochargers can fit within the “Vee”. This increases its compactness, lowers its center of gravity, reduces its mass, and helps it achieve extraordinarily high power levels (663 cv). The new Ferrari V6 sets a record of 221 hp/l for specific torque output for a production car.
The active mobile spoiler stands out at the rear. Its philosophy is opposite to that of previous Ferrari berlinettas. In the past, the flaps switched from the HighDownforce (HD) to LowDrag (LD) configuration to hit top speed on the straight, while on the 296 GTB the active splitter aims to boost downforce. The spoiler is integrated into the bumper; when maximum downforce is not necessary, it is hidden in the tail, but as soon as the acceleration exceeds a given threshold, it raises. The LaFerrari-inspired active spoiler integrated into the rear bumper allows the 296 GTB to generate a high level of rear downforce when required: the equivalent of a maximum of 360 kg at 250 km/h in high-downforce configuration with the Assetto Fiorano package. This results in a 100 kg increase in rear downforce, increasing driving fun in performance conditions and minimizing stopping distances.
THE REFINED FACE OF THE DIGITAL ERA
The car’s cabin is built around the full-digital interface introduced on the SF90 Stradale. However, if the SF90 Stradale highlighted advanced technology and a break with the past, the 296 GTB seeks to assimilate the technical content into a refined look. The result is pure and characterized by considerable elegance, as well as being consistent with the design of the exterior.
