FERRARI 296 GTB, THE LATEST TARGET FOR SPORTS CAR COLLECTORS
New Breed for V6 Ferrari with PHEV Technology.
Ferrari has just introduced a new model 296 GTB. This model is the latest evolution of Maranello's mid-rear-engined two-seater. Ferrari reveals this new car will redefine the concept of driving pleasure, guaranteeing emotional purity for both circuit and daily driving.
The 296 GTB refers to the engine used, namely the 2,992-liter engine with 6 cylinders, aka V6. This machine can generate power up to 818 HP thanks to the additional help of an electric motor. Yes, this model is a plug-in hybrid (PHEV). Interestingly, this latest V6 engine comes with an angle of 120 degrees. Usually, the old V6 has a 60-degree angle to a 90-degree angle between the cylinder banks, affects the lower center gravity and reduces engine weight.
The name GTB is an abbreviation of Gran Turismo Berlinetta, which is a tradition of the brand originating from the city of Maranello.

Further about the engine from this latest Ferrari, the electric motor can make the 296 GTB fully electric within a distance of 25 kilometers. It makes the driver feel the sensation of spontaneous acceleration typical of electric cars.
In terms of design, the 296 GTB is one of the most aesthetically pleasing sports cars today. This car has a balance between the aggressiveness of the SF90 Stradale model with the elegance of the Roma model. Not to forget, the shape is reminiscent of the 1957 Dino 156 F2 and 246 SP that won the Targa Florio in 1961 and 1962.
The styling of the tail hails an unequivocal break from traditional Ferrari coupé design by adopting an architecture that creates a spider-like discontinuity between the roof and rear engine cover. This choice makes the 296 GTB both unique and instantly recognizable. From an aerodynamic perspective, it led to the addition of a new wing profile on the roof which extends into two side fins that hug the edges of the rear engine cover.
The 296 GTB’s cockpit was developed around the new concept of an entirely digital interface, which Ferrari first debuted on the SF90 Stradale. The idea was to clothe that technology in a sophisticated way. The result is a pure, minimalistic connotation characterized by a powerful elegance that, on an aesthetic level, perfectly mirrors the design of the exterior.

The main instrument cluster is set into a deep cleft carved out of the dashboard trim, characterized by a deliberately clean, taut surface. From this styling, a solution emerges: the steering wheel and the instrument cluster are supported by two visible structural supports, which taper seamlessly into the dashboard.
For potential buyers who want a more powerful version, Ferrari provides the Assetto Fiorano package. This package will make the 296 GTB lighter and improve aerodynamics by placing several carbon fiber materials for the cabin and exterior.
The Assetto Fiorano package does more than replace parts. Ferrari had to redesign the basic structure, including the door panels which made this car 12 kilograms lighter than the standard variant.
In addition, Ferrari also offers a special livery inspired by the 250 Le Mans that can be ordered by Assetto Fiorano buyers. Some parts that can be purchased separately are the ultra-light rear windshield and Michelin Sport Cup 2 R tires for grip on the track.#THE S MEDIA #Media Milenial #ferrari 296 gtb #296 gtb #ferrari 296 #ferrari 296 gtb sound #ferrari 296 gtb review #2022 ferrari 296 gtb #ferrari 296 gtb price #new 296 gtb #296 gtb 2021 #296 gtb reveal #296 gtb review #ferrari 296 gtb assetto fiorano #2022 ferrari 296 #ferrari 296 sound #296 gtb reveal 2021 #ferrari 296 gtb exhaust #ferrari 296 gtb interior #ferarri 296 #2022 296 gtb #296 ferrari #296 gtb live #296 gtb sound #296 gtb modena #296 gtb motore #ferarri 296 gtb #296 gtb dal vivo
