Ferrari is preparing to expand its range of open-air cars with the new one 296 GTB Spider. This is the fifth open-top model from the Maranello-based car manufacturer, which will join the other Spider versions of Portofino, F8, SF90 and 812 GTS. The debut of the Spider version of the 296 GTB seems to be getting closer and closer: despite just over a month having passed since the unveiling of the standard version of the Prancing Horse sports car, in Maranello the tests have already started of the open-air variant of the model.
Recent spy photos released by Carscoops immortalized the upcoming 296 GTB Spider being tested wearing a camouflage livery. The main novelty, obviously due to the introduction of a removable roof, concerns weight gain overall of the sports car from Maranello, which should thus exceed 1,500 kg. We will see if this affects the performance of the car, which in the standard version is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in less than 3 seconds flat and reach a top speed of 330 km / h. At the moment no changes to the hybrid powertrain, which will also consist of a 2.9-liter V6 turbo petrol engine combined with an electric motor, for a total power of 819 hp and delivering a maximum torque of 740 Nm. The presentation of the new 296 GTB Spider is expected within the end of the year or at the beginning of 2022 at the latest.
