The latest Ferrari is as slow as an Opel Corsa. That has nothing to do with the fact that this is the first V6 Ferrari in ages. Only in all-electric mode does the Ferrari 296 GTB have such limited performance. In the other driving modes you are of course dealing with a thoroughbred Ferrari. You can see below how that drives on the circuit and the public road.
The brand developed a new V6 engine for the Ferrari 296 GTB. The cylinders are placed at 120 degrees, so that there is room in the middle for the turbos – this is also known as a hot V mentioned. The engine produces 221 horsepower per litre, which is a record for a production car. The power of the V6 is 663 hp and the total power of the hybrid powertrain is 830 hp. All the power goes to the rear wheels via an automatic transmission.
The 0-100 time of the Ferrari 296 GTB is 2.9 seconds. The 0-200 time is 7.3 seconds and the top speed is over 330 km/h. And perhaps important: you must be able to drive 25 kilometers fully electrically. The car weighs 1,470 kilograms and with the optional Assetto Fiorano package, the active rear spoiler (inspired by that of the LaFerrari) generates a hefty 360 kilograms of downforce.
