All-new Ferrari 296 GTB unveiled with a plug-in hybrid V6

The new Ferrari 296 GTB sits below the SF90 Stradale and is said to be a spiritual successor to the Dino.

Ferrari has unveiled its all-new 296 GTB model globally. The new Ferrari 296 GTB is the brand's latest plug-in hybrid supercar, positioned below the SF90 Stradale. The new 296 GTB is also the first modern Ferrari to feature a V6 engine, making it the spiritual successor to the Dino.

The Ferrari 296 GTB is a 2-seater Berlinetta powered by a 3.0-litre V6 engine mounted in the middle. The 2996cc 6-cylinder engine is said to produce 645 BHP and is paired to an electric motor, boosting its power output to 819 BHP and 740 Nm. The engine is said to churn out 218 BHP per litre - the highest for any production car. The hybrid powertrain sends power to the rear axle via an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.

In terms of performance, the new Ferrari 296 GTB is said to be capable of accelerating from 0 - 100 km/h in 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of 330 km/h. The supercar also has an electric-only range of 25 km.

The new Ferrari 296 GTB features a clean and minimalistic design. It borrows styling elements from a number of older Ferrari models, such as the 250 LM from 1963. There are also design elements from some more modern Ferraris as well, including the SF90 Stradale and Roma. The new V6 supercar also features an active aero spoiler, offering 360 kg of downforce at 250 km/h.

Inside, the 296 GTB is a typical Ferrari, with a clean and simple dashboard layout. It now features the brand's latest digital instrument cluster, a new steering wheel with haptic controls and a small touchscreen for the passenger.

Ferrari will be offering the 296 GTB with optional Assetto Fiorano Pack. This offers a bunch of additional carbon fibre parts, along with Lexan windows to reduce weight. It also features a special livery, while running on stickier Michelin Sport Cup 2 tyres.

The Maranello-based supercar brand is yet to announce the pricing for the new 296 GTB. Once introduced in the international markets, the Ferrari 296 GTB will take on the likes of the McLaren Artura.
