2023 Ferrari 296 GTS With 819 hp and a hybrid drivetrain uses the new V6 - Car Blog

        Hodangnhan.com - Ferrari 296 GTB,  the V-6 car may not be a replacement for the V-8 F8, but it certainly has all the makings of a main-line Ferrari sports car. Including, as of today, a drop-top version.



        The 296 GTS is the latest evolution of Maranello's mid-rear-engined two-seater berlinetta spider. The 296 GTS flanks the 296 GTB in redefining the whole concept of fun behind the wheel, guaranteeing pure emotions not just when pushing the car to its limits, but also in day-to-day driving situations.



            The Ferrari 296 GTS uses the new 663 cv 120° V6, coupled with an electric motor capable of delivering a further 122 kW (167 cv), which debuted on the 296 GTB. This is the first 6-cylinder engine installed on a road-going spider sporting the Prancing Horse badge; it unleashes its class-leading 830 cv total power output to deliver previously unthinkable performance levels and an innovative, exhilarating and unique soundtrack, further enhanced by the fact that it can be relished with the top down.



        The car's name combines its total displacement (2992 l) and number of cylinders with the GTS (Gran Turismo Spider) acronym in finest Ferrari tradition, to underscore this new engine's epoch-changing importance to Maranello. It is not simply the living, beating heart of the 296 GTS, but it also ushers in a new V6 era that has its roots deep in Ferrari's unrivalled 75-year history.



        The very first Ferrari V6 featured a 65° architecture and debuted on the 1957 1500 cc Dino 156 F2 single-seater. This was followed in 1958 by larger displacement versions on the front-engined sports prototypes - the 196 S and 296 S - and the 246 F1 car which powered Mike Hawthorn to the F1 Drivers' Championship title the same year.



        The 296 GTS's plug-in hybrid (PHEV) system guarantees it is an incredibly usable car as well as cutting pedal response times to zero and delivering a 25km range in all-electric eDrive mode. The car's compact dimensions and the introduction of innovative dynamic control systems as well as meticulously honed aero ensure that the driver will instantly be impressed by its astonishing agility and responsiveness to commands. Its sporty, sinuous design and extremely compact dimensions also visually underscore its unique and modern forms, while skilfully referencing the likes of the 1963 250 LM, the perfect marriage of simplicity and functionality.



        The Grand Touring Spider, or GTS, gets the same 120-degree twin-turbo V-6 as the coupe, paired with an electric motor that sits between the engine and gearbox. That motor can generate up to 164 hp in small bursts, enough to boost combined output to a staggering 819 hp. Torque is much lower—546 lb-ft—but with the immediacy of the electric motor and the high-revving potency of the screaming V-6, we found it plenty quick.

        Don't expect the conversion to a drop-top to slow it down much. The 296 GTS' dry weight comes in at just under 3400 lbs, roughly 150 lbs more than the coupe. That's not nothing, but for a power-operated hard-top with the requisite chassis stiffening, it's a good number. The 296 should still hit 62 in 2.9 seconds and charge on to 124 in 7.6 seconds. Pricing for the 296 GTB starts at $317,986. Expect base GTS pricing to kick off above that and continue into the stratosphere.

        Every time a new Ferrari sports car hits the scene, you just know a topless version won't be far behind it. Right on cue, the mega-hot 296 GTB, a mid-engine plug-in hybrid plaything loaded with Ferrari firsts that debuted last year is being joined by the 296 GTS, the same basic PHEV, minus a fixed roof. The name change is attributable to that convertible body style: Ferrari dubs this the "Gran Turismo Spider."



        Instead of the GTB's fixed roof, the GTS has a retractable hard top, which can stow behind the cabin in 14 seconds; deploying the roof when raindrops begin falling—or your sun tolerance runs out—takes the same amount of time. The roof's transformer action can take place at up to 28 mph, and sees the panel above the occupants split in two before arranging themselves in a stacked manner ahead of the engine. This ensures the engine's "thermal dissipation characteristics" and the car's overall look are unchanged, per Ferrari.



        To atone for the extra cut lines across the 296's lid, Ferrari installs a nifty vertical window between the cabin and the rear deck that you can raise and lower with the top down. Leave it up for less wind rush inside, or put 'er down for some extra noise from that mid-mounted, 2.9-liter V-6 engine, which thanks to its wide 120-degree cylinder bank angle and symmetrical firing order sounds almost like a V-12. The "hot tube" sound ducting that pipes noise from the exhaust (pre-catalytic converter) directly into the cabin has been revised to keep its song going whether the top is up or down, and Ferrari even kept the 296 GTB's horizontal decklid window that allows onlookers, truckers, or nearby SUV drivers to peer down into the engine bay from above, though the portal here is smaller due to the movable panels that allow the roof to stow.



        Ferrari gives GTS buyers the same drive modes GTB buyers get: eDrive (EV mode), Hybrid (engine can go off for brief periods), Performance (engine stays on), and Qualify (maximum performance, less battery charging). Ditto the Side Slip Control (eSSC) system, which can manage front and rear grip to allow drivers to indulge in some goofball antics with the stability control system actively keeping things from going awry.

        GTS shoppers also are given access to the same Assetto Fiorano performance package offered on the 296 GTB, which includes lightweight carbon-fiber parts, higher-downforce aerodynamic add-ons, Multimatic dampers, and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup2R track tires. More visibly, Assetto Fiorano models can be specified with a sweet stripe package (pictured on the red car here) inspired by the 250 Le Mans.
