Ferrari has launched a teaser of an upcoming mannequin on Instagram. It actually appears to be primarily based on the 296 GTB. That’s received us scratching our heads, as we weren’t anticipating Ferrari to disclose the open-top 296 GTS this month.
The teaser picture partially reveals the facet profile of the brand new mannequin. The form of the vent is just like the 296 GTB, and so is the window profile. Nonetheless, there are two extra shut traces that aren’t current on the GTB. If it’s the 296 GTS, we are going to get a affirmation on April 19.
The Ferrari 296 GTS will use the identical V6 hybrid powertrain because the coupe. The three.0-liter V6 engine develops 654 hp, and it’s paired with an electrical motor that reinforces the general output to 818 hp and 546 lb-ft. Ferrari claims that the 296 GTB sprints from 0-62 mph in 2.9 seconds and can hit a high pace of 205 mph. The efficiency of the GTS is anticipated to be virtually on par with the coupe.
As I mentioned, if Ferrari is certainly planning to disclose the 296 GTS on April 19, we actually weren’t anticipating that. We even did a narrative on why we expect the launch of the 296 GTS could have been pushed again.
