Final calendar year Ferrari confirmed us the V6-driven 296 GTB and now we are acquiring a fall-major version aptly referred to as the 296 GTS (Gran Turismo Spider).
It athletics a retractable hardtop that can be opened and closed in 14 seconds when travelling at speeds of up to 45 km/h (30 mph). Push the button to lower the top and the roof will split into two sections that fold flush around the engine bay.
Just like the 296 GTB, this would make use of the twin-turbo 3.-litre V6 creating 654 hp (488 kW) and with the assistance of an electric motor, it can produce a whopping 818 hp (610 kW) and 740 Nm (546 lb-ft) of torque. That is ample grunt for a to 100 km/h (62 mph) dash in just 2.9 seconds and a top velocity of 330 km/h (205 mph).
How much body weight does this get in excess of its coupe sibling? If fitted with the optional Assetto Fiorano package deal, you are searching at an boost of 70 kg (154 lb).
Much like the variation with the set roof, the new 296 GTS has an all-electric powered driving vary of 25 km (15.5 miles) courtesy of a 7.45-kWh battery pack. As with the coupe, the mid-engined Cabrio makes use of the similar twin-clutch, eight-speed automatic transmission set up in the SF90 Stradale / Spider as well as the Roma / Portofino.
The 296 GTS is not the only debut planned for this calendar year by Ferrari as in just a several short months, the wraps will finally occur off the Purosangue SUV.
