Barbagallo Ferrari launches the 296 GTB
Barbagallo Ferrari had the pleasure of digitally launching he 296 GTB in June, and more recently inviting clients to discover the newest Ferrari in private. An evolution of Ferrari’s mid-rear-engined two-seater sports berlinetta concept, the vehicle represents a revolution for the Maranello-based company as it introduces the new 120° V6 engine coupled with a plug-in (PHEV) electric motor capable of delivering up to 830 cv. The car thus redefines the idea of driving fun to provide pure excitement not only when pursuing maximum performance but also in everyday driving.
The design of the 296 GTB redefines the identity of Ferrari’s mid-rear-engined berlinetta, giving the car a compact, modern and original line. Its short wheelbase and monolithic appearance make it the most compact berlinetta from Maranello of the last decade. Having abandoned the typical fastback berlinetta layout, the Ferrari Style Centre focused on creating a cabin set within a powerful volume. This was the result of the short wheelbase and aspects such as muscular mudguards, a visor roof, flying buttresses and a brand new vertical rear screen.
The vehicle’s interior has been refined for the digital era; with the car’s cabin is built around the full-digital interface introduced on the SF90 Stradale. However, if the SF90 Stradale highlighted advanced technology and a break with the past, the 296 GTB seeks to assimilate the technical content into a refined look. The result is pure and characterised by considerable elegance, as well as being consistent with the design of the exterior.
