Ferrari has unveiled its latest mid-rear-engined two-seater berlinetta spyder, the 296 GTS, via a digital event. It is the first open-top company model to get a 6-cylinder engine. The engine is paired with an electric motor which debuted on the 296 GTB. Ferrari 296 GTS is also offered with the more extreme Assetto Fiorano package. The Italian sports car brand is also providing customers with an extended seven-year maintenance programme with the 296 GTS which covers all regular maintenance for the first seven years or 120,000 km of the car’s life.
The cabin of Ferrari 296 GTS is based on the new concept of an entirely digital interface. When the engine is off, the onboard instruments go black. The seats are offered in an exclusive Italian leather trim. The Assetto Fiorano package further gets special GT racing-derived adjustable Multimatic shock absorbers and high downforce carbon-fibre appendages on the front bumper. It also includes a special livery inspired by the 250 Le Mans and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup2R high performance tyres. The roof takes 14 seconds to retract or deploy at speeds of up to 45kmph. The silhouette remains very similar to that of the 296 GTB while it has a dry weight of just 1540 kg which is class-leading.
