The 296 GTB, an evolution of Ferrari’s mid-rear-engined two-seater sports berlinetta concept, represents a revolution for the Maranello-based company.
Since its initial announcement as the newest hybrid-powered supercar for Ferrari, the 296 GTB continues to prove itself as one of the most anticipated automotive releases of the year. The all-new platform features a short wheelbase design packed with the performance to shatter lap times on circuits around the world. Automotive collectors and enthusiasts came out by the thousands to The Concorso Ferrari display at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance for a chance to take a first glance at the 818-horsepower twin-turbocharged V6 hybrid.
Acting as a new engine platform for Ferrari, the drivetrain truly defines the skill and further potential of the engineers at Ferrari. Alongside the all-new Italian supercar, countless historic and modern Ferrari chassis are placed throughout the field to signify the Italian supercar manufacturer’s roots in motorsport. The Ferrari 296 GTB made its first appearance at Pebble Beach and made a lasting impression on the future of supercar technology.
