Ferrari 296 GTS launched at Rs 6.24 crore

Ferrari has introduced the stunning 296 GTS, the convertible version of the 296 GTB, as the latest addition to its illustrious lineup. Priced at Rs 6.24 crore (ex-showroom), the 296 GTS boasts the same hybrid powertrain as its hardtop sibling, delivering exhilarating performance and an unforgettable driving experience.

Design and Aerodynamics:
The Ferrari 296 GTS inherits its design cues from the 296 GTB, with subtle modifications to accommodate the retractable hard top. This convertible beauty features a retractable roof mechanism similar to the exclusive Ferrari SF90 Spider. The hard top elegantly folds into a bay located in the engine compartment behind the seats, allowing for a seamless open-air driving experience. The redesigned buttresses and the distinguished “aero bridge” enhance the car’s aerodynamics while giving it a distinct visual appeal. Notably, the adjustable rear screen ensures optimal comfort inside the cabin, even at high speeds with the roof down. Additionally, an active rear spoiler tucked in the tail boosts downforce for enhanced stability.

Powerful Performance:
Underneath the hood, the Ferrari 296 GTS shares the same exceptional powertrain as the 296 GTB. A 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine combined with a rear-mounted 166hp electric motor delivers a remarkable total output of 830hp and 740Nm of torque. The result is mind-boggling acceleration, propelling the 296 GTS from 0 to 100kph in just 2.9 seconds. The convertible’s top speed exceeds 330kph, matching the performance of its hardtop sibling. Despite the additional weight of the retractable roof, the 296 GTS maintains its agility and dynamic prowess, ensuring an electrifying driving experience.

Delivery Details:
While Ferrari is currently focused on delivering the 296 GTB, customers can expect the arrival of the 296 GTS in India in the coming months. Enthusiasts and collectors alike can eagerly anticipate the joy of driving this extraordinary convertible masterpiece on Indian roads.

The Ferrari 296 GTS combines the allure of open-top motoring with exceptional performance, showcasing the perfect blend of engineering prowess and Italian automotive artistry.
