Ferrari has revealed its newest addition – the 296 GTS.
An open-top version of the 296 GTB, this new model features a Targa-style roof that allows you to get some sun while enjoying the brand’s new hybrid powertrain. Like the hard-top version, the GTS is powered by a 2.9-litre turbocharged petrol engine supported by a 122kW electric motor. The total output for the powertrain is 610kW of power and 740Nm of torque.
The name stands for Gran Turismo Spider, an historically significant name for the Prancing Horse brand, but chosen “to underscore this new engine’s epoch-changing importance to Maranello. It is not simply the living, beating heart of the 296 GTS, but it also ushers in a new V6 era that has its roots deep in Ferrari’s unrivalled 75-year history.”
The roof is a retractable hard-top can retract or deploy in just 14 seconds at speeds up to 45km/h.
Ferrari is also offering the 296 GTS with its Assetto Fiorano package (pictured here in red) which adds unique aerodynamic elements and more lightweight parts.
