On this video, Jay Leno will get to drive a 2023 Ferrari 296 GTB and provides us his ideas about this new hybrid V6-powered supercar from the Italian marque.
The Ferrari 296 GTB is the model’s new ‘entry-level’ mid-engined supercar and is being touted as their newest “gateway” to experiencing Ferrari’s race-bred DNA.
Taking heart stage for the Ferrari 296 GTB’s efficiency is its mid-mounted 120 diploma “sizzling V” 2.9L twin-turbocharged V6 hybrid engine. By the petrol-driven element alone, the unit is ready to produce 645 hp. When the electrical motor—powered by a 7.45 kwh battery—is on full blast, that provides one other 167 hp for a grand complete of 830 hp (819 bhp) and 546 lb-ft of torque.
An 8-speed twin clutch transmission, stated to be the quickest shifting of its type, sends energy to the rear-wheels. This helps the new-age Berlinetta dash from 0-100 km/h in simply 2.9 seconds, whereas 0-200 km/h could be achieved in a mere 7.3 seconds, then on its approach to a prime velocity of greater than 205 mph.
Ferrari fanatic and collector David Lee lent his yellow Ferrari 296 GTB to Jay Leno for a check drive. Leno discovered the 296 GTB to be extra satisfying to drive in comparison with the quicker and extra highly effective SF90 Stradale hybrid.
