Evidently the 296 has actually captured the eye of the serial supercar purchaser, as many who like to modify between completely different unique manufacturers are being drawn to the newest providing from Maranello, and I don’t blame them. The vast majority of supercars at the moment are starting to lose that spark whereas they hunt for the quickest 0-60 and lap instances which, let’s face it, are completely meaningless on a highway automotive.
Turbocharging and OPF filters are additionally firming down the noise, one other massive issue driving fanatics like us hanker after. Admit it, if you drop just a few cogs and squeeze on the throttle, you’re not likely bothered about how briskly you speed up so long as there’s adequate G-force pushing you into your seat accompanied by the roar of a correct engine.
That’s the place the 296 has actually come by means of. Okay, I’ll be the primary to confess that it’s nonetheless method too quick, however a minimum of if you do deploy even 40% of the automotive’s potential on the highway, it’s thrilling for the driving force. Noise fills the cabin, your neck muscular tissues tense ahead and your arse turns into at one with the highway. So, in reply to the query, sure, purchase one!
However in case you do nonetheless need to name and chat about automobiles, then I’m all the time up for it. I’ll not be capable to get that thrill of spending just a few hundred grand on my subsequent automotive, however I’ll equally get pleasure from serving to you spend it on yours!
