The Ferrari 296 GTB is being touted as a feat of engineering. In fact, for the first time in history, a car with a V6 has left the Ferrari factory with a Cavallino Rampante on its hood. Also, there are split opinions.
Ferrari 296 GTB – Clean Sheet Design and an Electrified Powertrain
This vehicle does break from the tradition with a clean-sheet design. It has an electrified powertrain. Also, DMC Tuning has just decided to push things even more by adding some extra power and bespoke aerodynamics.
It has 819-horsepower which is when the 296 GTB does roll out of Fiorano. Also, 654 of HP does spring from the gas-powered 140-degree V6 and the other 165-HP does come from an electric motor. It can, in fact, drive the car up to 16 miles. That would be on its own should it ever need to be. Also, many have actually complained about the switch to a hybrid powertrain. Adversely, others have felt, in fact, that the new styling has been too tame.
DMC Tuning Package
There is a new tuning package from DMC. The 296 GTB, every bit of it, is sharper, sleeker, and then the engine is really more powerful. Also, they do start out with simple but powerful engine tuning. It is more than 80 more than horsepower which is squeezed from the engine through changes to injection and ignition timing. Thus it results in a total of 888-hp (combined, the V6 and the electric motor). Plus, the DMC does manage to have functions through its own control module. Then, they do add a little boost to make the most of the changes.
In fact, the DMC does say that the Squalo 296 GTB can, in fact, hit 60 mph from a stop dead in just 2.8-seconds. Also, it is only 0.1 seconds this is faster than the stock car but any important is impressive. Therefore that is even more significant since none of the physical components have been swapped out. Ferrari V6 has more power than it is always a good thing.
