The Ferrari 296 GTS is a high-performance convertible supercar launched by Ferrari. It is based on the 296 GTB coupe but offers the added exhilaration of open-top driving. The 296 GTS features a retractable hardtop that can be opened or closed in 14 seconds, even while driving up to 45 km/h.
Under the hood, the 296 GTS boasts a hybrid powertrain with a 3.0-litre V6 engine and an electric motor. The V6 engine alone produces 645 horsepower, and when combined with the electric motor, the power output increases to a remarkable 819 horsepower. The torque generated by the hybrid powertrain is 740 Nm.
Power is sent to the rear wheels through an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The 296 GTS delivers impressive performance figures, with a claimed 0-100 km/h acceleration time of 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 330 km/h, matching the coupe variant despite the additional weight of the convertible mechanism.
In terms of design, the Ferrari 296 GTS showcases the iconic styling elements of a Ferrari supercar. It features aerodynamic sculpting, sleek lines, and a retractable hardtop that seamlessly integrates into the overall design. The dual buttresses and adjustable windscreen between them reduce wind noise inside the cabin when the roof is down.
Inside the cabin, the 296 GTS offers a luxurious and driver-focused environment. It incorporates advanced technologies and premium materials to provide comfort and a high-performance driving experience.
Priced at Rs 6.24 crore the Ferrari 296 GTS combines the best of both worlds: the power and efficiency of a hybrid powertrain and the exhilaration of open-top driving, making it an enticing choice for enthusiasts seeking an extraordinary convertible supercar experience.
