It’s superb what number of members I’ve spoken to in regards to the Ferrari 296 GTB after watching the video we launched on the automobile again in late January, all asking the identical factor — “So ought to I purchase one?”.

It appears that 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 most recent providing from Maranello, and I don’t blame them. Nearly all of supercars are actually starting to lose that spark whereas they hunt for the quickest 0-60 and lap occasions which, let’s face it, are completely meaningless on a street automobile.
Turbocharging and OPF filters are additionally firming down the noise, one other huge issue driving fans like us hanker after. Admit it, once you drop just a few cogs and squeeze on the throttle, you’re probably not bothered about how briskly you speed up so long as there’s ample 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. Okay, I’ll be the primary to confess that it’s nonetheless manner too quick, however no less than once you do deploy even 40% of the automobile’s potential on the street, it’s thrilling for the motive force. Noise fills the cabin, your neck muscle tissues tense ahead and your arse turns into at one with the street. So, in reply to the query, sure, purchase one!
However if you happen to do nonetheless need to name and chat about vehicles, 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 automobile, however I’ll equally take pleasure in serving to you spend it on yours!
