The second plug-in hybrid model in the Ferrari range is about to drop the top. What do we already know about the future 296 Spider?
New Ferrari 296 GTB 2021: the convertible on the way – If there is a manufacturer loyal to convertible bodies, despite the growing disenchantment with this silhouette, it is Ferrari. Almost all models appearing in its catalog are eligible for decapping, and the youngest will not cut it. In the coming months, the rechargeable hybridization on board the 296 GTB will move its derivative spider.
Silence… up to 135 km / h
That happiness to be able to ride hair in the wind, wedged in the seat of a Ferrari, in order to take full advantage of the hiss of their noble mechanics. A pleasure that will soon be possible to savor in the greatest of silence, at the wheel of the future convertible 296 GTB. This will benefit, like the coupe, from 25 km of 100% electric driving made possible by his 7.45 kWh battery feeding a 122 kW electric motor (approximately 167 hp). Unfortunately, it will be impossible to exceed 135 km / h using this “zero emission” driving mode.
To undermine the brushing of his passenger, the driver of the future Ferrari 296 Spider will be forced and forced to emit a certain amount of carbon dioxide, via the incredible 663 hp V6 who will accumulate 830 ch to the beautiful Italian. Mind-blowing performance that will probably live up to those of the coupe, as the F8 spider is matched to those of the Tributo, in terms of acceleration and v-max. We can thus hope a 0 to 100 km / h speeded in 2.9 s, until crossing at 330 km/h, despite the overweight inherent in its convertible status. For 70 to 80 kg extra on the scale, the spider 296 will maintain top notch stiffness.

Unveiled in the coming months, and potentially before the end of 2021, the Ferrari 296 Spider should be around € 300,000, ie an extension of around € 30,000 compared to the coupé.
