Citing its reason for awarding the Ferrari 296 GTB the top plaudit in the Production Car category, the jury declared: “Creating a form this beautiful and organic whilst still complying with all current regulations and giving the car an incredibly high level of technology and performance, is a truly impressive feat. The legendary sports prototype racers of the 1960s have informed the Ferrari 296 GTB’s design and the end result is a superb, contemporary interpretation of a classic design language”.Ferrari 296 GTB_PHEV

The prize-giving ceremony was held last weekend at the celebrated ADI Design Museum as part of Milan Design Week.

The Ferrari 296 GTB is an evolution of Ferrari’s mid-rear-engined two-seater sports berlinetta concept a.k.a. sports coupe. As per its naming convention, the car’s name is a combination of its total displacement (2,992 cc) and number of cylinders. The GTB acronym stands for Gran Turismo Berlinetta. Hailed as nothing short of a revolution for the Maranello-based company, it introduced a brand-new 120° V6 engine coupled with a plug-in (PHEV) electric motor capable of unleashing up to 830 cv (819 hp). This is the first Ferrari road car to have a V6 engine with a V angle of 120° and coupled with an electric motor. It thus redefines the whole concept of fun behind the wheel to deliver pure emotions not just when being pushed to its limits but also in day-to-day driving.Ferrari 296 GTB_V6 Engine
