Ferrari hasn’t revealed too much, but we’ve got a pretty good guess.
Ferrari is usually very tight-lipped about its upcoming models. We saw Purosangue test mules for years before getting an official confirmation on Ferrari’s first SUV very recently. Now, the company has teased a new supercar that is set to be unveiled today and we're all left guessing!
The teaser seen on Ferrari’s social media handles is rather cryptic. There’s not much you can make out from the fast cuts of the video, just the blue paintwork of the car and the yellow wheel centres with the prancing horse. The rest is a mystery. However, the caption reads ‘Are you ready to meet our newest mid-rear-engined berlinetta?’
This confirms the engine layout and also pretty much confirms this to be the drop-top version of the 296 GTB, set to be named the 296 GTS. Why do we think so? Well, it’s too early in the F8 Tributo’s life cycle for us to see a hardcore Pista-esque variant and we already have the F8 Spider.
On top of that, we’ve not heard any rumours of an all-new mid-rear-engined model, or seen any suspicious test mules which only leaves the possibility of the 296 GTS. Expect it to have the same 819bhp and 740Nm twin-turbo V6 and e-motor setup as the standard 296 GTB.
In terms of styling, expect the 296 GTS to be rather similar from the front with a revised rear-end to accommodate a folding hard-top.
We won’t have to wait too long for an official unveil though, stay tuned!
