296 GT3 Overview

VISION & HISTORY

Last season, Ferrari unveiled its new GT3 racing car: The Ferrari 296 GT3. As the successor to the 488 GT3, the 296 GT3 follows in big footsteps, as its predecessor is considered the most successful car in the company's history, having won over 100 titles and almost 500 overall victories. But even the best can always be raised a bar. The new 296 GT3 represents a completely new approach in terms of design, handling, electronics and, with a V6 - 120° biturbo, also in terms of engine design. The new and unique concept covers not only the needs of pro drivers, who are solely concerned with winning, but also those of gentlemen drivers, who focus on pure driving fun on the track.

PERFORMANCE

The heart of the 296 GT3 is the engine. The era of the V8 ends here for the time being and now, just like on the road, you will find a turbocharged 3-liter V6 engine, arranged at a 120º angle. Depending on the Balance of Performance (BoP), the unit produces around 600 hp with a maximum torque of 710 Nm. The advances compared to the predecessor 488 GT3 include optimized aerodynamics, which demonstrate a 20% higher downforce level. The increase in performance and efficiency is even 24%. The diameter of the compressor wheel was further reduced by 5% and that of the turbo gearbox by 11%. But the improved design also has an impact on performance: The design was significantly influenced by factory and private drivers, so that not only the visibility and ventilation while driving, but also the steering wheel was optimized according to Formula 1 aspects.

DEVELOPMENT & sUSTAINABILITY

Development of the 296 GT3 focused on the weak points of its predecessor and on optimizing them. One goal was to lower the center of gravity in order to gain more leeway for weight distribution and setup. Another aspect was simplified access to all technical assemblies. This not only saves time when modifying various setups, but also increases the possible track time. For example, the components are now arranged in groups to ensure rapid installation and removal, thus reducing repair times.

Ferrari has not missed the leap to promoting a sustainable future in racing as well. With this in mind, the 296 GT3 has been further developed in such a way that it has lower fuel consumption than its predecessor and is also compatible with the new biofuels of the world's leading GT3 series.

DESIGN

Ferrari’s future in GT racing is sinuous in form, enfolding the volumes of the 296 GTB, redefining them to meet the requirements of the track and performance. The design of the latter already refers back to vehicles such as the 250 LM of 1963, a perfect combination of simplicity and functionality. The Ferrari engineers have been able to define an aerodynamic configuration within the homologation performance window by reducing ride height sensitivities with the aim of improving handling and driveability. Intuitiveness, visibility and accessibility are also critical to the development of the cabin design without neglecting essential aspects such as safety and comfort. The cabin was completely redesigned over the 488 GT3, in response to input from factory drivers and customers. The result is a cockpit that allows its occupant to quickly and effectively find the best driving position, with the main functions always within easy reach. As a special feature, many controls and functions have moved to the new Formula 1 single seater-inspired steering wheel.
