Ferrari 296 GTB Completes a Lap of the Nurburgring in Less than 7 Minutes

 

The Nurburgring is considered the ultimate examination for cars. Car manufacturers from around the globe compete to achieve the fastest time around the Nordschleife to claim boasting privileges. Nevertheless, Ferrari is the least concerned automaker.

In order to see how the Ferrari 296 GTB matches up against other hybrid supercars in its category, the team at Sport Auto took on the challenge. The engineers from Ferrari were present for this attempt.

Christian Gebhardt took control of the 296 GTB and established a lap time of 6 min 58.70 seconds, making it the initial Ferrari to dip below the 7-minute mark. The 296 GTB was just over a second faster than the V12-powered Lamborghini Aventador SV. However, it fell short in beating the Porsche 911 GT2 RS’ time by half a second.

The Ferrari 296 GTB is powered by a 3.0-liter, V6 engine that generates 654 hp. It is paired with an electric motor that increases the overall output to 818 hp and 546 lb-ft. The car used by Sport Auto for the run was equipped with the Assetto Fiorano pack, which reduces the overall weight to 1470 kg dry.
