Ferrari Previews New 296 GT3

Ferrari offered a glimpse into its future on the GT racing scene with a preview of its new 296 GT3, the Italian manufacturer announced.

The model will replace the 488 GT3 which, in its standard and Evo 2020 configurations, has picked up 107 titles from its debut race to date, with 429 wins from 770 starts across multiple series, the company said, making it the most successful car in Prancing Horse history.

The design of the 296 GT3, taking away the aerodynamic and the characteristic elements of the racing version, has preserved the link to the production model, Ferrari said, which is inspired by cars such as the 1963 250 LM, Ferrari said.

The 296 GT3, already being assembled at the Oreca di Signes plants, will mark the return to the track of a Ferrari equipped with a 6-cylinder engine.

The new GT3 will begin development on the track in the coming months in view of its race debut, scheduled for 2023, the company said.
