DubiCars Exotic Car Of The Week – 2023 Ferrari 296 GTB: Hybrid Performance Supercar Wrapped In Gorgeous Italian Design

Think of exotic supercars, and we immediately remember the Italians. Their flamboyant machines offer exhilarating performance and have always managed to capture the hearts and bedroom walls of mortals regardless of age. While most of the world used hybrid tech to make efficient machines, some took it as another route to enhance performance. One such example is the Ferrari 296 GTB.

The 296 GTB is regarded as Ferrari’s first production car with a V6 engine. This move from Italians will ensure the horse continues to prance in the current times of sustainable mobility. The Ferrari 296 GTB is our pick on this week’s edition of DubiCars Exotic Car Of The Week. Already enticed to buy one? This particular brand new 2023 Ferrari 296 GTB from Steer Well Cars in Dubai is listed on the DubiCars. 


Ferrari introduced the 296 GTB introduced in 2021. Everyone went haywire over the fact that it was a V6, but the story was something else. More on this later. Back in the day, if a car from Ferrari didn’t have a V12 engine, it was not given a Ferrari badge. Instead, they were coined as Dino until 1947.

However, due to modern times and stricter regulations, even brands such as Ferrari are forced to use lower displacement engines. As a result, the supercar maker uses the Ferrari badge on their modern cars despite not featuring a V12 engine. 

Other 296 Models

The name 296 GTB is derived from the supercar’s engine. ‘29’ stands for the engine capacity and the ‘6‘ denotes the number of cylinders. While the GTB stands for Gran Turismo Berlinetta meaning Grand Tourer Coupe. Ferrari offers the 296 in three versions:

  • Ferrari 296 GTB (Coupe)
  • Ferrari 296 GTS (Droptop)
  • Ferrari Assetto Fiorano (Track-Focused Coupe)
