Turbo Car Club TurboClub.com Ferrari V6 Twin Turbo plug-in hybrid supercar unveiled, the 296 GTB

Ferrari V6 Twin Turbo plug-in hybrid supercar unveiled, the 2021 296 GTB mid-rear-engined two-seater Berlinetta.

The 2021 296 GTB is the Italian firm‚Äôs first road car to come with a V configuration 6-cylinder Twin Turbo Hybrid engine, delivering 830hp total power output.

Powering the new model is an all-new, 120-degree¬†twin-turbocharged V6 engine, displacing 3.0 litres¬†‚Äď though Ferrari brands the 2992cc engine as a 2.9-litre unit, thus its name, with the ‘6’ referring to the cylinder count ‚Äď developing¬†487kW, thanks to advanced combustion chamber technology and ‘hot vee’ turbocharger positioning.

The car’s hybrid system was specifically touted for cutting pedal response times to zero, making it feel very responsive to the driver’s commands.

It uses a high voltage battery with a 7.45kWh capacity that is located under the floor to minimise volume and weight. The cooling system, structure and fixing points are integrated into a single component.

It’s paired to a¬†plug-in hybrid system¬†comprising a 7.45kWh lithium-ion battery and a 123kW electric motor, combining for a total of¬†610kW¬†and¬†740Nm.

The 296 GTB is also the first Ferrari road car to sport a V6 turbo with the turbos installed inside the vehicle. This helps lower the centre of gravity and reduce engine mass while delivering high levels of power.

The engine is said to be capable of an 8500rpm redline ‚Äď just shy of the cut-off for the 812 Superfast’s naturally-aspirated V12.

Ferrari claims a 2.9-second 0-100km/h sprint time for the 296 GTB and a 7.3-second 0-200km/h time, towards a top speed of over 330km/h.

The new architecture also led to the development of a more linear exhaust line located in the upper part of the engine compartment. The shape of the exhaust reduces back pressure and contributes to boosting performance, Ferrari said.

Meanwhile, the more traditional internal combustion engine and the gearbox are cooled by two radiators installed at the front of the car, ahead of the front wheels, where there are also two condensers for the high-voltage battery cooling. The hot air is evacuated along the underbody, to avoid it interfering with the cooling air to the intercoolers along the upper part of the flanks.

Ferrari California T Twin Turbo V8

 Ferrari California T a worthy successor to the iconic Ferrari F40 V8 Twin Turbo!

Finally Ferrari have seen the writing on the wall for a while now with the new F1 2014 Season looming between the Twin Turbo powered Formula One factory backed turbo cars about to take to our TV screens for the next exciting years battle.

While their major luxury car manufacturers and competitors have been producing Turbocharged factory production vehicles for quite some years now, Ferrari have also come to the party now with a slightly retro California ‘T’! At least to my eyes anyway! And that’s not a bad thing by any means, with its¬†retractable hard top which transforms the California T from a cheeky coup√© into a supine spider in under 15 seconds.

Ferrari quote that due to “zero turbo lag” the 8-cylinder twin IHI turbo endowed engine combines phenomenal performance combined with blistering acceleration! This is produced with a torque curve that adapts to suit each gear change resulting in¬†reduced fuel consumption and less¬†emissions through to 100 Kilometres per hour from standstill in 3.6 Seconds.

316 km/h is only a short jail sentence away after you exceed those first few seconds with your foot to the floor.

Of course being cosseted in all that fine bovine stitched hide in immaculate seats by Lear, the HARMAN BECKER Infotainment system is only out done by the near instantaneous Getrag Dual-clutch F1 transmission gear changes harmonising with the V8 and 755 Nm (77 kgm) @ 4750 rpm of torque being melded with the unfortunate tarmac below the beefy Bridgestone or Pirelli Tyres.

Fortunately the Brembo Carbon Ceramic Braking System has the required balls to retain the 412 kW (560 cv) @ 7500 rpm if you dont and wont unleash it, as I am sure the Ferrari test driver did before you bought it.

1990 Ferrari F40 One of only 1315 produced Twin turbo V8 (478hp)
The F40 was to a large extent an evolution of the GTO in both form and concept. Though not designed for a particular racing series, it was a car that could be driven to a track and raced competitively at a professional level. It was a leap forward from the GTO in aerodynamic, structural, and performance terms. As befitted a car designed with such dynamic purpose, it had a somewhat spartan interior: the focus was unification of man and machine, combining for awesome acceleration, handling, speed, and presence.

The F40 was the last car introduced and commissioned by Enzo Ferrari himself. Its introduction and its name coincided with Ferrari’s 40th anniversary as an automobile constructor. The car was a celebration of the marque and the man seeking to safely provide owners with a race car for the street, embodying all the finest elements of 1987 automotive engineering.

The F40 employed a clutch and transaxle assembly identical to the GTO, but for a change in the gear ratios. This was a fully synchronised 5-speed manual system with hydraulically actuated single-plate clutch.

The transmission and differential were both housed in magnesium and aluminum alloy cases. To aid in optimal weight distribution, the transmission sat behind the differential, drive going through 180¬į from the crankshaft to the end of the driveshaft. Gear selection was accomplished by solid rods and forks to ensure positive engagemnt in all conditions. The F40 was also endowed with a transmission oil cooler. Optionally, the F40 could be ordered with a non-synchromesh unit.

The F40’s heart was its engine, a 2,936cc twin turbocharged, alloy 90¬į V8 putting out an astonishing 478bhp at 7000rpm (163bhp / liter) and 424 lb-ft of torque at 4500rpm.
The engine was substantially evolved from that in the GTO, its displacement, compression ratio, and maximum boost pressure all having been raised. The other basic statistics were the same: dual overhead cams controlling four valves per cylinder, a dry sump lubrication system, separate electronic ignition and fuel injection systems for each bank of cylinders and a Weber-Marelli engine control system.

The forged pistons were redesigned to improve combustion efficiency, and the IHI turbochargers were water-cooled although the Behr intercoolers remained air-to-air. The large tube-steel exhaust system was improved, most notably with a revised wastegate, and by the inclusion of catalytic converters. A horizontally mounted muffler exhausted gasses through three large tail pipes located centrally between the twin rear undertray diffusers.
