A 2023 Ferrari 296 GTB Visits Jay Leno’s Garage

In this video, Jay Leno gets to drive a 2023 Ferrari 296 GTB and give us his thoughts about this new hybrid V6-powered supercar from the Italian marque.

The Ferrari 296 GTB is the brand’s new ‘entry-level’ mid-engined supercar and is being touted as their latest “gateway” to experiencing Ferrari’s race-bred DNA.

Taking center stage for the Ferrari 296 GTB’s performance is its mid-mounted 120 degree “hot V” 2.9L twin-turbocharged V6 hybrid engine. Through the petrol-driven component alone, the unit is able to produce 645 hp. When the electric motorpowered by a 7.45 kwh batteryis on full blast, that adds another 167 hp for a grand total of 830 hp (819 bhp) and 546 lb-ft of torque.

An 8-speed dual clutch transmission, said to be the quickest shifting of its kind, sends power to the rear-wheels. This helps the new-age Berlinetta sprint from 0-100 km/h in just 2.9 seconds, while 0-200 km/h can be achieved in a mere 7.3 seconds, then on its way to a top speed of more than 205 mph.

Ferrari enthusiast and collector David Lee lent his yellow Ferrari 296 GTB to Jay Leno for a test drive. Leno found the 296 GTB to be more enjoyable to drive compared to the faster and more powerful SF90 Stradale hybrid.
