Ferrari 296 GTB Assetto Fiorano package
The new Ferrari 296 is proof that a six-cylinder plug-in hybrid powertrain isn’t out of place in a world-class supercar — but what if we told you it can push the envelope even further? Enter the Ferrari 296 GTB Assetto Fiorano package, which reduces the car’s weight, includes special tires, implements additional aerodynamic enhancements, and even adds special livery to the mix.

Reduced Weight

The twin-turbo V6 engine and accompanying electric motors offer plenty of power, but dropping the weight of the car helps you make the most of it. The Assetto Fiorano package drops the 296 GTB’s weight through the extensive use of lightweight materials such as carbon fiber and a Lexan rear window. This isn’t simply a case of swapping some materials, though: Ferrari completely redesigned some components — such as the door panel — to reduce the car’s overall weight.

Tires and Shocks

The Assetto Fiorano package further enhances the Ferrari 296 with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 R high-performance tires that are specifically designed for use on the track. The new adjustable multimatic shock absorbers are similarly optimized for track use.

Aerodynamic Enhancements

The Assetto Fiorano variant generates an additional 10 kg of downforce over the standard 296 GTB thanks to the use of high-downforce carbon-fiber attachments on the front bumper.

Special Livery

Since the 296 Assetto Fiorano is a special version of an already special car, it makes sense that a cosmetic upgrade is available. This unique livery is inspired by the 250 Le Mans and spans the vehicle from front to back: the front bumper’s background embraces the central grille to create a hammer motif, running lengthwise to the roof and down to the spoiler, where it expands to surround the central exhaust. It’s eye-catching, of course — and it’s only available with the Assetto Fiorano package.
