Ferrari 206 GTB steering wheel and dashboard

A stunning plug-in hybrid, the 296 GTB is ushering in the age of the increasingly electrified supercar. Being a Prancing Horse, this model is no slouch in terms of performance, but it’s also extremely comfortable. In fact, the Ferrari 296 GTB’s interior is designed to help you make the most of your time behind the wheel with its driver-focused, feature-rich cockpit.

Interior Design and Features

Like every Ferrari, the 296 GTB is a driver-focused vehicle, and its cabin reflects that. Most of its instruments are located on the driver’s side of the cockpit, with the central instrument panel cradled by two visible buttresses — everything, in other words, is at the driver’s fingertips. In contrast, the passenger side of the vehicle is relatively minimalist, though there is a screen that offers the passenger a view of the car’s performance metrics as well as access to the infotainment system.

The 296 GTB’s design reflects Ferrari’s commitment to integrating the vehicle’s technical features into a uniform, assimilated look, with the full-digital interface taking center stage. Most of the steering wheel’s buttons — including the engine start button — are touch-capacitive. Even with its elegant, minimalist, digitally focused interior, though, the 296 GTB’s interior still emphasizes comfort, featuring Italian leather interior surfaces throughout.

Whether you opt for the standard 296 GTB or the carbon-fiber-rich Assetto Fiorano package, you’ll get a born performer that’s also supremely comfortable.
