Ferrari 296 GTS seats

The Ferrari 296 GTS looks like nothing else that you might see on the roads of Milwaukee or Indianapolis—and everyone wants to know if this vehicle’s cabin will live up to the high expectations fostered by its first impressions. Rest assured, the Ferrari 296 GTS interior leaves nothing to be desired. The deep wells, striking curves, and clean, racing-inspired linework that distinguish this model’s cabin have been designed to emphasize the 296 GTS’s functional purity, and it’s no exaggeration to say that it looks just as good as it feels to drive.

Ferrari 296 GTS Design: A Striking Drop-Top Cabin

Although most of the Ferrari 296 GTS specs carry over from the Ferrari 296 GTB, the Ferrari 296 GTS interior differs in one key respect: GTS stands for “Gran Turismo Spider,” which means that this model features a retractable hard-top roof

It’s impossible to describe the experience of stepping into the 296 GTS without noting that you’ll be able to feel the wind racing through your hair on the open road. And since the roof can open or close in a mere 14 seconds, you can ensure that you always feel perfectly comfortable behind the wheel. Plus, you’ll have unlimited headroom when the roof opens up—along with new aerodynamic rear flaps that minimize any discomfort that the wind might cause. In other words, the Ferrari 296 GTS design is perfect for those who feel more cramped than cradled behind the wheels of other racetrack-ready coupes.

We covered the Ferrari 296 GTB interior when this model debuted last year, and we’d be happy to help you compare their specs in person if you’d like to learn more about your options!

Ferrari 296 GTS Design: A Digital Driver Interface

The cabin of the Ferrari 296 GTS features a clean and minimal design that eliminates distractions and fosters a seamless connection between driver and vehicle—and the centerpiece of the interior is the 100% digital cockpit display. This digital display was first employed in the SF90 Stradale—and here, it’s nestled into the dash upholstery directly behind the sport-style steering wheel.

The customizable digital display can show you just about any performance-related information that you’d like to see front-and-center, while other useful controls (including climate settings) are situated just to the right of the wheel, still within easy reach of the driver. When the engine is off, the display goes completely black, ready to spring to life again as soon as adventure calls.

What to Expect from the Ferrari 296 GTS Seats

The Ferrari 296 GTS seats two passengers—a driver and a single lucky companion. Italian leather covers just about every inch of the cabin, from the seats to the trimming, and even the technical components (including the keys, vents, and buttons) feel positively luxurious. 

The sculpted sport seats are not just highly functional. Their lines and curves mirror those of the leather that shields the digital display, creating a seamless, fully integrated look that unifies the cabin as a whole. Moreover, these lines are the perfect complement to the vehicle’s equally iconic exterior. 

For Ferrari, style and performance go hand-in-hand. Although these looks may seem extravagant, the 296 GTS is a true exotic that can easily go head-to-head with more conventional rivals like the Porsche 911.
