It starts racing next year, but testing is underway.
Ferrari’s brand image is heavily influenced by racing, and this extends far beyond Formula One. Here’s a video of the future Ferrari 296 GT3 in development at Ferrari’s Fiorano test track as an example.
In compared to the last teaser, which only showed the race car in darkness, here is a considerably better look at the 296 GT3. The car’s body is camouflaged, but Ferrari’s development team can’t hide the aerodynamic tweaks that improve the coupe’s track performance.
The lower fascia has been altered and now has a concave curve against the ground. The splitter is more noticeable, and each corner has vertical parts. Canards are also seen on the body’s outer margins. Louvers adorn the tops of each front fender. A vent is added to the hood around the middle.
The wider track, which necessitates redesigned bodywork around the doors in comparison to the road car, can be seen from the rear three-quarter perspective. The rear fenders have also been stretched by the designers.
The engine is not visible through the rear deck, unlike the production 296 GTB. However, it looks that the panel has little vents.
Two circular exhaust pipes protrude from the back end. It has a far more utilitarian appearance than the road-legal version’s trapezoidal outlet in the centre. Although both cars have a prominent diffuser, the race car’s is larger.
In addition to the spy film, Ferrari announced that the Ferrari 296 GT3 had completed its Fiorano examination. In addition to pit stop checks, the development comprised a mix of running a few laps and doing lengthier stints. Alessandro Pier Guidi, a two-time winner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans GTE Pro class, was one of the test drivers.
“I’m quite pleased with how the two days of testing went in Fiorano. The Ferrari 296 GT3 was a joy to drive and extremely precise “In Ferrari’s unveiling, Guidi noted. “Obviously, at this point, the effort centred on testing the systems and ensuring critical reliability, and we are pleased with the information we gathered.”

Because electrical assistance is not permitted under racing regulations, the 296 GT3 will use a non-hybrid version of the GTB’s twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6. It will make its racing debut in 2023, replacing the 488 GT3 and 488 GT3 Evo.
