Navnit Motors, the official Ferrari Importer in Mumbai, introduced the 296 GTB. The car is an evolution of Maranello’s mid-rear-engined two-seater berlinetta concept. A new 663 cv 120° V6 coupled with an electric motor deliver a further 122 kW (167 cv). This is the first 6-cylinder engine installed on a road car sporting the Prancing Horse badge. The very first Ferrari V6 featured a 65 degree architecture and debuted on the 1957 1500 cc Dino 156 F2 single-seater.
This was followed in 1958 by bigger displacement versions on the front-envied sport prototypes – the 196 S and 296 S – and F1 cars, such as the 246 F 1. In 2015 Ferrari had inaugurated its Mumbai dealership, with Navnit Motors Pvt. Ltd chosen as the official dealer partner.
