Ferrari 296 GTB v Ferrari SF90: DRAG RACE

Thanks to everyone for lending us their vehicles:
– Ferrari :

We know you have actually been waiting for this one!

We have actually got 2 extraordinary supercars going head-to-head over the quarter-mile! The question is, can the more recent 296 GTB beat the almighty tri-motor ? Well, let's take a closer look.

Starting with the 296 GTB, it's powered by a 3-litre twin-turbo V6 paired with an electrical motor. These drive the rear wheels and integrate to produce 830hp and 740Nm of torque. It still remains beautiful light, tipping the scales at 1,470 kg.

Then we have the SF90. It comes geared up with a 4-litre twin-turbo V8 paired with 3 electrical motors – 2 at the front and one at the back. Combined, they produce an eye-watering 1,000 hp and 800Nm, pressing this power through all four wheels. It's a bit much heavier than the 296 GTB, however, at 1,570 kg.

So how will this play out? The SF90 may have more power, however the 296 is lighter! Will the weight difference prove to be definitive? There's just one method to learn … LET'S RACE!

    The rolling start races were really much closer than I expected. That 296 is an incredible car

      I wonder if yianni is short shifting in SF90 but 296 is impressive 100-200 kph in 4.2 sec is insane same as 765LT
      Thats why 296 is pulling in rolling races
      But early start SF90 is bit quicker

      And probably would be more fun at normal speeds as well cause it’s rwd rather than awd

      Yianny is 100kg heavier than Matt. If they switch cars, the outcome would be different.

      @SamTV YTIm pretty sure the 296 runs a 9.6-9.8 quarter mile on a prepped surface.

    Matts idea of “going sideways, all over the place” is completely different to ours in Australia 😂😂

      Probably feels a bit different when you’re gọi g 100mph+ though with 800bhp+

      same here in south Africa. Matt just soft

      @Hassan Magram The only difference with middle east is that he doesn’t roll the Ferrari with people (or part of) being thrown out of the windows.

    I’m surprised by the 296 being that close considering the rwd and 200hp less, very nice cars both of them

    1. Ken2023 Avatar

      Look who’s driving the SF90, it tells you everything.

    2. EvilTurkey Avatar

      SF90 is 100kg + Yani heavier so that says enough

      Sono due auto sbagliate di progettazione.
      Inutilmente Pesanti e ibride. per non parlare della prima Ferrari v6 turbo🤮.
      Per poi proporre uno stupido suv v12 ..
      un mondo al contrario

    4. Ken2023 Avatar

      @EvilTurkey he’s also shown consistently over these drag videos that’s he’s not the best at it.

    Really love how the 296 GTB’s design tips its hat to Ferrari’s older classic designs yet manages to look modern and fresh at the same time. Great job as usual Ferrari !

      296 GTB is as gorgeous as even Dodge Viper GTS 1996.

      Looks like a step in the wrong direction to me tbh. The f8 tributo and the 488 style looks miles better to me. This is too boxy and squarish, also looks too generic, without the Ferrari badge it could be any run of the mill supercar

  11. Big_Gooch Avatar

    Both are incredible cars, but I was most impressed with the 296. Really would not have expected that❤

      Yep. As fast as even TS040 Hybrid.

    The 296 really holds its own against the SF90. Considering the cost difference the 296 is a bargain!

    1. Purwanti Allan Avatar

      296 GTB also only costed $103.000. On par with even 512BB.

    When I first saw the teasers for the 296, my immediate thought was that they’d finally brought some proper style and elegance back into the range… truly stunning and with the performance and sound to boot! Incredible bit of kit

      Clearly not

    That 296 is actually beautiful. It’s like the first time in a while that Ferrari made one of their supercars look more like a sports car, and the lines are just seductive

    1. Gapson76 Avatar

      It doesnt look that great tbh. The back looks wierd and the front too poonty

    Never saw Matt and Yianni this serious! Meaning both the cars are beast and if quarter mile is covered rain in 9.9 sec it would be amazing interesting to see them on a sunny day track!
