Ferrari drag race: Purosangue vs 812 GTS vs 296 GTB vs SF90

May 18, 2024 by

Mat’s jumped behind the wheel of the Ferrari Purosangue for this drag race, the brand’s first ever jacked-up four door model. Under the bonnet is a 6.5-litre naturally-aspirated V12 with 725hp and 716Nm of torque. This is sent to all four wheels via an eight-speed dual-clutch gearbox, however it’s quite heavy by Ferrari standards at 2,033kg.

Lined up next to the Purosangue is the 812 GTS, the only other V12-engined car here. It has a 6.5-litre engine with 800hp and 718Nm of torque, and this is sent to the rear wheels only via a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Not only is the 812 more powerful than the Purosangue, it’s also lighter at 1,645kg. This is also the only car here you can’t buy anymore, because it’s been replaced by the new Ferrari 12 Cilindri.

Next we have the Ferrari 296 GTB, the first of the hybrid offerings here. It’s packing a 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged V6 engine paired with an electric motor. Despite having half the engine capacity of the other two cars, it has 830hp and 740Nm of torque. Like the 812, it’s rear-wheel drive and it’s also the lightest car here tipping the scales at 1,470kg.
