    Default 296 GTB Test Drive

    Very excited, as I've been invited on a two day test drive of the 296 next week, at Millbrook then on the road.
    It'll be interesting to see how it compares to our 360 and Cali T - it'll be a replacement for one/both.
    I do like that the 296 has a decent amount of luggage space for touring.

    Well,
    Got to say I was mightily impressed with the 296 - and more importantly, so was my partner, she loved it!
    It may be phenomenally fast, but it was so nice at normal road-speeds - easy to drive, smooth, beautiful ride quality, compact, very nicely appointed (build quality looks very good) and with a good sized front boot.
    On top of that, around the Alpine Course at Millbrook it was truly amazing, the grip and feel were unreal, with brakes that will rearrange your internal organs.
    Some nice touches, my favourite being the it can be set in a soft suspension (bumpy setting) in either Sport or Race modes - perfect for crap UK roads!

    So impressed, we're looking to place an order

    Fantastic! Look forward to seeing what colour combo and configuration you go for.

    Probably the new dark red metallic, with anthracite wheels, beige/black interior, bucket seats and a bit of carbon
