Ferrari meets football, or here in the States, Scuderia meets soccer.
Zlatan Ibrahimović is one of the world’s most famous soccer players. With 31 trophies won throughout his career, he’s amazing at his sport and pushes the entire sport forward with his skill, dedication, and talent. And as Zlatan is to soccer, Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc are to Formula One. Having taken first and second place for Ferrari at this past Bahrain Grand Prix, Ferrari’s F1 drivers and Zlatan have a lot in common, and it’s no wonder they got together to take the new 296GTB around the Fiorano Circuit.

The car they drove even matched the success of their drivers. The new Ferrari 296GTB is a first for Ferrari on many fronts: it’s the first Ferrari-badged car to be powered by a V6 engine, the first hybrid Ferrari since the LaFerrari. The V6 engine and electric motor combine to give the car 819 horsepower, combining incredible power and performance with the futurism and environmental consciousness of a hybrid powertrain. Charles Leclerc, Carlos Sainz, and Zlatan Ibrahimović never stop getting better at what they do, and neither does Ferrari.
