The 296 GT3 produces 602 hp max power and 709 Nm peak torque. Ferrari has also removed the hybrid setup to comply with regulations, unlike the 296 GTB. Because of this, the 296 GT3 is down on power and torque by 228 hp and 31 Nm compared to the 296 GTB. It comes mated to a six-speed sequential gearbox with electronic clutch actuation. This has been done to keep the weight down. When compared, the 296 GTB uses an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission.

Advancement in the race car is in the suspension, which has been upgraded to aid handling. Removing the hybrid system from the 296 GT3 means the manufacturer could position the engine lower and farther than the standard car. It also means that the centre of gravity has been lowered and increased torsional rigidity. Ferrari also upgraded the brakes to add to the stopping power.

The cabin of the 296 GT3 has also been revised over the 488 GT3. There is a safety harness, air conditioning, adjustable pedals and a race-spec steering wheel. Ferrari also increased the wheelbase over the 296 GTB. This should help in increasing the stability of the 296 GT3. Generally, Ferrari built this recently unveiled supercar to be a much more athletic version of the 296 GTB.
