Dulquer Salmaan is one of the popular actors in the Malayalam film industry. The actor is mostly known for his love for cars, and he even owns a large number of classic and modern cars in his garage. Dulquer, along with his father, owns the popular 369 Garage. The Malayalam actor recently bought a brand new Ferrari 296 GTB supercar. He purchased the car last week, and now we have a set of images that show the supercar on the road. This also happens to be the first Ferrari owned by a Malayalam actor in the industry.
The images have been shared by Car Crazy India on their Facebook page. The pictures were taken in Chennai. When we think of Ferrari, the first color that pops into our head is red. However, Dulquer Salmaan actually bought the car in a very different shade of red—Rosso rubino metallizzato. The registration number of the car is not clear in the pictures. It looks like the actor is waiting for the fancy 369 number for the Ferrari too.
This low-slung supercar owned by the actor is said to have red interiors and the car gets yellow calipers for an overall sporty appeal. The Ferrari 296 GTB is a beautiful-looking entry-level supercar. The images do not show the front of the car or the cabin. Dulquer was probably the person who was behind the wheel of this supercar.
The 296 GTB is a supercar that combines elegance and technology. It is powered by a 2.9-liter V6 engine that is paired with an electric motor. The hybrid petrol engine is tuned for performance like any other Ferrari. This hybrid setup generates a maximum of 818 PS, making it the most powerful V6 engine ever produced by Ferrari. The Ferrari 296 GTB can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.9 seconds, and the top speed is limited to 330 km/h.
Dulquer has several cars in his garage both in Kerala and Chennai. This newly bought Ferrari is most likely to be registered and used in Chennai with occasional visits to Kochi. The 296 GTB is said to be an entry-level supercar; however, nothing about it is entry-level. The car has a premium-looking cabin to provide maximum comfort to the occupants. High-quality materials have been used on the dashboard, seats, and doors. The steering wheel on this Ferrari is Formula 1 inspired, and it comes with all essential controls, including the Manettino dial. The Ferrari 296 GTB is priced at Rs 5.40 crore, ex-showroom, and depending on the color and customizations, this would go up even more.
Dulquer is a motorhead, and only a few weeks ago, we came across a video of Dulquer from Chennai in his brand new BMW 7-Series. The actor probably bought the sedan recently, and just like many other cars in his garage, this luxury sedan also has the fancy 369 registration. The car is loaded to the brim with features. Another leading actor and director from the Malayalam industry, Prithviraj, is also said to have bought a Porsche 911 GT3, but images of the car have not surfaced online yet. The actor is said to have bought the car with a manual gearbox.
