The Ferocia is my latest concept car and second stab at a Ferrari (after the Velocita). I decided to raise the design bar with the Ferocia after the 2012 Velocita lacked soul in it's design. And after more than a month of designing, revising, critiquing and 3D modelling I present the 630 Ferocia! The Ferocia is the big brother of the 458 Italia and takes many features of design over from that car, but in it's own way. It runs on a properly monstrous 630hp V10. It stampedes from 0-60 in 3.3 seconds and has a top speed of almost 210mph. The Ferocia is built to be ferocious, leading to it's name (Ferocia - Ferocity in Italian). Don't get in this stallion's way...__Thanks to contributors (for things like the logos, rims and rear view mirrors) and thanks to those on LM who have assisted me with the design process
Ferrari World Design Contest 2011 - Winner Ceremony

Seoul's Hongik University wins Ferrari World Design Contest 2011
Maranello, 19th July 2011 -- Students from Seoul's Hongik University have
won the Ferrari World Design Contest, a competition in which 50 highly
prestigious universities across the globe took up Ferrari's challenge of
imagining its cars of the future. The Korean school was chosen ahead of the
second-placed IED of Turin in the final with London's Royal College of Arts
finishing in third position.
The first three classified models are:
1) Eternità -- Kim Cheong Ju (Korea Rep.), Ahn Dre (Korea Rep.), Lee
Sahngseok (Korea Rep.) -- Hongik University (Seoul)
2) Xezri -- Samir Sadikhov (Azerbaigian) -- IED (Turin)
3) Cavallo Bianco -- Henry Cloke (Regno Unito), Qi Haitao (Cina) -- RCA
Following the prize-giving ceremony, Ferrari chairman Luca di Montezemolo
commented: "Nurturing the creativity of young people is a fundamental
strategy in every walk of life. The Ferrari World Design Contest represents
a window that we want to keep open on the world and the creative energy of
the next generation. I saw at first hand the many genuinely innovative
ideas that these talented youngsters sent us and could feel the enormous
passion and commitment that had gone into them. I am certain that some of
these suggestions will come to light in the Ferraris of the future."
The Seoul students provided the finest interpretation of Ferrari's design
brief for a thoroughbred hypercar brimming with new generation technologies
and materials, a car extreme ("hyper") not only in its architecture but
also in every other aspect. Having completed an initial 2D design, the
entrants then generated 3D models in 3D Autodesk® Alias as well as making
a physical 1:4 scale model with particular emphasis on detailing and the
car interior in addition to more functional concerns.
All of the design concepts focused on reducing fuel consumption through
alternative propulsion systems, particularly hybrid engines. Another common
thread was the Boosting of driving
pleasure through weight reduction. More geometric forms alternated with
sinuous, almost organic lines in the various design projects.
There were also two special prizes. The "Autodesk Design Award", for the
best use of Alias software in the design process, was presented by the
technical partner to the contest to Hongik school. The second prize, the
"Most Unexpected Technological Solution" award, went to the team from
Jiangnan University (China) for the audacious technical solutions contained
in The Drake concept. The prizes were presented by Brenda Discher,
Autodesk's Vice President Industry Market, and Ferrari CEO Amedeo Felisa.
The three finalists, however, received their prizes from Ferrari chairman
Luca di Montezemolo, CEO Amedeo Felisa, Paolo Pininfarina, chairman of the
Pininfarina Group which has partnered Ferrari in the styling of its cars
for over six decades, and Flavio Manzoni, director of the Ferrari Style
Centre, which organised the contest.

Custom Ferrari 458 Italia by Moorespeed: Hard Acceleration and Walk Around
This is the coolest 458 I have ever seen. Thank you to the owner for
putting on a good show.
Speaking with Moorespeed, I discovered the only modifications made to this
458 were the carbon fiber and the lowering. The owner did not want to wait
to receive the car from a dealership in the US, so he had the car flown
into Austin, where Moorespeed picked up the car. He told them, that if they
couldn't lower it by an inch within a week, he didn't want it anymore.
See detailed Moorespeed 458 photos on AUTOVOCE's Blog!

2011 Ferrari Xezri Concept
A new concept from Ferrari.
New images and details on the Ferrari Xezri Concept, the project by Turin
IED graduate Samir Sadikhov that won the 2nd prize at the Ferrari World
Design Contest 2011.
The Ferrari Xezri by Samir Sadikhov from Azerbaijan is a sportscar inspired
by wind for both the aesthetics and the aerodynamics, taking into
consideration the principles of "flexible aerodynamics".
The rear wing, positioned horizontally on the car's roof, is automatically
activated at speeds higher than 200 km/h, revealing an air intake that
allows to better cool the engine.
The Xezri project was selected for the "purity and elegance of its design,
proposed in future perspective. The shapes are reminiscent of some of the
most charming Ferrari of the past."
The 2nd place won by Turin IED follows the first prize received at the 2005
edition of the contest.
Samir Sadikhov received the award from Ferrari CEO Amedeo Felisa, Paolo
Pininfarina and Flavio Manzoni.
IED participated in the final stage of the contest with two other projects:
the 540 Pegaso by Giuseppe Ceccio, Giacomo Pierin e Matteo Politano and the
Ethesian by Alessandro Nardolillo, all graduated from the three-year
post-diploma course in Transportation Design -- academic year 2010-2011.
The three projects were selected by Ferrari among a total of 11 proposals,
developed by students as their final thesis for the course.
All the projects will be on display at the "Apriti IED -- Naturally
Powerful 2011″ exhibition, which will take place at the school
headquarters until the end of September.
The exhibition is free and open to the public from Monday to Friday,
9AM-1PM and 2PM-6PM -- closed from 6 to 21 August.
New 2012 Ferrari California Road Test
The new 2012 Ferrari California gets a power upgrade to 485 HP and loses
weight. The Drive Cannel had the opportunity to road test it. All the
detractors that coined the rear design of the California the "J Lo Butt"
must be blind....what's wrong with her Derriere? We like it. This Ferrari
is a wolf in sheep's clothing...if you want to cruise it will. If you want
to drift like Tanner Foust, it will. The slight against women, those
calling it woman's car, will just have to eat their words....plenty of
women can out drive men and this car proves it's worth in power and
handling. It's not an entry level Ferrari, there's no such thing.
2014 Ferrari F70 (Renderings)
You have probably seen the recent spyshots of the prototype Ferrari Enzo
replacement undergoing tests in Europe, but what could the actual
production version look like when the new model, reportedly named the F70,
hits showrooms in late 2013?
For now, this is a question that will likely remain mercifully answered,
but we have an interesting design study for the Ferrari F70 that was penned
by industrial designer and current employee of Pininfarina's German
subsidiary in Rüsselsheim, Constantin-Gabriel Radu.
The concept borrows elements from both the Ferrari 458 Italia as well as
the previous Enzo, combining curves with hard creases and a teardrop
glasshouse. If this design were to be produced, we would imagine that the
car would obtain more air vents both on the sides and more importantly, on
the rear end.
At last week's Beijing Motor Show, Ferrari previewed its new HY-KERS hybrid
system that's bound for the Enzo's successor and which links a V12 engine
to a pair of electric motors, one to power the car's auxiliary systems, and
the other to drive the rear wheels.
It is believed that that combined output of the twelve cylinder engine and
the electric motor will surpass the 900-horsepower mark.
