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.

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.
SOUND of Ferrari 612 Scaglietti with 6 exhaust pipes (TC Concepts)
Nikola records very rare Ferrari 612 Scaglietti with 6 Exhausts made from TC Concepts.You can hear the
V12 engined car starting up and revving with brutal sound.This car has 5.7
liter V12 engine which produces 530 bhp and accelerates from 0 - 100 kmh in
The chances it will snow in February in Modena, Italy, are about the same
as George W. Bush's winning this year's Republican nomination for
President. Nonetheless, Ferrari chose its hometown in the middle of winter
to unveil the 533-hp, rear-drive 612 Scaglietti.
It snowed the night the press arrived, so the idea was to drive south the
next day to warmer climes—well, 10 miles south, to Ferrari's test track
at Fiorano. The sun emerged the next morning, although it was cold—36
degrees. So we carefully drove in a convoy of 612s from Modena to Fiorano
to get in a few quick laps.
The new 612 will sell for about $250,000, an increase of about five percent
over its predecessor, the nearly 12-year-old 456M GT. The 612 becomes the
first V-12 Ferrari to use an aluminum space frame and body, like the 360
Modena. The four-cam, 5.7-liter engine is fitted behind the front axle
line, and combined with the rear transaxle, 54 percent of the weight is
over the back wheels, a distribution that closely mirrors Mercedes' sort-of
rival, the $450,000 SLR McLaren.
In theory, this brings improved traction, handling, and braking. Maurizio
Manfredini, team leader for Ferrari's 12-cylinder cars, says 85 percent of
the 612's mass is inside the long 116.1-inch wheelbase, compared with just
70 percent on the 456M GT (wheelbase 102.4 inches, with 47 percent of the
weight on the rear wheels). The 612 is longer by 5.5 inches and wider and
taller than the old two-plus-two, and it weighs about 4100 pounds. That's a
couple hundred lighter than the 456M, a benefit of the 612's aluminum
All feedback is appreciated! Thanks for watching, Nikola

Ferrari FF Loud Startup

Today I went to Limerock which is a race track in northwest Connecticut for
the Ferrari racing days. To my surprise they had the new Ferrari FF on
display. I happened to be at the booth when they needed to move it so I
got to hear it start. It is extremely loud thanks to the 599 GTO parts
that trickeled down into this car. The Ferrari FF is incredible in person
and I am really looking forward to getting behind the wheel of one.
Stay tuned for in car footage from an extremely rare F40 LM on the track!

2013 Ferrari Ferocia Concept

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
