No, this isnt a new Ferrari supercar, not officially anyway. The striking mid-engine Ferrari Aurea that we hear may make its world premier at a gathering of automotive design types somewhere in a neutral country in Europe is the work of little-known Italian design studio DGF and students from Florence University.

The design group teamed with nearby Ferrari (including Ferraris Stefano Carmassi, who was responsible for the aerodynamic package on the Enzo) to conceive and design the ultimate F1-inspired road car. Aurea is the same length as a 360 Modena but weighs 300 pounds less than Ferraris volume model.

Power comes from a 360-derived 500-hp 4.0-liter V8, pushing the Aurea to a theoretical 0-62 mph in 3.9 seconds, and to a top speed of 202 mph , 19 mph more than the 360.

Yes I agree infact this design doesnt appeal to me at all . I hope they dont put such a car into production. The specs are interesting though

Cheers

An open letter to a man who thinks he designs the best cars in the world

Dear Chris Bangle

It is good to know that you have designed such beautifully ugly cars like the BMW 7 series, the Z4 and their like. Its great that you have done a big social-misdeed by letting other designers get influenced by your work. Please, as a kind request, retire away peacefully into the Carribeans, take away your few million dollars worth of increments and retirement benefits.....

.... but hell leave the car-design community ALONE!!!!

It's the illegitimate love child of the Enzo and the 360. i guess these areworrying times for ferrari enthusiasts.
it's blasphemous. i think it's good enough to be ferrari's worst design study ever.

Looks like nobody likes this one. No problem, give it to me. Looks very agressive unlike other Ferraris. Different, but, I wouldn't mind.
The interiors are fantastic.
