Ferrari CascoRosso: An Inspired Study for a F12berlinetta Replacement
Dec 10, 2013 13:20
The F12berlinetta has only been in the market for a year but that doesn't mean Ferrari isn't already working on its replacement.
Aspiring designer Dejan Hristov visualized his idea of what Ferrari's next V12 two-seater should look like. Read all about his thought process behind the creation of his concept. He calls it the CascoRosso.
From Dejan Hristov: "The Ferrari CascoRosso is a two seater commercial car, which is inspired from the models of Ferrari Motor Sport as they developed through history. It is a symbiotic of style from the modern Ferrari bodies and the legendary Ferrari classics. One of those classics is the Ferrari 250 GTO from witch I got the main inspiration for this model. The idea was for the CascoRosso to be reincarnation of the 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO, a modern, futuristic version of it.
Next year, Ferrari is celebrating 50 years since the birth of the 250 GTO, the world’s most expensive car. I imagined the model as a successor to the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta with front engine, but also as a hybrid with battery placement behind the cabin, that enables better distribution of the weight.
Instead of wing-mirrors, the model has two cameras with wide focus range generating one picture on the camera display showing side view mirror picture and rear view mirror picture. This system simplifies the driving giving better clarity, improves the aerodynamics because there aren't wing-mirrors and the cameras are integrated in the car-body and there is no need for rear window.
The front lights are hidden behind a shutter which opens automatically when the light are turned on.
The doors are imagined to open in attractive way and you don't need much space to open them. When opening, one part of the door enters the body of the car and that is one of the characteristics of this design that makes it unique."
