Ferrari hasn't needed any help in the design department lately. The 458 Italia set a new benchmark for sleek, inspired, modern supercar design, and the Ferrari FF followed it with a shooting brake body to die for. But that's not stopping these College of Creative Studies, Detroit students from bending their imaginations to the task of what future Ferraris might look like.
That's a very good thing. Some of the artwork glimpsed here looks like it could very well end up in actual sheetmetal, even if it's still up in the air whether any ever will.
The video is part of Ferrari's ongoing World Design Challenge contest, which asks design students around the globe to pen a "pure hypercar with technology and materials from the latest generation, a car with an extreme architecture, while functional under every aspect." So far, so good.
The College of Creative Studies design team is among the finalists in the global contest. They'll fight it out from here against six other teams from Spain, Korea, Italy, England, and France, for the final title. The winners will get an internship at Ferrari and cash prizes.
