Fer­rari’s fu­ture?

Matamata Chronicle - - What’s On -

A sleek de­sign with a strik­ing shape was the clear win­ner at this year’s Fer­rari de­sign chal­lenge.

For its Top De­sign School Chal­lenge, Fer­rari asked stu­dents at a se­lec­tion of top de­sign schools around the world to come up with their best car cre­ations.

The Man­i­festo, de­signed by six stu­dents at the ISD-Ru­bika in Va­len­ci­ennes, France, was the unan­i­mous win­ner of the ‘‘Gran Pre­mio As­so­luto’’ over­all prize, re­ports Au­to­blog.

A state­ment re­leased by the com­pany says the jury – made up of an im­pres­sive list of de­sign­ers, en­gi­neers, col­lec­tors, and driv­ers – was won over ‘‘by the com­plete­ness of the Man­i­festo de­sign as well as the stu­dents’ abil­ity to cre­ate a co­her­ent over­all vi­sion of the car span­ning its ex­te­rior, cabin and run­ning gear’’.

‘‘The spec­tac­u­lar door open­ing mech­a­nism also high­lights the evo­lu­tion of the in­te­rior func­tions, us­ing fu­ture-for­ward tech­nolo­gies. The ex­te­rior is in­stantly recog­nis­able de­spite the fact that it in­cor­po­rates cer­tain ortho­dox fea­tures.’’

A spe­cial men­tion went to the fu­tur­is­tic FL con­cept from Ger­many’s Hochschule Pforzheim school, which was the only de­sign that fo­cused solely on the cabin.

And the ‘‘Pre­mio Spe­ciale’’ award, de­cided by an on­line bal­lot, went to the de Es­fera, de­signed by three stu­dents from Hongik Univer­sity in Seoul, Korea.
