Being a designer for Ferrari is second on my list of dream jobs, right below working as a Disney Imagineer, and slightly above writing for an automotive website. I’m not the only one though, it’s a popular dream, which is why you get thousands of random design or engineering students coming up with their own vision of the new Ferrari flagship every year. The internet is swimming with independent designs, and still, finding a really original one is difficult.
Israeli designer Amir Glinik has my attention though. His concept of a V4 motorcycle is based on the Ferrari Enzo, and I love it. It has beautiful vintage lines that capture the original Ferrari design nicely, and yet it’s almost 100% aluminum to keep weight down, and has a drive by wire computerized system.
Check out the pictures:
The rider can manage the engine with a system based on the Ferrari engine management computer with a modified all weather touch screen for easy use. It has hand controls influenced by the throttle controls of F16 fighter jets, and I think the best part is when you remove the fairings. I thought the Ducati Sport 1000 was pretty naked, but this thing, however imaginary, is stunning with it’s clothes off. There is really no chance that this will ever become a reality, but it’s nice to look at, and pretend.
