Ferrari’s design director has imagined what a spacecraft would look like if it was designed by the famous Italian company. Flavio Manzoni, who is a lifelong sci-fi fan, said the project was a bit of fun, but the results are breathtakingly beautiful.
The design for the spaceship includes signature shapes from some of Ferrari’s most impressive supercars and of course, a flash of red. The spacecraft, which was inspired by classic sci-fi books and films, started as a series of sketches and was then turned into a realistic-looking rendering, Formtrends.com reported.
Flavio Manzoni came up with the concept and then Guillaume Vasseur built the 3D model, with Guglielmo Galliano taking care of the rendering and post production.
The finished result looks sleek and streamlined but aggressive, and is recognisable as a Ferrari design despite the craft’s lack of wheels and prancing horse badge.
The front ‘spoiler’ of the craft bears some resemblance to one from a Formula One car, while the flicked wing and tail shapes look like they are borrowed from the LaFerrari and FXX K models. The body of the craft is subdivided into two, with a red ‘line’ running through the middle of its polished metal body.
Its wings seem to wrap round the lower part of the body and to give it a look that’s slightly similar in shape to a mantaray. The craft may also seem slightly familiar to children of the 1980s, who have seen Disney’s Flight of the Navigator, because of its streamlined shape and metal body.
