The author of the project is Daniel Soriano, currently working as Concept Surface Designer at Volvo. He explains “Since most modern cars nowadays are souless machines with more similarities to an electrodomestic than to an actual car, I wanted to create an homage to the old school generations of super cars.
He was part of the team that developed this
for the 2011 Ferrari World Design Competition.
After seven years Daniel decided to update it as a personal challenge to check his evolution and growth as a designer, after professional experiences at Lamborghini, Volvo Cars and Polestar among the others. As a result he decided to redesign and remodel the car from scratch, dubbing it Ferrari Aliante Barchetta.
I kinda dig it. Not sure how you get in and out of it, though. A couple surfaces are questionable. But beautiful renderings.
