Default Rendered Speculation: Ferrari F430 Concept







The current generation Ferrari F430 succeeded the 360 back in 2004 and since then we have seen special versions created including the F430 Scuderia which was unveiled by Michael Schumacher at last year's Frankfurt Motor Show. Having been on the market now for four years and taking into account its predecessor's life span was six years, we can only assume the Italians have development well under way for a replacement. Obviously at this point we have no idea what the future may bring, but that hasn't stopped Italian designer Luca Serafini from producing a number of other quit stunning renderings of a concept of what the successor to the F430 may look like.

The design follows Luca's tried and tested process: Brainstorming - sketches - modelling – concept. “Feeling the need to replace the 430, i started looking closer the classic Ferrari models. It was important for me to reach in the new concept a path through the past,” commented Luca.

The next step for the Italian Designer is to create 1:4 scale model and judging by these renderings we can only hope someone in Ferrari is watching, you can check out some more of his work at his deviantART home page here.
IMHO this thing looks really good!

nice!, although the front grill really is a bit iffy, could only imagine what this would look like should it see the light of day as a GT racer, with the enormous GT wing, sponsors and aero parts.
why didnt they give this guy to do the california ALONE?

The wheels are too big to be realistic. I think it has abit of a viper taste to it.

That looks pretty cool, but its still a little too rough I think... I like the maserati influence but it might be a little too much influence. The rear needs a lot of work too...

I thought the 612 scaglietti was the newest ferrari and they were not gonna make a replacement for the F430... was car and driver wrong?

^The Scaglietti's the oldest car in Ferrari's lineup. They won't have the F430 replacement for a while. (The 360 lasted 6 years.) This is just a random art student work.

supposedly, the F480 is being confused with the next gen supercar...

^ Good to see it's not the overrated iPhone

The front end looks too long for a mid-engined car

maybe it isn't.... some sources tell me it may just be front engined, tranny out back scenario, same thing that we... err ... same thing some other design teams have been wanting to go with for some time now
