The Prancing Horse automaker has recently revealed the three winning projects of its 2016 Top Design School Challenge.
The ultimate “Gran Premio Assoluto” overall prize was awarded to six students from the ISD-Rubika in Valenciennes, France for their work on the seemingly spectacular Ferrari Manifesto concept. The jury seem to have been impressed by the very sleek design and also by the way it oddly opens its doors to provide fitting access to the very futuristic cockpit.
The Manifest was followed by the Ferrari FL by Roman Egorov – which was awarded a special mention by the jurors as it was the only project to solely focus on the interior of the Ferrari models. This one was conceived by a Russian student from the Hochschule Pforzheim in Germany and his vision for the future of Ferrari interiors included an updated human machine interface and it also eschewed the typical carbon fiber and leather arrangement in favor of more noble materials.
Additionally, an online voting competition had the Ferrari de Esfera concept as the winner of the “Premio Speciale” – the project was conceived by three students from the Hongik University in Seoul, South Korea. All three projects have envisioned a design befitting the Ferrari in the year 2040 and the jury was made up of Ferrari designers, drivers, and famous collectors: Nicola Boari, Franco Cimatti, Aldo Colonnetti, Rodolfo Gaffino Rossi, Jay Kay, Flavio Manzoni, Nick Mason, Andrea Militello, Paolo Pininfarina, as well as Scuderia Ferrari Formula 1 driver Sebastian Vettel.
