Seeing USD's Ferrari Project F

Ugur Sahin Design (USD), a Dutch design company founded in 2007, have developed a number of concept vehicles for a variety of clients over the last few years. But perhaps their most impressive project to date is the Corvette-based Soleil Anadi prototype, which was built in 2011 and shown off at the Top Marques car show in Monaco that year.

And while most of their other concepts remain as digital models, however gorgeous they may be, hopefully their latest project will make the extraordinary leap to reality.

The car in question is a Ferrari-based model mysteriously called the 'Project F' in USD’s correspondence. Although go to their website and it’s found under the title 'Ferrari FORTIS Concept'. So mystery solved.

What’s less clear is everything else about the car. Ugur Sahin Design are keeping quiet for the moment, saying only that it’s based on a Ferrari 458 platform, and that the car is a one-off designed for an undisclosed client.

It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that the Ferrari FORTIS is radically different in appearance to the 458, and major surgery is going to be required for the donor car to be transformed into USD’s vision. Not one body panel is shared between the two, and the resulting car has more in common with the LaFerrari than anything else.
It also may prove tricky to make that ludicrously low roofline and extremely narrow, slit-like windscreen work in the real world. It might look good, but the driver’s field of vision is going to be extremely limited by the extreme proportions. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | UGURSAHINDESIGN | DISENO-ART]
