This is Rossa, an almost forgotten Ferrari concept car

This is a concept car concept that was created to celebrate Pininfarina's 70th anniversary and also represents Testarossa which represents the Ferrari's iconic model designed by the same Italian famous auto design house, so it was named the Ferrari Pininfarina Rossa

In addition to paying homage to the past, and also giving sneak previews for the future, for example with the rounded taillights which in a few years later were applied on the Ferrari Enzo.

This inspiring concept car was designed by Ken Okuyama, a well-known automotive designer while he still worked for Pininfarina and the same figure behind the birth of Kode 57 and Kode 0, two unique cars which were first introduced in 2016 and 2018.

As some of our readers have shown, there are some similarities between Kode 57 or k.o 57 and Rossa. The Kode 57 looks more like a futuristic version of the Rossa concept with a sharpened design and more aggressive appearance, thanks to more plump front fascia and a large rear diffuser.

Back to the Pininfarina Rossa concept, which was made purely as a showcar. And this concept car was built by taking the basis of the Ferrari 550 Maranello. And still using the same engine, a naturally aspirated V12 engine with capacity of 5.5-liter and capable of spewing power up to 478 horsepower (362 kilowatts) at 7,000 rpm and peak torque of 419 pound-feet (568 Newton-meters) available from 5,000 rpm. 

All the power is then channeled to the rear wheels through the six-speed manual transmission system and controlled by a gated shifter which immediately reminds us of the Ferrari Testarossa.

Yes, with the same drivetrain as the 550 Maranello, the Rossa concept is almost as fast as the donor car, which is capable of reaching a top speed of about 186 mph (300 kph / 298 km), down by 13 mph (21 kph / 21 km). But unfortunately the prancing horse logoed auto manufacturer did not reveal details about the car acceleration performance from 0 to 62 mph (0-100 kph), but likely that this concept has a slower acceleration performance than 550 Maranello which takes around 4.4 seconds.

And this Rossa concept car was first introduced to the public at the Paris Motor Show 2000. Because Rossa is only a concept car and is not intended for mass production, and so the Kode57 spiritual successor cars is planned to be assembled in five examples, and the first model has been sold to the famous American boxer Floyd Mayweather at a pretty fantastic price of $ 2.5 million (Rp.33,087 billion).
Maybe if we now look at for a moment the Rossa, then maybe what comes to mind is the Monza SP2 speedster, a special car similar in philosophy with Pininfarina’s Rossa set to go into limited production. Where along with the Monza SP1, both are part of the new Icona Series, so you can rest assured there are going to be more prancing horses that’ll look back at the company’s illustrious past. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | MOTOR1 | SUPERCAR.NET]
