TTAC Photochop: Ferrari F60

ttac photochop ferrari f60

Five years have passed since Ferrari introduced the Enzo. I bet that in two or three years we'll get to see (at least in posters) another prancing horse wonder produced in three hundred-something examples. I took the liberty of rendering for you my impression on the subject, keeping in mind what the F60 should be: an uncompromising supercar filled with the latest F1 technology from the Scuderia. One good thing about such a car is that it can even use technologies that are not allowed in F1, such as auto-adjusting aerodynamics. (The Enzo was the first Ferrari to use a self-adjusting rear wing.) We can assume that the F60 could feature electronically adjustable front spoilers and variable capacity air intakes to finely tune Cx vs. downforce vs. air cooling depending on needs. The design path I've chosen makes subtle references to the F40 and to the F50, adding a drop of Italian fragrance from the next decade. My excitement and enthusiasm regarding this chop are toned down by the sad thought that this car will no longer be designed under the supervision of Andrea Pininfarina. May he rest in peace!

    Looks pretty good, though like all recent Ferraris it would not make me forget the rest of the world and just admire it, which i think a Ferrari should do. The F40 is probably my all-time favorite supercar. The reason is because it's etched in my mind from playing a lot of top trumps as a kid and the F40 was faster than anything else.

    I guess I'm one of the few who liked the F50 for its technological prowess. It's an F1/prototype engine - really! How many cars on the road can list an F1 car as their direct precedent and mechanical sibling? The F40 was seriously cool, but dammit, Gran Turismo 5 has gone and spoiled the magic by showing me how much of an ill-handling, turbo-lag-of-death prone widowmaker it is. If I'm ever offered a drive in a real one, I'll decline based solely on how many times I put it into the armco in that game.

    Not bad, but yeah the Enzo was the F60. I thought the F50 was an attractive, crazy out-of-the-box design. And the Enzo was only the latter. I'd like to see an F70 that looks like your rendering.

    We got to see the Enzo in 2003, well ahead the brand’s 60th anniversary (2007). Some dared to call the new car the F60, but Ferrari officials made it clear that their latest dreamcar was a tribute to Enzo Ferrari and not an anniversary milestone. That and the spy photos of a new vehicle under development indicate that an F60 is still possible.
