Eye candy comes well suited when presented in the form of automobile design goodness. Ferrari CascoRosso is an independent design concept by Macedonian designer Dejan Hristov. The name itself is Italian for “red helmet” while the design is homage to the Ferrari 250 GTO, which will celebrate 50 years of its existence in 2014. While the Ferrari 250 GTO obviously influences the concept, the designer also envisions it as a successor to the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta, allowing the concept to fuse the past, present and future.
Power comes from an engine placed up front, while batteries placed behind the cabin make the car a hybrid and help with better distribution of weight. The concept features scissor doors that partially enter the body of the car while opening to take minimal space.
CascoRosso concept does away with side and rear view mirrors, even the rear window for use of cameras that are placed within the body of the car itself and project images to a screen allowing the driver easier information and better aerodynamics for the car. Front headlamps on the concept remain hidden behind shutters and are automatically done away with once the lights are switched on.
