$4.5 MILLION FERRARI F12 TRS REVEALED IN SICILY

$4.5 MILLION FERRARI F12 TRS REVEALED IN SICILY

And just when I thought that Ferrari could not do anything more spectacular than what now has to offer, the Italian car maker unveiled a one-off open-top F12 Berlinetta called TRS which has been created by the company’s Special Projects division. TRS is a one-off model that will leave you absolutely speechless. It made its debut during the annual Ferrari Cavalcade driving tour, which this year took place in Sicily.

Based on the company’s equally wonderful F12 Berlinetta and built exactly to a client’s specifications, this amazing car cost its lucky owner $4.5 million , making it one of the most expensive production cars to roll off the assembly line this year. Designed and created by Flavio Manzoni and the Ferrari Style Centre, the look of the F12 TRS has been inspired by the 1957 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa.

Power comes from a 6.3-liter V-12 engine tuned to deliver 729 horsepower and 508 pound-feet of torque. This ensures 0-62 mph acceleration in just 3.1 seconds and a top speed in excess of 211 mph. The open cockpit is trimmed in Alcantara, fine leather and black matte carbon fibre. Generally, inside was adopted a minimalist look. Aerobridge that normally sits above the rear fender on the F12 Berlinetta is now gone, allowing for the open-top design of the car. The engine’s signature red cylinder heads are visible through a window in the hood.

If you are one of Ferrari’s most loyal customers and you have enough money then Ferrari can make you unique extraordinary model. This lucky guy already has his dream car. I would definitely like to have something like this in my garage.

IXION WINDOWLESS JET CONCEPT

IXION WINDOWLESS JET CONCEPT

Winner in the 2014 International Yacht & Aviation Awards in the Exterior design category

Once again, a great team and excellent design push the boundaries. The Technicon Design France team received an award for their IXION windowless jet concept. They came up with ideas on how to make your flight even more exciting.

“We quickly settled on the controversial yet interesting idea of removing the windows from the cabin and using existing or very near future technology to display the exterior environment to the inside surfaces of the cabin via external cameras,” says Gareth Davies, Design Director at Technicon’s French Studio. “Removing the windows allows for weight reduction, simplifies construction and opens up an enormous spectrum of possibilities for interior design. We wanted to couple this with amorphous solar panels which power the low voltage systems on board and thus offer a unique visual dynamic for the exterior.”

To demonstrate Technicon’s creative design, digital modelling and visualisation capabilities in the transportation design sector, the Windowless Jet proposal was first conceived for the National Business Aviation Association show.
