28.10.2005 The Ferrari 'New Concepts of the Myth' are now a reality, the 20 best projects have been chosen, and they will be exhibited at the Galleria Ferrari starting from today

The new Ferrari's concepts of the myth are now a reality. The selection of the 20 best nominees for the Ferrari of the future, created by automotive design students of four of the most prestigious schools worldwide (Center for Creative Studies of Detroit, Coventry School of Art and Design, European Institute of Design of Turin and Tokyo Communication Arts), will be exhibited at the Galleria Ferrari in Maranello, starting from today, Friday, October 28th.

The contest, organized in partnership with Pininfarina and with the support of Alcoa - the company that produces aluminium spaceframes for Ferrari - has seen at work, in the last months, the most talented of each college. The students have been challenging themselves in the production of scale 1:4 Ferrari models, innovative and fresh in style and functionality as well as in external and internal volumes, proposing stimulating alternatives to the internationally acclaimed shapes of the current and previous mid-engined eight cylinder cars and the front-engined twelve cylinder cars.
