Ferrari CascoRosso Concept Is A Modern-Day Testarossa

Design / Comments

It's cooler than Hot Wheels.

Conjuring up crazy car concepts used to be the reserve of well-funded motoring design departments, but with the proliferation of design software in recent years, anyone with a computer and some time on their hands can become a capable designer. Case in point is this crazy creation you see before you. Named the "Ferrari CascoRosso Concept", this wild machine was designed by Dejan Hristov and takes inspiration from the classic Testarossa. Interestingly enough, this concept car's name translates to 'Red Helmet', a nod to the Testarossa, which translates to 'Red Head'. It might not be an F8 Tributo, but we've seen much worse come out of the Italian manufacturer's actual design studio.

The Ferrari CascoRosso Concept was crafted entirely on Photoshop and looks more like a plausible Hot Wheels design than a serious concept from Ferrari, but that might just be why it's so exciting. Judging by its proportions, and the fact that there's a gaping hole in the hood, we'd say that this is a front-engined car, but who knows what the designer has envisioned, perhaps a combination of hydrogen and electric power? The front end sports a grille turned into a sinister grin, and one of the coolest features of this design has to be the raised fender wings.

The side profile continues to show off an angular and flared design language, and the lack of any sort of door hinge system leads us to believe that this car could have a set of gullwings. The arches are filled with a set of massive ten-spoke wheels that hide some huge drilled rotors, and the roof of the car channels air into a shallow intake. At the back, quad tailpipes return us to the idea that there could be a gas-fed powerplant under the hood, but the main focus point has to be the individual spoilers arising from the body of the car. This isn't your typical Ferrari concept, but who cares, it looks awesome.
