With car concepts constantly being released from major marques, it is unlikely for one created as a college project to raise any eyebrows—unless it is for the next generation of Ferrari with looks that are nothing short of ferocious. In 2014, Adriano Raeli did just that, and his renderings continue to go viral across the Internet. As such, Raeli thought it was due time to pull the curtain back on his Ferrari F80 Supercar.
Although it’s nothing more than a concept, the idea is certainly one worth taking a look at. The vehicle will be powered by a hybrid drive-train that pairs a KERS system with a combustion engine to produce 1,200 horsepower. While this sounds pretty awesome, the manner in which it’s handled might ruffle more than a few feathers. The Art Center College of Design graduate has ditched the iconic V12 in favour of a 900 horsepower twin-turbo V8 setup (paired with the 300 horsepower KERS system).
The vehicle’s proposed weight of 1,763 pounds means the 2-seater would sprint to 62 mph in just 2.2 seconds with a top speed of 310 miles per hour. While many of us would have liked to see this thing powered by a naturally aspirated V12 engine, it’s worth noting that the legendary Ferrari F40 was also powered by the same twin-turbocharged V8 power plant. Not to mention this thing is dropping dead gorgeous.
