The Ferrari Getto (‘Jet’ in Italian) takes inspiration from some legendary Ferraris of the past such as the P4, 288 GTO, 250 GTO and F40.
The design aims at underlining the technological values and the history of the brand, as well as enhancing the intensity of the driving experience.
To do this, inspired by simulators, Christophe created a cockpit which is suspended from a frame that runs across the vehicle and over the roof. The movement of the cockpit, driven by hydraulic jacks, enhances to the sensations caused by the vehicle acceleration.
The exposed carbon fiber of the structure and cockpit contrast with the red body color and creates a racing-like look.
After the first conceptual design phase, the final sketches were turned into a detailed 3D model, developed in team with digital modeler Maxime Dewailly.
