The Xezri project was selected for the “purity and elegance of its design, proposed in future perspective. The shapes are reminiscent of some of the most charming Ferrari of the past.”

Samir Sadikhov received the award from Ferrari CEO Amedeo Felisa, Paolo Pininfarina and Flavio Manzoni.

IED participated in the final stage of the contest with two other projects: the 540 Pegaso by Giuseppe Ceccio, Giacomo Pierin e Matteo Politano and the Ethesian by Alessandro Nardolillo, all graduated from the three-year post-diploma course in Transportation Design – academic year 2010-2011.

The three projects were selected by Ferrari among a total of 11 proposals, developed by students as their final thesis for the course.

All the projects will be on display at the “Apriti IED – Naturally Powerful 2011” exhibition, which will take place at the school headquarters until the end of September.
