The Ferrari Aliante Barchetta is a personal project by Spanish designer Daniel Soriano, who pays homage to pay homage to the past generation of sportscars.


The author of the project is Daniel Soriano, currently working as Concept Surface Designer at Volvo. He explains “Since most modern cars nowadays are souless machines with more similarities to an electrodomestic than to an actual car, I wanted to create an homage to the old school generations of super cars.

“Today seems like it is all about figures: to a true petrolhead things that make a car great can not be measured or quantified, so I wanted to make something pure, light and simple.”

The concept is based on the Ferrari Aliante project done by Daniel Soriano himself, Arun Kumar and Magnus Grettve at IED in 2011 and presented at the Ferrari World Design Contest.

After seven years Daniel decided to update it as a personal challenge to check his evolution and growth as a designer, after professional experiences at Lamborghini, Volvo Cars and Polestar among the others. As a result he decided to redesign and remodel the car from scratch, dubbing it Ferrari Aliante Barchetta.

The concept is powered by a compact, high revving naturally aspirated flat 12 with independent throttle bodies, manual gearbox and has no electronic driving aids.

The structure is a carbon fiber monocoque with integrated seats. The body integrates a number of some active aerodynamic elements including  big scoops, spoiler and diffuser and there are no doors, no windows and no roof. “Modern hipsters will hate it.” comments Daniel.
