Dino Rosa design study

The Dino Rosa is a design study of a compact sportscar inspired by the 1967 Dino 246 GT. Designed by Paolo Rosa, it is on display as a 1:10 scale model at the "Dreaming the Automobile" Exhibition hosted by the Museo dell’Automobile Bonfanti-Vimar in the Veneto region, Italy.


Dino Rosa DetailThe "Sognando l’automobile" ("Dreaming the automobile") exhibition is dedicated to pedal cars, old toys, collectible scale models.

It is hosted by the Museo dell’Automobile Bonfanti-Vimar, located in Romano d’Ezzelino (VI), in the Veneto Nothern Italian region.

The exhibition, which will be open until next 4 October 2009, features the 1:10 scale model of the Dino Rosa, a compact mid-engined granturismo inspired by the 1967 Dino 246 GT.

Created by Paolo Rosa, the project was developed in a number of subsequent steps: from the approach definition, to the delineation of the feature lines and main volumes, the CAS and CAD 3d modeling, ergonomic study, preliminary aerodynamic study and feasibility study for the bodywork components.

The goal was to reinterpret the original spirit of a classic sportscar from the past, rather than presenting a futuristic car or a classic shape adapted to the modern trends.

"The evolution of the style took into consideration a dualistic interpretation: observer/designer; perceptive/geometric; from the outside/from the inside."
