Ferrari held a competition crowdsourcing the best designs for the Ferrari of 2040 — and the results are in.
The third annual Top Design School Challenge called for the best innovative designs for the Ferrari of the future. A jury of designers, engineers, and drivers picked three stunning models, but were unanimous about what car deserved the first prize.
Here's a look at the winning cars:
Third place went to this car design, dubbed the "de Esfera," which was decided by an online ballot.
The third-place car, shown here in red, was designed by three students from Hongik University in Seoul, South Korea.
The second place prize went to this car, called the "FL," because it was the only design that focused on a futuristic design concept for a car cabin.
The FL was designed by Roman Egorov, a Russian student from the Hochschule Pforzheim in Germany.
The jury felt Egorov successfully created an unconventional interior that rethought how humans would interact with a car's infotainment system.
"He also partnered luxury, noble materials rather opting than for the typical carbon-leather combination of today, demonstrating his ability to look well beyond accepted convention," Ferrari wrote in a press release about the FL.
But the winner goes to this black beauty, "the Manifesto."
The judges unanimously decided that this design, created by six students from the ISD-Rubika at Valenciennes, France, should be the winner.
The jury was won over because the students created a concept that considered how the exterior, cabin, and running gear should look like.
"The spectacular door opening mechanism also highlights the evolution of the interior functions, using future-forward technologies," Ferrari wrote of the car in their press release.
The car's exterior was also commended because it's recognizable while incorporating unorthodox features.
