The supercar designers of tomorrow have been praised by Ferrari for their “innovative” ideas in a prestigious competition.
Ferrari challenged students from 50 international design schools to create the supercar of the future.
Judges then picked the top seven entrees for the final of the Ferrari World Design Contest with students making scaled versions of their designs.
Entrees had to preserve the “performance and elegance” of a Ferrari but also adopt technologies for the future.
And South Korea looks like it could be a hotbed for design talent with students from Seoul winning the competition.
Hongik University trumped their opposition with the incredible looking Eternita model.
Ferrari described the Eternita as “a thoroughbred hypercar brimming with new generation technologies and materials”.
Second place went to IED in Italy for its Xezri concept while The London Royal College of Arts came third with the Cavallo Bianco.
The winning Korean students – Kim Cheong Ju, Ahn Dre and Lee Sahngseok – will now be awarded an internship with Ferrari in Italy and a cash prize.
Ferrari Chairman Luca di Montezemolo said: “Nurturing the creativity of young people is a fundamental strategy in every walk of life.
