Design) Ferrari Aurea arose from a graduation thesis with
the support of Ferrari engineers. The Aurea Project was born
from the desire to place the F1 DNA on a normal car. With the
teamwork of Ferrari's Product Engineers, the project saw a good deal
of modification to become a sports car heir to the 360 Modena.
One of the major
requests was to “dress” the engine-frame of the 360 Modena. The
light changes made to the frame have been verified by a special
calculating program (Straus) and compared with the original one. The
development has been cured by three Ferrari’s engineers:
• Amedeo Visconti: coordinating and homologation rules supervisor;
• Luca Caldirola: external co-examiner who with engineer Stefano
Carmassi (responsible for Enzo’s fluid dynamic) resolved the
The formal and stylistic
evolution went through hand rendering to study models to computer
graphics models (Rhinoceros and 3d Studio Max).
This has been, simply,
the way of our project.
