Flavio Manzoni on the design secrets of the Ferrari LaFerrari [w/Video]

Wed, 31 Jul 2013

Flavio Manzoni has explained the secrets behind the design of the LaFerrari hypercar in an interview with Autocar's Steve Sutcliffe.

Ferrari's design chief, speaking at the Ferrari Museum in Maranello, talks of how the LaFerrari was designed to manifest the future of Ferrari and mark a milestone in the design process.

Presentations of four 1:1 scale models adorn the walls of the room kept exclusively for project LaFerrari, although there were five initial presentations – three from Ferrari and two from Pininfarina.

Interestingly, Manzoni says he is holding the missing model because he found it so beautiful and will be keeping it secret.

"It's very different," he explains, "another concept but still very interesting so that's why we're thinking about maybe a one-off car."

He also discusses the design input Ferrari's president, Luca di Montezemolo, had on the LaFerrari project and a little on what we can expect to see from Ferrari's future lineup design-wise.
