Stare at this entirely unofficial modern-day Ferrari F40 render

Designer cooks up a personal vision of what today’s F40 might look like

  • This isn’t real, nor is it official. But it is quite something: the work of designer Samir Sadikhov, motivated by a desire to cook up a tribute to one of the world’s most iconic supercars. The Ferrari F40.

    “For car designers, the F40 is a design icon,” he said. He therefore spent a year paying tribute to its ‘minimalist’ lines and motorsport aesthetic. An entire year on an unofficial project. Talk about passione.

    He makes a note that he wanted a resemblance rather than a straight copy. Hence the wheel arches, large rear spoiler, and key aero components dotted around the surface and of course, quad tail lights.

    Have a flick through the gallery and let us know what you make of this entirely fictional, unofficial render.

  • That spoiler dominates the rear surfacing, said to be 'generous'. Maybe not the wheel arch clearance.

  • "The vehicle's tail is broad and muscular in design," Samir said. Yup, box ticked.

  • 'Yes Mr Wayne, it does come in black.'

  • Silhouette is unmistakable, there. 

  • Shades of LaFerrari from this angle, which is no bad thing.

  • The F40's motorsport credentials are carried over on the inside of this render - simple, modern.

  • Maybe bring your own cushion, though.

  • Samir even went to the effort of knocking up a monocoque render. So there's his F40 tribute, naked.
