FERRARI AND POLTRONA FRAU PRESENT “COCKPIT”, THE NEW OFFICE CHAIR: PASSION FOR AUTOMOTIVE EXCELLENCE IN AN ARMCHAIR


Maranello, 7 aprile 2017 – Ferrari and Poltrona Frau present “Cockpit”, the first office chair ever designed by Ferrari Design Centre. Produced by Poltrona Frau, that has upholstered the interiors of Ferrari cars since the 80’s, it is neither a car seat nor a pure piece of furniture or design. It is a contemporary hybrid that brings together two brands, a blend of automotive know-how and the culture of living that celebrate the 70thanniversary of the Maranello carmaker. An office chair that captures the excitement, the speed of the driver’s seat, as well as the passion for racing.

The Cockpit is a place where concentration, quick reflexes and intuition join with a will to win. It is a space where the contact between the body and the seat creates dynamic sensations that help the driver to control the car as efficiently as possible. The armchair has an architectural and modular structure, and offers expansion possibilities. For the moment two versions are available: the President and the Executive. Both comprise a reclining base and seat, integrated with two different backrests. The President is the managerial model with a high backrest that is inspired by the ergonomics of competitive racing seats. The Executive model, a chair that adapts to all work contexts, has a deliberately low and narrow backrest to ensure more freedom of movement.

The design of “Cockpit" is a synthesis of automotive innovation and inspiration, the product of Ferrari’s 70 years of experience. Every element connects with the brand’s DNA, and the materials are the same as those used in Ferrari cars, like the external shell moulded from carbon or alutex. The central band on the seat takes its cue from racing seats, while the swivel device sports the same design and mechanical elements as the steering wheel.

For the leather upholstery, the Ferrari Design Centre team has chosen shades and finishes inspired by the trim of the three Tailor-Made service lines, which allow for the personalised configuration of the car: Scuderia, Classica and Inedita. Cockpit can also be customised in terms of its colours and materials.

Ferrari SP38

Maranello, May 23 2018 – The Ferrari SP38, the latest offspring from Ferrari’s One-Off programme, has been unveiled at Fiorano where, after the ceremonial handover to one of Ferrari’s most dedicated customers, the car was immediately put through its paces in a series of hot laps.
Designed by the Ferrari Design Centre on the chassis and running gear of the 488 GTB, this unique car reflects the specific vision of a client with a deep passion for racing. The result is a model that can be driven both on road and on track, while at the same time expressing all the beauty and innovation inherent in Ferrari’s road cars.
The all-new bodywork, in a newly conceived three-layer metallic red, marks a radical departure from the language aesthetic of the donor car. The twin-turbo, twin-intercooler set-up of the award-winning 488 GTB inspired the team to reference the mighty F40 as an icon from which to instruct the project’s general direction.
Compared to the 488 chassis, the visual mass of SP38 a…

Spied | C8 ME Corvette | May 16

Things are getting shaped... and that shape is gor-geous. More beautiful than any rendering before. It looks that the car has flat top racing style steering wheel, flat engine cowl, buttresses, active-aero, beefy dual brake calipers in the rear, folding hard top.
