The Ferrari Aliante Is The Ultimate Italian Barchetta

There’s no denying that Ferrari builds some very attractive cars but if you ask yours truly, no modern Ferrari looks anywhere near as beautiful as the Aliante Barchetta designed by Daniel Soriano.

If you’re familiar with the Ferrari World Design Contest, you may recognize the Aliante as it was first designed back in 2011. However, Soriano recently went back to the drawing board and re-designed this wild Ferrari to create what you see here.

The first thing which stands out about the vehicle is the absolutely glorious exterior. At the front, there are a pair of triangular-shaped headlights and a black front splitter and air intakes. The nose is very low and bulging front wheel arches extend out of the bodywork. Not only do the wheel arches look amazing but the driver would have a clear view of where the top of each wheel is, allowing them to perfectly place the car when cornering.

Soriano’s design consists of a unique windshield with a particularly aggressive shape. Inside, there is a retro-inspired steering wheel as well as a series of classic gauges. You will also notice a six-speed gated manual shifter (wishful thinking in this day and age) and a pair of bucket seats.

The rear of the stunning Aliante Barchetta includes two round taillights, a pair of tailpipes, and a sharp diffuser.

If we had to pick a favorite part of the design, it would have to be the glass engine cover. While engine covers of mid-engined supercars are typically flat or extend down with the roofline, the Aliante’s engine features its own little glass canopy. Speaking of the engine, it is a flat-12 cylinder with independent throttle bodies.

How about making this thing a reality Ferrari?
