No, this is not a Sylvester Stallone-endorsed edition either. Stallone is actually the Italian word for stallion, a proper name, come to think of it, for one of the Prancing Horse’s models, albeit one that only lives in the digital world (for now).
The Ferrari Stallone is the work of South Africa-based designer Murray Sharp. His portfolio encompasses a couple of other cool car design projects, but we’ll focus on the Ferrari Stallone for now. Unlike other designers, Murray took the time to thoroughly explain why he concocted the design study and most importantly, how he did it and what pointers he had in mind. For example, he wanted to melt together the sculpted beauty of a 250 GTO with the race rawness of the mighty F40.
We’re even spoiled with dimensions for this dreamworld hypercar, which is supposed to be 4,530 mm long, 2,150 mm wide, and 790 mm tall, with a wheelbase of 2,650 mm. For the sake of the argument, the F40 flaunted a wheelbase of 2,450 mm and a total length of 4,358 mm. It also packed a vicious V-8 good for 478 horsepower and 577 Newton-meters of torque (425 pound-feet of twist).
There’s one big problem, though, with this whole design study. In fact, it’s not the concept, but us. We can’t think of a way to get Ferrari’s attention before falling on our knees to beg for a production model that looks like Murray’s masterpiece.
