Luca Serafini is an automotive designer from Modena in Northern Italy. And being from Italy’s famous ‘motor city’, which is home not just to Ferrari but also Lamborghini and Maserati, it comes as no surprise that Luca has developed a special interest in conceiving his own Prancing Horse concepts.
Luca is currently Design Director at Zanasi Ferrari Ateliér, a Maranello-based bodyshop that, as well as being an authorised Ferrari Classiche restorer, offers a bespoke styling and tuning service for Italy’s most famous power car.
With his GT concept, which was originally penned back in 2008, the intention was to design an elegant and athletic-looking coupe. The car’s body features surface forms that are more curved than taut, taking influence no doubt from the Ferrari heritage of yesteryear. For example, the front three-quarter, with its mouth-shaped grille, is reminiscent of competition Ferraris from the 1950s. The rear perspective, meanwhile, shares an affinity with more recent Ferrari models, especially the 599.
Certain aspects of the design might well see some revisions in the not-too-distant future. “Perhaps looking it now, I feel the need to make a few changes,” says Luca. However, considering the design is now five years old, the concept car’s styling has aged rather well.
