■ Ferrari F460 Tifosi Concept Cars

The F460 Tifosi is a proposal for a successor to the current Ferrari F430. Based on the F460 name, power for the concept would come from a 4.6 litre, mid-mounted V8. And, like the F430, the Tifosi's engine is visible through a glass rear hatch. 

The 'Tifosi' part of the name is taken from the Italian word for 'fan', and in Italy the word Tifosi is often used to describe the supporters of Scuderia Ferrari in Formula One.

The Ferrari F460 Tifosi is a concept created by Atilla Tay, a Transport Design graduate from the Art Center College of Design, Pasadena.

The Ferrari F460 Tifosi is similar in size, proportion and layout to the F430, but with perhaps a slightly more slippery profile. The exterior design of the concept is inspired by the shape of DNA, using continuous flowing lines to define the surfaces. The matt black color of the concept helps to emphasize style lines of the concept.
