I graduated from Coventry University 30 years ago this year. I have for the most part made my living as a Yacht Designer, although I have done a wide variety of projects ranging from product design, bikes and trikes, motorhomes etc. However, I have always been a bit of a car nut. However, I had not designed a proper sports/super car since I was at University. This last weekend I decided I should do something about that. So, as a celebration of 30 years and as a bit of a personal challenge, I designed this Maserati. I feel that Maserati has been somewhat in the shadow of Ferrari since both have been part of the FIAT group. Now Ferrari is going it’s own way, I think that it might be a chance to look at Maserati as a competitor not the brand that gets the hand-me-downs. I realise that this design does have elements of many supercars, including a number of Ferraris, I do not apologise about it, this is a design that I think is pretty. I hope some of you do too. It is inspired by Maseratis designed by Giorgetto Guigaro in the 1970’s, which frankly I think were some of the prettiest cars by the Marque. Would it be electric? No, though it could be, I guess. But I think this should have a mid mounted V8, perhaps a turbo/supercharged V6.
Does it have pop-up lights? Those are not legal any longer are they? Well, in this case it doesn’t, it has eyelids, they slide up. So, maintaining the look of pop-ups, but without the pedestrian collision issues.
