The idea behind FERRARI “ARIA” F-PROTOTYPE was to design the Future Le Mans electric hyper-car/drone prototype from the outside in as a bridging gap between the racing design DNA of the past Ferrari’s and the airborne vision of the future with a seamless user experience switching through the skies and on ground achieved by the sustainable technologies of the near future.


It is powered by a carbon capture electric engine, which sucks in carbon dioxide to generate electricity stored in solid-state batteries sandwiched into the vehicle’s underbody section. In contrast, the drone tends to have a solid-state battery under the driver’s seat to maintain a low centre of gravity as possible to get charged electromagnetically from the underbody panel section.

Aerodynamic attachments can achieve the enthralling experience of immense speed on race tracks at will. i.e., the drone rotors on both sides of the cockpit can move along the z-axis to be used as catalysts to push the car front and send more air to the carbon capture engine through the massive inlets of the rear section. Alternatively, the drone acts as a rigid supporting mid structure for the front and rear sections.

If you are done racing, you can attach a direction tail rotor that spins along the x-axis. Take a shortcut to your everyday leisures in drone mode with a more laid-back hands-free experience from the traffic or home. And the rest of the wheels unit follows you to your location later or can be sent to your home. The whole vehicle works with an autonomous AI control unit, monitoring the active aerodynamics, steer by wire tech, and even backsliding ingress-egress.

And thanks to my inspiration for the project & mentor who guided me through this project: Marcello Raeli, Senior Car Designer, Koenigsegg Automotive.





The side view is inspired by the past Ferrari legends, the clean and straightforward P-series racing contours, and the jet aviation dynamics without losing the Ferrari design essence: passion, excitement, and glamour. The top view is given very high importance over its design through functionality like the seamless drone placement on top of the vehicle using electromagnetic locks. A critical aerodynamic edge exploration with streamlined body contours from front to the rear gives an elegant expression of sportiness. The front view has more of an aggressive nature that’s ready to strike with the fluidic surface, with the front lights designed as a mix of sporty and edginess. The back view is based on aerodynamics and engineering combined to serve the air passing through the car to the rear aero outlets that can hold or let out high-pressure air when required.
