Evolving the timeless body lines of an iconic supercar
With air passing through the front grille and exiting upwards from the bonnet, there is significantly improved vertical load.
Taking the principle of Negative Lift from the F355 to new extremes. Air is fed through the lower intake at the front of the car where the flat under-body increases aero efficiency.
Using racing knowledge, the aerodynamic efficiency of the car is upgraded and the brakes are cooled with an increase in airflow.
The side vents are styled to pay homage to the F355. They also allow increased airflow to the engine cooling systems, helping to improve performance.
The subtly larger rear spoiler increases downforce at the rear of the car and works in unison with the increased vertical load at the front of the vehicle to spread aerodynamic loads evenly on the two axles.
Form and Function
The Evoluto Primo has been created by making ‘form’ and ‘function’ work in complete harmony. An art which is lost in modern supercars where function controls form or vise-versa. Our approach is evident in the exterior of the car where the elegant form of a F355 has been subtly enhanced with more purposeful arches. Functional elements are incorporated with aerodynamic elements such as the downforce enhancing front splitter and rear diffuser.
We could not create a stunning engine and equally impressive engine bay and then hide is behind a regular rear engine cover. It was clear we would need to thoughtfully create a viewing window in the bonnet to allow users to see the mechanical mastery present.
Fenders and Axles
Giving the car the same front and rear tracks as the Ferrari 458 Speciale was imperative to achieve our performance goals. Only then could we unlock the F355 chassis, reducing the inherent understeer that arises from a narrower front track. Making the car 17.7cm (7inches) wider at the front and 5.4cm (2 inches) wider at the rear is not easy, mechanical elements had to be considered carefully, whilst maintaining the correct ‘factory’ design language
