    [RENDER] Ferrari 458 Speciale Redesign

    New 458 Special finally arrived & it looks great! Few things bothered me so much that I`ve decided to take few actions to make it more appealing :) Some of you know that I am big fan of small changes that makes a lot of difference, so this render follows same philosophy! Take a look and comment if you like.
     
    Actions list:
    - Enlarged front intakes
    - Adjusted central element above cavallino to accommodate two white stripes
    - Deleted blue color, and white stripes above Ferrari badge
    - Roof and mirrors painted in black
    - Mirror holders in aluminum 
     
    Render:

    Subtle. Nice!


    Re: [RENDER] Ferrari 458 Speciale Redesign

    I like the idea that the stripe seems to disappear behind the upper part of the front, nevertheless I still don't like the front of the Speciale (and neither the rear BTW).

    I tried something with my limited PS-skills:

    sample1.jpg

    The stripe disappears also behind the front bumper and I moved the yellow Ferrari logo up where it belongs.

    But it's still far from being perfect. I would like to see the strange cream white area around the lower horse to be filled with the mesh from the big air inlets of the bumper and not so sure about the gap in the bumper above the horse. Perhaps the bumper should be solid here, more like the bumper of the Scuderia, but I neither can't do that with PS. Also I would like to see carbon mirrors like the ones from the Challenge Stradale for example. Smiley

    Some more real life pics of the car down below:

    I think the back end looks more cohesive if the section above the exhausts were painted satin black as it hidesthat large flat panel which does not flow with the curves of the 458 design IMHO.

    Here is a photoshop of the press photo that someone did on another forum plus a quick P'shop on a real life shot I did.

    Not possible. The white flaps are for the active aero and open up above a certain speed.

    1) Sure it's possible to make it look better, just paint this white area black. Smiley

    2) After all they've told us about the fantastic moving moustache aero winglets of the 458, I really doubt their active aero fairytales, now that the Speciale doesn't have them.

    Re: [RENDER] Ferrari 458 Speciale Redesign

    Very Nice Milano !! clean precise work as always. I think it looks better than the original. But still I'm not a big fan of the overall redisign of the Speciale, theres just something off about the whole thing.

    Re: [RENDER] Ferrari 458 Speciale Redesign

    Your trust in Ferrari is unbelievable and you haven't even driven/owned one. Ferrari's aerodynamics claims for their street cars were never confirmed by independent sources, on the contrary. Like Rossi pointed them out quite well...fairytales. No, I am not trying to bash Ferrari or crush your Ferrari...crush. smiley

    Re: [RENDER] Ferrari 458 Speciale Redesign

    If I remember correctly the 458 Supertest , the aerodynamic data were indeed nothing spectacular, which shows that their alleged aerodynamic features are at least partly mere marketing tricks.


    Re: [RENDER] Ferrari 458 Speciale Redesign

    since you are talking about redesign, what's going on with the u-shaped piece in front of the passengers legs?! which is its use? this one should be redesined too, i think...
