London-based design studio Forge Design has unveiled a restomod inspired by the Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta SWB. The body will be made of composite materials and a modified V12 engine will be placed under the hood. Photos of the model were posted on the company’s Instagram page.

Not every car enthusiast can afford the original Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta SWB. This is an incredibly rare classic worth millions of dollars.

The designers presented their vision of a classic sports car called the Competizione Ventidue. In addition to the original Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta SWB, they drew inspiration from Miles Davis’ “Kind of Blue” album and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, designed by architect Frank Lloyd Wright.

While the model is presented as a concept. Still, the designers have detailed what features their projects will take.

The bodywork is based on a racing version of the Ferrari 250 GT SWB “SEFAC Hot Rod”, which won its class at the 1961 24 Hours of Le Mans. The body of the car is made of incredibly thin aluminum panels with a thickness of 1.1 mm. In Competizione Ventidue, the body will be made of composite materials.

A distinctive feature of the design project are wide arches of fenders and modern lighting technology. The rear window will be made of polycarbonate to reduce weight.

The chassis will be made of aluminum and carbon fiber, with fully independent suspension and AP Racing brakes. The central locking Ferrari Campagnolo-style wheels will be made of magnesium alloy.

The Competizione Ventidue will be powered by a modified V12 engine with “indirect hydrogen injection”. This will eliminate harmful carbon emissions. The weight of the engine will be reduced to 165 kg.
