Dot awards for the 812 Superfast and FXX K EVO

Ferrari  has  received  the  Red  Dot:  Best  of the Best  award for  the ground-breaking design  of the Portofino, Ferrari’s most recent V8-engined GT car. This is the consecutive fourth year that the  Prancing Horse  receives this prestigious honour for one of its new models.


The Ferrari Portofino

The Ferrari Portofino is an elegant and versatile convertible which features a retractable hard top together with  class-leading performance and luggage space. Its styling  impressed the international  judging  panel which stated : “Embodying an impressive  evolutionary advancement, the  Ferrari Portofino fascinates with  an  exciting  design language.  It comes across as  a  fascinating sculptural statement. The  integration of  the   retractable hardtop presents  an optimal  solution. The  haunting elegance is further  underscored  by  the uncompromising quality in material and  workmanship . The  Ferrari Portofino is the  perfect embodiment of novel  approaches that point to the  future.”

During the Gala ceremony on the  9th of July at the Aalto Theater in Essen, Germany, the jury of international designers also assigned two Red Dot awards for outstanding design quality to Ferrari for the 812 Superfast and the FXX-K Evo.

The 812 Superfast

The  awards are testimony to the  unmistakable design  and  ground-breaking technology that are  at the  basis of Ferrari’s  production. The 812 Superfast redefined the formal language of front-engined V12  Ferraris without altering either the  exterior dimensions or interior space. With a  distinct fastback sleekness to  its silhouette, sharply slanted crease lines and impressively muscular wheel arches imbue the 812 Superfast with  the  power and  aggression warranted by its imposing 6.5-litre V12.


The  FXX-K Evo

The  FXX-K Evo marks  a significant evolution of the XX programme launched in 2005 with cars  developed specifically to  play an active  role in this exclusive  research  and  development programme. The  FXX-K Evo features an evolved aero  package developed by Ferrari’s engineers in synergy with the Ferrari Styling Centre’s designers, to push  to the very limit the performance of  a model  that already represents the state-of-the-art in terms  of track-only super cars.
