LaFerrari Rendering: You Could Swear This Is the Real Deal

While Ferrari is currently working on an open-top incarnation of the LaFerrari, the digital world isn't exactly on snooze, waiting for Maranello to complete its freshest task.

Instead, the internet keeps hitting us with awesome Prancing Horse halo car-related renderings that puzzle the mind and we're here to give you one of the best examples of that.

We're talking about the rendering above. Yes, we said rendering - while you could bet this is an actual picture of the 950 hp Ferrari, we're dealing with a three-dimensional model instead.

This is the work of digital artist Jack Darton and, for those of you who are wondering how such a 1 and 0 wonder comes to life, the pixel master has offered a brief explanation on his DeviantArt page.

"I rendered out a low quality free 3D model of the base car, but the majority has been brushed over the top by hand," Jack said.

Of course, when it comes to such affairs, one must also talk about the software used to achieve the eye-catching goal. As the artist explains, the rendering came to life via Blender, Cycles, Substance Painter 2, ZBrush 4R7, and Photoshop CS6.

However, the real world (outside the Maranello factory gates) is always trying to one-up the digital realm. For instance, it might seem like the LaF you see above is sitting indoors. Well, here's a LaFerrari enjoying itself in the middle of its owner's living room - the man decided to take better care of his gas-electric Ferrari after he crashed it and probably got carried away.

Then again, we'd probably keep our HHHT (Holy Hybrid Hypercar Trinity) machine inside the house too, so we can't blame the guy.

P.S.: Those of you who aren't up to speed with the latest details on the open-air LaFerrari topic should check out this story.
