This Ferrari F40 Looks Like the Mid-Engined Corvette, Comes with a V12

Ladies and gentlemen drivers, there's one thing I need to stress before moving forward with this tale - the images that brought us here are mere renderings. So there's no reason for purists to fret about this visual adventure portraying a Ferrari F40 that has long left its factory state behind.

Sure, you can still recognize the overall shape of the iconic Maranello halo car. However, there are about a ton of bits and pieces that set this Italian exotic apart from the kind you'd find in a collector's garage.

For one thing, the F40 has lost its iconic twin-turbo V8, whose extreme power band shaped the spicy character of the Fezza. Instead, the middle section of the machine is now occupied by a naturally aspirated V12, with its individual throttle bodies standing out from a distance.

Then there's all the aero work done to the car - I'm not even sure which of its ends has went through a more complex transformation. I'll probably go with the posterior, which is the one that made me think of the upcoming mid-engined Corvette.

The renderings we have here come from Yasid Oozear, a digital artist who adores giving automotive icons the kind of shape that sets the world wide web on fire.

In fact, here's what the pixel master had to say about his work: "My F40 on some early stages of Mutation [can you imagine the rest of the journey, ladies and gentlemen drivers?]. Does not make me feel uncomfortable at all. Nuh-uh,"

And while we're talking Prancing Horse matters that can easily split opinions, here's another rendering of such a Ferrari. albeit one that sits much closer to the real world - this image portrays the upcoming Ferrari SUV, a high-riding creature that's expected to land in 2022 at the latest.
