JMV’s 458 Italia GT Concept

23 September 2010 3 Comments

John Mark Vicente aka JMVDesign have just rendered his version of a Ferrari 458 Italia GT.

Here’s a quote from John:

I wasn’t really fond of the initial design of the Ferrari 458 Italia when it was first revealed. I thought I’d give it a chance and create a much more aggressive aerodynamics kit without compromising the initial design.

Once you study and work with the current design of 458 Italia design, you’ll learn to appreciate how gorgeous the bodywork is.

In the end, despite numerous sketches and research, the final render started to look a little Lamborghiniesque without even referring to actual current Lamborghini models but I still continued the design anyways.

The 3D rendering below features a new redesigned front bumper, side skirts, rear bumper with a much more aggressive diffuser and a rear wing to finish it off.

JMV’s 458 Italia GT Concept was modeled in Softimage XSI/3ds Max and rendered in Vray.

Few more..

Some areas does reminds me a little bit of Lamborghini designs but altered enough to be unique. My favorite part is the rear bumper. Great job John!

If you missed my other post of John’s work, here’s the link to his Bugatti Renaissance GT rendering.

    The front fascia and side skirts remind me entirely too much of the later Gallardo incarnations.

    Love it!! Awesome.

    The front, with the two large angular intakes, reminds me of the 430 Scuderia. Here they are perhaps a little too big and go a bit to far up the front. Rear looks amazing.
