Design graduate Borys Dabrowski from Poland created a futuristic design concept that pays tribute to Giotto Bizzarrini, the Ferrari designer and engineer responsible for the Ferrari 250 GTO.

The Bizzarrini Veleno features aggressive supercar styling while incorporating organic surfaces inspired by nature; particularly the poison dart frog, which explains the name "Veleno" (Italian for venom).

The concept features a hydrogen fuel cell that powers an electric motor. Hydrogen is stored in a special tank made from nanotube material. Dabrowski proposes the hydrogen fuel is created from renewable sources such as algae and organic waste.

The body structure is made from CentrAL, a composite material that layers aluminum, glass fiber and graphene - the later which consists of one atom thick mesh layer of graphite. It is a very strong material.

Conventional wheels are replaced by an array of rollers which allow the car to move laterally.

Dabrowski explains, "I've always been a fan of Giotto Bizzarrini's cars, so for my Degree Show project I wanted to design a vehicle which brought together the look and feel of one of his machines with the kind of futuristic technologies I think will be commonplace in 2030."

Dabrowski's Bizzarrini Veleno design concept was created in 2011 for his final year at Coventry University where he studied Automotive and Transport Design.
