Ugur Sahin Design Project F is a Ferrari 458-Based Work of Art
There's no question that a Ferrari is a very special vehicle, but not all Prancing Horses are created equal. When the Ferrari 458 was first unveiled, the motoring world loved it — but then LaFerrari debuted, and we kinda forgot about the 458. But Ugur Sahin Design's latest custom Ferrari may have us drooling over the 458 yet again. Dubbed the "Project F," this one-of-a-kind concept looks to be a completely custom-bodied supercar, reportedly based on the Ferrari 458. It even seems to take some inspiration from the LaFerrari. Consider our interest piqued. PHOTOS: See more of the 2014 Ugur Sahin Design Project F Concept
From what we can tell in these conceptual images, there is the heavy use of carbon fiber. We can see exposed CF in the front air splitter, as well as the carbon fiber wheels, and what appears to be carbon fiber covers for the disc brakes. The covers presumably would either keep dust out or focus more cool air in.

We see elements from various supercars in the Project F, including the flying buttresses from the Ferrari 599 GTB, and the side air vents similar to several current Ferraris. The curved windshield is reminiscent of a Koenigsegg or several types of closed-cockpit LeMans racers.

Very little has been divulged in terms of specs, pricing or other info. What we do know is that Ugur Sahin Design will be turning this design into a reality for an undisclosed client, and that the 458 is the most likely donor car. We’ll be watching very closely as this project takes shape.
