Having made a name for themselves with a Tesla Model S fighter, the London-based studio Niels van Roij Design returns with a new and more attractive project: a "new" Ferrari Breadvan that characterizes the cut-back principle of its famous elders.
As a reminder, the original Breadvan was created in 1962 on the basis of a 1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB. It was designed by Giotto Bizzarrini and Carlo Chiti, figures to whom we also largely presented the 250 GTO "officially". The two men found there after their expulsion from Ferrari a new challenge, caused by the palace revolution that shook the Italian manufacturer in 1961. Her Breadvan, designed for the team of Giovanni Volpi, started the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1962. She has been more than honorable on the track, dominating even the 250 GTO even more modern, before finally finishing fourth Race hour was stopped by a breakage of the drive shaft.
So this iconic car will pay tribute to Niels Van Roij design. The studio decided to realize this project on a Ferrari 550 Maranello base, a model that, like the 250 GT, is equipped with a V12 at the front and a manual transmission. The final drawing is obviously not completely fixed, the skits do not always show the same car. In any case, Niels Van Roij Design makes sure that all body parts are changed, but the final result is 550 Maranello. The Breadvan Tribute must be presented by the end of this summer.
