This project sought to create a Hypercar to race in the FIA WEC and a car, the 499P, that allowed different Ferrari teams to work together, developing the best possible synthesis of technical and stylistic requirements.

It defined a paradigm that would later be the starting point for the Prancing Horse’s fashion collections. Style and technology intersect in the design of the Ferrari Hypercar, as explained by Stefano Carmassi, Endurance Race Cars Programme and Technical Manager, Flavio Manzoni, Chief Design Officer, Carlo Palazzani, Head of Vehicle Rear Engine Exterior Design, Francesco Russo, Advanced Lead Designer, Silvia Cavallaro, Head of Colour & Trim, and Rocco Iannone, Lifestyle Creative Director.
