Ferrari’s design chief imagines the weird, beautiful spaceship of the future

Flavio Manzoni is credited with some of the most extreme designs to come out of Ferrari in recent memory — including the LaFerrari, F12berlinetta, and FXX K — but all of those pale in comparison to the latest creation to come out of his sketchbook.

In fact, it’s not a car at all: Manzoni took a break from styling some of the most beautiful vehicles on the planet to sketch his vision for a spacecraft of the future, lithe and fully chromed-out, just as you’d expect any good sci-fi spacecraft to be.

It turns out that he’s had an obsession with UFOs since childhood, and there’s no shortage of UFO inspiration here — if there’s an aircraft, shuttle, or rocket that exists today that looks anything like it, I don’t know what it is.
