With the Frankfurt Motor Show approaching, Ferrari, Pagini, BMW, Porsche, Lamborghini and Mercedes have all decided to show supercar concepts. The car must have the design traits of the company and look like a supercar should for this company.<br>Your task is to design one of these iconic cars.<p><B>Ferrari Enzo</B><br><IMG SRC="http://images.google.ie/images?q=tbn:sY61LlCl-AgJ:motor.tuportada.com/img/wp/ferrari-enzo-13.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><B>Mercedes SLR</B><br><IMG SRC="http://images.google.ie/images?q=tbn:DgNxSufzAIMJ:vw.cz/FOTO1/2/pix/MB%2520McLaren%2520SLR%2520doors%2520side.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><B>Lamborghini Murcielago</B><br><IMG SRC="http://images.google.ie/images?q=tbn:F_ZMzUHNbuUJ:www.aoqz76.dsl.pipex.com/Web%2520Page%2520Components/Wallpaper/Cars/Murcielago.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><B>Pagini Zonda</B><br><IMG SRC="http://images.google.ie/images?q=tbn:W9HLGH-iMxQJ:www.wallpaper.net.au/wallpaper/automotive/Pagini%2520Zonda%2520S%25207.3%2520-%2520800x600.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><B>BMW M1</B><br><IMG SRC="http://images.google.ie/images?q=tbn:wLZRQxlCQzQJ:www.tuningpt.com/galeria/bmw/m1/1976_bmw_m1-1.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><br><U><I><B>Contets will close on Tuesday the 9th of August</B></I></U><p>Good Luck!

I get nervous about designing all out supercars... this is a toughy. Now, can this be a new model, or does it have to be one of the above examples?

Lookin' good, guys. This is one of those contest topics that will bring out the best, I'm sure.<p>1pablo: SWEET sketch; it's beautifully colored and drawn, and the nose is, of course, a terrific adaptation of the current MBZ theme. It looks like a street-legal homologation of a Le Mans racer. The back doesn't evoke Mercedes, in my opinion, but overall the design works well.<p>testarossa7: terrific render, as usual. The proportions are extreme--very supercar--but recall Audi or Lambo more than Mercedes. Also the perspective seems off on the far side mirror. Nevertheless, beautiful.<p>Hussein: Photorealistic, as usual. I don't know how you do it. And it's all Benz.. a terrific evolution (I especially love your trademark lights and that wicked side vent). I've used a similar A-pillar treatment on a couple of my own sketches (see Automotive Design forum). I love it.

1Pablo, your sketch is nice, but your car looks like it came from the sixties. not that its a bad thing. <p>Testarrosa, yours reminds me of a Toyota for some reason.<p>Hussein Design, I like yours the best. but it doesnt look too much like a supercar. more like something a CLK would like like. To me. but its also agressive. nice job. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/driver.gif" BORDER="0">

I don't know. I think its a nice idea, but it looks pretty much out of perspective and proportions could be better too. I like the colouring, but to be honest it's not the best sketch I've seen.

The new Ferrari TestaRossa. Designwise it pays homage to many of its predecessors, not the least of which being the original 250 TR. The car's most striking feature (one which truly showcases its remarkable heritage) is the exposed front-mounted V12. The visibility of this amazing motor erases any doubts as to the car's pedigree and performance capability. Topped in stunning <I>rosso</I>, the motor can also be covered by a panel (constructed of the owner's choice of plexiglass or carbon fiber) for aerodynamic reasons or in inclement weather. Other design cues recall a variety of recent Ferraris - the sharp crease down the side pays homage to the awesome 360, while the round inset tail lamps reference the Enzo and 612 models, and the dual matte-black finished intakes recall the new F430. Like the engine cover, the roof is available in glass or carbon fiber (painted or no), and a barchetta model with lift off roof panels will also be available. <p><IMG SRC="http://img295.imageshack.us/img295/3316/testarossa6jc.jpg" BORDER="0">

okay here goes. i'm quite excited about this entry, because it's not only my first photoshopped entry ever but also my first photoshopped work ever. period. so admist learning all the tools and poring through hussein's tutorial ad nauseum, i think i created something respectable. and, as first attempts go, i'd really love as much criticism as possible. thanks :)<p>many of you may remember my alfa romeo superamerica supercar of yore. i can't find it on the forum for some reason but a lot of you said that the front looked like the subaru B6 tribeca which was a clear signal that the front had to change. i trashed the project but brought it back for this contest. i changed the front; it started life as a transplant off of an alfa 159 and slowly transformed into a sharper, meaner front, eschewing the 159's exposed light clusters for two cat-eye headlamp units. <p>the alfa sports intensely voluptuous curves, topped by two finitely detailed rearview mirrors. the hood curves into the windshield, which flows all the way to the back, revealing the mid-mounted engine. a huge side vent not only cools the rear brakes but lets air pressure from the front wheels out.<p><IMG SRC="http://www.uploadhut.com/upload/255289.jpg??"

it looks spectacular, especially considering it's your first photoshop ever. of course it isn't perfect; it looks a little messy around the lower air intakes and the wheels, but that's just nitpicking. awesome job. and by the way, what photoshop program did you use? i've been thinking about getting photoshop, and i think i'll need to if i want to design cars for a living (which i hope and plan to do) but i can't get a really expensive one.<p>also, i may do an entry tonight, but i'm still working on 4 new cars for my made up brands (i take forever on those, and you'll see why when i post them in the designs section) so i may not be able to.
