In 2012, before Ferrari had pulled the veil from the LaFerrari, Australian graphic designer David Williams rendered what he thought the Italian hypercar would look like. His rendering was actually very well done and he wasn’t too far off the mark, but once the real LaFerrari had been revealed, his design no longer served a purpose.
That’s what he thought, at least. Now, the imaginatively named company ‘Exotic Rides’ has purchased the design from Williams with the intention of building it. They haven’t provided too much information on the project, but according to Autoevolution, it will be powered by a 7.0-liter LS7 crate motor producing over 700 horsepower via forced induction.
There are a couple of problems we see with this. First, this is just one of many rendered supercars which surface each year claiming to be the next big thing and packing GM LS power under the hood. Because of that, we’re going to label this one vaporware until we see it on the road or at least on an auto show floor. The other problem is it looks dangerously close to the LaFerrari, and the guys from Maranello aren’t known for the their sense of humor.
So if Exotic Rides can muster up enough money to actually put one of these on the road and dodge Ferrari’s potential legal hammer fist, we may have a another GM-powered supercar on our hands. We wouldn’t bet on it, though.
