click above for more high-res images of the Ferrar F250 Concept

Ferrari is very reluctant to admit it's working on an "entry-level" model that is rumored to be a successor to the Dino, so those of us who can't wait have to take matters into our own hands. Meet the Ferrari F250 Concept designed by Idries Omar, who says the low slung, mid-engine supercar you see before you was originally intended to be his take on a new Dino. But let's face it, the name "Dino" makes most people think of The Flintstones, so Omar instead crowned his creation the F250. Sure, it doesn't share much in common with the venerable 250 GTO after which it's named, but if we're already imagining Ferraris that don't exist, we should be able to name them whatever we want. Less artistic license was taken for the 250 GTO Concept's engine, which Omar imagines to be a 2.5L V6 that runs on biofuel. This part of his thought experiment is not as far off as you'd think. Ferrari just debuted the F430 Spider Bio Fuel in Detroit this week that runs on E85 ethanol.

      Why is it the worst student designers seem to get the most press? I won't even comment on this design it's so bad....I would have stopped at the first sketch, thrown it in the trash and hoped that nobody saw it.

      I think it looks sick. Looks like a hybrid between the 355/testarossa/430 in the front and a Enzo/500 rear hybrid.

      It doesn't look angry or sad, too many cars now a day's do that, and it doesn't have the ugly nostrils of the 430.

      Rear is not as awesome as the front but I dig it.

        And what does this have to do with reality? Does Idries Omar work for Pininfarina?

      that should be the front of the 2012 NSX but honda is being dum and going front engine awd

        Funny you mention that; when I saw this my first thought was "NSX JGTC GT500". Then I saw the back. Yeesh. Overall, the concept lacks the polish and subtlety Ferrari designs have.

      It seems as if the creators of the MC12 and 'egg slept together.

      it looks faster than the 360 does, which might be a mistake...

      Guys, ferrari is dead.

      What an ugly POS. If Ferrari builds this, they will officially be insane.

      I like it, really like it... yet the back could get some work to give the car a more aggressive look.

      I'm kind of a Ferrari fan..., it may not become a real Ferrari, but that design has more than enough to be an awesome supercar.

      That makes me sad.

      I don't think of the Flintstones when I hear "Dino." What kind of self-respecting car enthusiast would?
