Good or bad, everybody's got an opinion on the styling of contemporary Ferrari offerings – a fact that could go a long way toward explaining why everybody and their cousin wants to have a go at designing the Italian stallions themselves. The latest to join the fold is Paolo Roso, an apparently aspiring automotive designer. His project? The Dino Roso, a project that aims to reinterpret the classic 1967 Dino 246 GT in a radically different form.
While we have to admit we're not big fans of the front end (and we have to wonder how the driver is supposed to see around those enormous pillars – rollover protection isn't an issue in fantasy) – there are certain attractive elements to the design. If you care to see for yourself, it's on display through October in 1:10 scale model form at the "Sognando l'automobile" (Dreaming the Automobile) exhibit at the Museo dell'Automobile Bonfanti-Vimar in northern Italy.
