Ferrari concept set for auction

Published 23 August 2017

A one-off concept Ferrari will be sold in September. The 1989 Ferrari 328 Conciso Concept Car will go under the hammer on 10 September at Bonhams Chantilly sale.

Made in 1993, it is based on a 1989 Ferrari 328 GTS. The Consico (meaning to the point in Italian) is the work of the Bernd Michalak Design Studio in Germany.

Crafted in lightweight aluminium, the open-top car aims to evoke memories of two-seater Grand Prix racers.

Such 'luxuries' as doors, a roof and a rollbar are all deleted in a bid to create an athletic and lean thoroughbred track car.

To get in, you need to hop in over the sides and don custom made crash helmets which are stored in fitted compartments on each side of the car.

It all makes for a car that's 30 per cent lighter, allowing for a 0-100km/h dash in five seconds before hitting a top speed of 278km/h (173mph).

After its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1993, the Conciso became a rare sight and was kept as a display piece in a former owner’s sitting room for many years.

The Conciso was recently included in the Ferrari 70th Anniversary celebrations at the Brussels Autoworld Museum.
