Leonardo Fioravanti, a leading freelance designer who has worked for Pininfarina, Fiat Auto and Ferrari, introduced the F100r, the roadster evolution of the F100 coupe unveiled at the 1998 Turin show.
With the F100r, the aim was to make an open car more comfortable for passengers. Thanks to an innovative multispherical windscreen, the airflow is projected to the rear of the vehicle, leaving the passengers without wind disturbance at speeds of up to 250kph. The F100r, a styling mock-up with no engine, is 4430mm long, 1910mm wide and 1070mm high, sitting on a 2550mm-long wheelbase.
Fioravanti also unveiled the Tris, a car designed for developing markets. The Tris reduces the tooling costs of a traditional car by 15 percent. Fioravanti increased the standardization of basic body elements and also reduced the complexity of assembly.
