For the Nostalgia Seekers: The Ferrari Aliante Barchetta

Finding a car in 2019 that boasts a complete fuel-powered drive, a manual gearbox, and zero electronic driving aids can be quite a challenge. However, the Alia​nte Barchetta, an Italian for “gliding boat,” takes inspiration from Ferrari’s glorious past.

This conceptual beauty is designed for nostalgic petrolheads who crave the raw experience of driving. With a naturally aspirated flat 12 engine, independent throttle bodies, and a manual gearbox, the Alia​nte Barchetta’s appeal lies in its complete absence of electronic driving aids.

Although it retains cues from Ferrari and Pininfarina’s design language from the 2000s, the Alia​nte Barchetta offers a classic-meets-contemporary design approach, setting it apart from the edgy, faceted design language of modern-day supercars.

The car comes with a carbon fiber monocoque with integrated seats, big scoops, no doors, no windows, and no roof, making it a unique and bold design statement. Designed by a supercars-of-the-heyday fanatic, the 2019 Alia​nte Barchetta concept clearly pays tribute to the golden era of automotive design, even if, as designer Daniel Soriano eloquently states in his design brief, “modern hipsters will hate it.”
