using simple materials like cardboard, paint, and foil, french artist benedetto bufalino has humorously transformed an ordinary car into a ferrari testarossa replica. ‘la ferrari sur voiture sans permis’ is modeled after the hot-red luxury vehicle, and is completed by hand painted rims and tires, metallic foil tailpipes, and the signature prancing horse logo fitted on the rear. the cardboard construction is designed to slide just over the hood of a regular car, attaching to its roof and sides. cut-outs in the front and passenger windows allow for driver visibility, which makes the sculptural unit completely functional on the road. watch the video below to see it in action.

  • It reminds me of my first year in (Industrial) Design: discovering cardboard as the magic lost element for ANYthing 🙂
