Ferrari is running its World Design Contest to help discover the next generation of car design talent, and 200 entries from 50 international design schools have now been reduced to a shortlist of seven., including a team from the RCA.

In the second part of the competition the finalists will have to create three detailed models of their proposal, both as a 1:4 replica and 'virtually' using Alias 3D modelling software. 

Ferrari says, with typical exuberance, that it's looking for 'a pure hypercar, using technologies and materials of the latest generation. A supercar, extreme regarding its architecture and its functional aspects: hyper-light and hyper-fast, hyper-ecologic and hyper-technological.'

The winning proposal will be announced in July, with its designers bagging themselves both an internship at Ferrari and cash prizes.
