 Enzo 2011 Ferrari Concept Cars By Peter Simon
 
Next-generation Ferrari Enzo design concept, inspired by the form language of Credo E-Bone, another design by the same designer that’s no less that a city bus. This designer takes the Italian dynamic and organic, soft shapes that are closest to nature. Inside and out, this vehicle is meant to radiate energy and power. Peter Simon designed an incredible Ferrari Concept Cars, based on the Credo E-Bone form language.

Inside and out, this vehicle is meant to radiate energy and power. The inspiration is no less than animal and human bones, creating a dynamic supercar that’s highly energetic.
This is the Ferrari Concept Cars - 2011 Ferrari Enzo Concept By Peter Simon, a car that never ever stops, but appears to sit in time even as it flies down the highway. In the event that our fantasy does come true, concept designer Peter Simon already has an idea of what he thinks the Enzo successor is going to look like.
Featuring a far more aggressive nose and front end than the real Enzo, Simon’s concept work is the personification of a car that certainly poses a design identity that’s all its own.
According to Simon, the inspiration behind his work was taken from – get this – human and animal bones. Simon took his inspiration, weird as it sounds, and combines with the flair of Maranello to create a striking study that boasts of swooping angles that we’ve never seen from an actual Prancing Horse.
It’s not hard to imagine what the world would be like if Ferrari did come out with a successor to the venerable Enzo supercar. As one of the meanest and most awesome supercars to come out of Maranello in history, the Ferrari Enzo certainly has no equal – that is unless a successor to it comes along down the road.

The car seats four  and features a photo-voltaic rooftop ,a slim bio-battery provides stability and regenerative capacitor technology that recoups 60% of kinetic energy spent.
The vehicle is powered by concentric hub-less in-wheel electric motors, which also acts as a suspension and steering, using magnetic levitation and propulsion. Concentric magnetic rings amplify rotation with each outer ring to boost high-speed performance and provide independent wheel control for ultimate handling and maneuverability.
Nissan’s president Carlos Ghosn has publicly said that the company’s success depends on its ability to develop and deploy electric vehicles that excite the masses. The iV is part of Nissan’s zero emissions future. The Renault/Nissan partnership with Better Place will result in more than 100,000 battery-swap enabled sedans on the road in Israel and Denmark, with cars and charging infrastructure slated for Toronto, Hawaii and the San Francisco Bay Area.
Through superior technology, Nissan iV maximize the driving experience by eliminating the excess burden. Nissan will meet a deep longing for pleasure driving with beautiful electric car capable of providing satisfactory performance without the need to feel guilty.
