Ferrari 308 GT Rainbow Concept


If you’re thing is late period futurism: then there’s little that can beat the Rainbow Concept by Bertone.

With a jangle of angular lines and a manually retractable folding roof, this format not only predates Ferrari’s 458 Italia by a good thirty years, it is saturated in influences and stylistic cues that you can see in so many production cars – from the Fiat X1/9 to the Triumph TR7 and more besides.

Bertone’s Marcello Gandini was given the luxury of not having to consider this concept as a potential sales model for Ferrari – but anyone interested in car design can see how the concept was used to flex the woulds, the ifs and the maybes.

Gotta love the house of Bertone
