The Ferrari 328 Conciso Concept That Looks Exactly Like a Smiling Shoe

Back in 1993, a little-known design shop in Germany decided to build arguably one of the weirdest Ferraris in existence. The 328 “Conciso” is a re-bodied 1989 328 GTS with no roof and no doors, aimed at the hardcore track driver looking for a (very) unique style. Only one example exists, and now, it can be yours.via(yahoo)

The 328 Conciso, designed and built by Bernd Michalak Design Studio, was first shown at the 1993 Frankfurt Auto Show. It features a sloped nose, black front fenders with integrated headlights, an impossibly low-cut windshield and a minimalist interior with storage space for two helmets.

The car was inspired by the design studio’s philosophy that a sports car should be “athletic, not an extra ounce.”The Concisco retains the mid-mounted 270-horsepower V8 and gated five-speed manual transmission of its 328 GTS underpinnings.


But weighs about 30 percent less thanks to so much less bodywork. Despite it being a one-off concept car, the Conciso seems like it was once a functional track car, as you can see from this in-period development photo from the Hockenheimring.

Since Bonhams doesn’t give a price estimate, there’s no telling how much this Ferrari one-off will sell for. But considering its rarity and interesting styling, we have a feeling it won’t be cheap.
