Ferrari 512S Modulo (2015) by Francis Bernier

The Ferrari 512S Modulo is a classic Italian concept car designed by Paolo Martin for Pininfarina in 1969 / 1970. Francis Bernier, a freelance industrial designer from Canada tried to reproduce the timeless piece as faithfully as he could to the original and this is why this project existed. Read on and enjoy!

For the design to hold up, you have to get all the details right, that was difficult given the limited information and pictures available. Sometimes details are either not very clear, or pictures don’t tell the whole story. It was a fun moment in design history to try and capture.

Unfortunately, I don’t really have “in progress” snapshots to share – here are a few renders I used for personal evaluation of my shapes, with some basic reflections. They are not very aesthetically pleasing however.

About Francis Bernier

Francis Bernier always enjoyed computer graphics ever since he was 12 years old. That passion eventually ended up making him meet a team of two other passionate individuals like him, and together they collaborated and made a video game for the Gameboy Color back in 2000. However, he didn’t feel that’s what he wanted to do with his life and decided to look elsewhere. He stumbled upon Craig Mullins, a digital painter extraordinaire, and he absolutely fell in love with everything he did. Currently, he is a freelance industrial designer and offers a 3D modeling and product rendering services to clients. When he is not working, he loves to do projects such as these and thinks he want to do more from now on. You can find more of his works on his Behance profile or website.
