The Ferrari FSX (Ferrari Sedan Xperiment) is a concept
by Paul Kim, a graduate of the Academy of Art University
in San Fransisco.
The Ferrari FSX is a four-door sedan designed to fit neatly
into the Ferrari lineup. The FSX was, as are most Ferrari
vehicles, influenced by the numerous successes of the
Formula 1 Ferrari team. The concept would be a flagship
model powered by a mid-mounted V12 engine.

The intended market for the Ferrari FSX concept would
be anyone who loves to go on road trips with friends and
family with the thrill and pleasure of a race car, while
not having to worry about lack of room or seats. The sheer
power and energy of a naturally aspirated mid-mounted
V12 reving closely behind the rear passengers would make
it anything but a boring ride in the back seat.
Aside from the stunning styling which goes along way to
hiding the four-door layout, the FSX features some design
elements which are both functional and aesthetically pleasing.
The car utilizes floating A and C pillars which direct
the airflow around the top of the car and funnel it into
the engine bay helping to keep the V12 cool. Air is also
passed through the pivoting rear spoiler to provide additional
downforce, this spoiler also acts as an airbrake.
At the front of the Ferrari FSX is an adjustable front
splitter which channels air into the split radiators mounted
on either side of the car. The splitter also provides
additional downforce over the front axle while helping
smooth the airflow around and under the car.
