Ugur Sahin is slowly making his mark on the automotive industry. Well known for his USD Corvette Z03 concept, which is actually entering production later this year, Sahin today released images of his latest work – the USD GT-S Passionata concept.
The USD GT-S Passionata is based on the Ferrari 599 Fiorano aluminum space frame chassis and mechanicals. That means under the hood is a V12 620-hp engine. Sahin says that the car is a grand sports tourer inspired by the design language ‘of Ferrari’s iconic GT and race cars from the sixties.’
The USD GT-S Passionata is being presented as a feasible design concept, meaning if there is enough interest from customers, production can be arranged.
