When you say or hear "Ducati" the first thing that comes to mind is a cool, red sports motorcycle, but how about thinking about it in a whole new way? Maybe a sports car with a new design by Ducati? Okay, so this isn’t for real, but it would be a cool concept and something that a designer might undertake in his design studies.

Young designer Anthony Collard imagined a hardcore 2-seater sports car powered by two Ducati Desmosedici RR V8 engines (each developing 200 HP). When talking about his project, Collard said: "“The car has a mixed tubular/carbon body structure, covered by carbon panels and painted fairings. … it has Ohlins suspension on the four wheels….The engine is a in central front position (just behind the front wheel axis, like for example on a SLR McLaren), and it is a V8 made of two L4 Desmosedici engines. So it develops about 420hp for a car weighting 420-450kg, thanks to all the carbon elements. The wheels are, as on any Italian bike, Marchesinis."

So, considering KTM has the X-Bow, is a Ducati sports car soemthing of a possibility?

there are a lot of carbons used here just to make it more lighter and faster. I’m pretty sure KTM are now scratching their asses to beat the hell out of it.
