Automobili Di Inferi


#1

The Di Inferi or Dii Inferi (Latin, “the gods below”) were a shadowy collective of ancient Roman deities associated with death and the underworld. The epithet inferi is also given to the mysterious Manes, a collective of ancestral spirits. The most likely origin of the word Manes is from manus or manis, meaning “good” or “kindly,” which was a euphemistic way to speak of the inferi so as to avert their potential to harm or cause fear.

Di Inferi is an Italian high-performance automobile manufacturer, established in Ravenna, Italy, in 1918. It specializes in high-end luxury and performance, while also branching out every now and then.

What better way to start a thread than this?

As Di Inferi’s most advanced internal-combustion fighter for the road, the Prototipo Dieci (Prototype Ten) takes no prisoners. Instead, it holds you down, tears your internal organs to shreds and sets a blistering lap time while it’s at it.

The internals consist of a twin-turbocharged 4.1L V10, producing upwards of 915 horsepower. It weighs 1144kg, and due to having the tendency to puncture eardrums (among other things) is not road-legal.

The Dieci was featured as the cover car for Automation’s update on April 11th, 2019.

Looks mental, feels mental, is mental. Well done!

Edit: The Strada is not quite as unhinged as the balls-out, big-winged Dieci, but it still looks and feels every inch a supercar - which is exactly as it should be.

Due to popular demand, it had to be done.


The Dieci’s road-legal sister, the Dieci Strada, produces slightly less power, and weighs a little bit more. On the upside (or down, depending on how you look at it) it’s also slightly less murderous. The example shown here is finished in Rosso Ultramagnolia.

Yasssss lets go!! Long awaited by many, I can’t wait to relive your designs :stuck_out_tongue:
They will provide inspiration for many new people. I speak from experience there

The Di Inferi B12 (Berlinetta 12) is a Super GT car, meaning it can take you thousands of miles very quickly, yet also very comfortably. The 525hp 5.6 liter naturally aspirated V12 engine provides a smooth power band, and the sleek, aerodynamic design makes it look like a speeding bullet.


Featured here is the original prototype car.


This example is finished in Blu Mista.

This is a special edition of the B12, named the Berlinetta 12 Finale, or B12F. This car is quite sentimental to me, as it was, for a while, what I assumed would be the last car I’d ever make.

This car is probably what I’d consider my best work, and definitely the car I spent the longest on. The power has been increased, the weight has been reduced, and the design has been heavily reworked and improved.


The more I look at this car, the more I like it. I know one shouldn’t brag about their own work, but man, I love this car.


#8

This is the Di Inferi B12F-B, abbreviated from Berlinetta 12 Finale Barchetta.

Then it turned out the Finale wouldn’t be my final car, I decided to go back to the B12F and have a little fun. The B12F-B is mostly just a design exercise, but was still a very fun one nonetheless. It’s much lighter than the B12F, and has very little in terms of driver comforts. It doesn’t even have a roof!


The B12F-B is, as any Di Inferi should be, a little temperamental.


#9

I have never been so impressed…


#10

This is the Di Inferi Catania.

A lengthy Grand Tourer available with 2, 4 and 5 seats, the Catania lets its purring V10 - available with either 378hp or 556hp for the road going trim - do all the work while you relax in the luxurious cabin.

Don’t worry, it still revs to 9,000, and lets out one hell of a roar.


This Blu Cirrus example is the S model, which is upped to 556 horsepower.

You might have seen in in the Car Redesigning thread, but here it is again; The Di Inferi Ozen.

This is not my most complex car, as it was designed around early 2019. It hasn’t got very many fixtures, but still works well in my opinion. It’s powered by a rather devious high-displacement V8, and goes like a rocket.


This is also one of the few cars I’ve released the .car file for, so here you go. Do whatever you want with it - redesign it, retune it, anything. Just let me know if you do, I’d love to see!
