In his own words, Daniel Garcia says his Ducati 6098 R supercar concept was, rather unsurprisingly, influenced by Ducati’s superbikes. As such it displays several design cues inspired by the world of motorcycling. The shape of the front grille and bonnet were designed to emulate the shape of a bike’s front wheel guard. The curve of the windshield and the pillarless side windows invoke the impression of a motorcycle helmet’s visor. The gold-coloured multi-spoke wheels are also similar to those commonly found on Ducati bikes.
Daniel says ‘One of the challenges when designing the Ducati 6098 R concept was trying to give the car a sense of Italian supercar styling while also trying to keep the car suitably differentiated from Ferrari – after all Ducati is sometimes referred to as the Ferrari of motorcycles.’ We think there’s more Lambo than Ferrari in the DNA, but then that’s no bad thing.
The name of the concept refers to its proposed engine size, so the 6098 R is powered by a mid-mounted 6 098 cc (6.1 litre) V12.
