Ferrari F12berlinetta wins ADI Compasso d’Oro Award

The Ferrari F12berlinetta has been awarded the Compasso d’Oro Award for Design (aka the Golden Compass). This is one of the oldest and most prestigious international design accolades and was presented in Milan this year on May 28 to Ferrari’s Senior VP of Design, Flavio Manzoni.

In presenting the award, the ADI design jury praised the F12berlinetta for its “flowing, dynamic forms” that use innovative aerodynamic solutions in a true marriage of technology and aesthetics.


This award follows on Ferrari receiving the Compasso d’Oro for industrial and engineering achievements in 2001. This year is the sixtieth anniversary for the Compasso d’Oro awards.
