Richard Ferlazzo's three car dream garage

Richard Ferlazzo's three car dream garage

Holden’s design chief and creator of the Efijy concept reveals – and draws – the cars he’d park in his garage

Jaguar E-Type Roadster

“The quintessential British sports car. Absurdly long engine hood, over-bodied and narrow-tracked over skinny tyres, yet it works perfectly. It exudes poise and potency. Sure, it’s more common than some other exotics but familiarity should not detract from its significance. I think it’s glorious from every angle. Truly sublime.”

Ferrari 275 GTB

“So many beautiful Ferraris to choose from, but I’ve always held a fascination for the 275. A full-bodied, curvaceous Grand Tourer with a powerful hood and bulging haunches over the rear wheels that clearly announce its singular reason for being. Ridiculously expensive and probably impossible to live with, but hypnotic just to look upon.”

C2 Corvette Sting Ray

“Arguably one of GM’s finest works, the C2 Corvette exemplifies all that was great about American styling from the halcyon days of the 1960s. Muscular and purposeful, yet not overt. Sculptural blister shapes over the wheelarches, flip-up headlamps and iconic split rear window made it truly distinctive. Oh, and a big V8.”
