Ferrari 750 Monza Scaglietti Spider 1954
The four-cylinder 750 Monza made its debut in June 1954 with a first-time-out win at Monza. The body of the 750 Monza was designed by Enzo Ferrari’s son Dino and built by Scaglietti. This car was a works entry in the 1955 Mille Miglia, driven by Sergio Sighinolfi; it finished sixth, having taken 11 hours 33 minutes 27 seconds to complete the 998-mile course, an average of over 86 mph (138 km/h). After the race it was sold to Jacques Jonneret of Geneva, Switzerland, and raced by him until 1957 with some success, including a second overall and first in class at the 1956 Mont Ventoux hillclimb. He sold the car to Peter Monteverdi, who fitted a special coupe body with gullwing doors. It was acquired by the Louwman Collection in 1989 and restored with a correct Scaglietti body taken from a sister car in the 1970s.
