Description

The fascination for the Monteverdi brand is increasing and understandable if you deal with the Monteverdi brand and its creator, the ingenious designer Peter Monteverdi. At the age of 17 he designed his first car, the Monteverdi Spezial, at 21 he was appointed Ferrari agency for all of Switzerland (except Bern), and at 26 he built his first Formula 1 car (after having previously designed a number of racing cars and Formula Junior vehicles) At 33, he designed the first Monteverdi car with road approval - the 375 S High Speed ​​Frua with a short wheelbase. The lifetime achievement of this well-known Swiss racing driver, constructor, businessman and designer is enormous, multifaceted, fascinating and formative! For further information on this exciting personality, the writer recommends the recently published (over 300 pages) book “Monteverdi - A Swiss Automotive Adventure”.

Now we come to the Monteverdi 375 S High Speed‹Frua with a short wheelbase from the very first series that is under discussion here. According to the latest information, 10 cars are said to have been built, 4 of these 10 are supposed to still exist - the coupé for sale here is not only considered the best first-series vehicle, but also one of the best vehicles still in existence from the Peter Monteverdi factory.

The 375 S High Speed Coupe from Frua is considered to be the most elegant version of the entire 375 series. The history has been completely known since delivery, the extensive documentation includes many receipts, invoices, pictures, contemporary documents, etc.

The sports coupé was completely restored in the mid-1990s by the current honorary president of the Monteverdi Club (who owned this exclusive coupé for almost 20 years) in his own workshop (which, by the way, was already doing a lot of bodywork for Monteverdi automobiles at that time). The high quality of this restoration is shown by the fact that you still have the feeling today that the car has just been completely restored! According to the previous owner, Peter Monteverdi was convinced of the excellent restoration on the occasion of a test drive.

This Monteverdi has taken part in countless rallies at home and abroad over the past decades, has been featured in reports and reports, participated in exhibitions, won a Concours d 'Elegance twice, and was admitted to the Concours d' Elegance Villa d in 2004 'Estonians, etc.

At the end of the 1960s, the German magazine “Hobby” published a comparison test entitled “What are Playboy Cars?” In which the four two-seaters Lamborghini Miura, Maserati Ghibli, De Tomas Mangusta & Monteverdi 375 S High Speed ​​were compared. The car from Switzerland earned the highest number of points & clearly outperformed the three competitors! Comfort, handling and engine flexibility spoke in favor of the Monteverdi - which is why it was judged to be the best all-rounder among the four vehicles tested.

The delivery is fresh from Service & Veteranen-MFK.

Unique design, extremely exclusive & rare sports coupé made in Switzerland - vive la Suisse!
