Seller Comments: “Monteverdi was a Swiss brand of luxury cars created in 1967 by Peter Monteverdi (1934 – 1998) and based in Binningen, Switzerland. During the late 1950s and early 1960s he built, sold and raced a number of “specials” while at the same time developing the motor vehicle repair business founded by his father into a major dealership handling Ferrari, BMW and Lancia marques.
By 1967, he had decided to undertake series production of exclusive high performance luxury sports and touring cars. The first model, the 2-seater Monteverdi High Speed 375S coupe, was launched at that years Frankfurt Motor Show and received very positive reviews. Designed by Pietro Frua it had aluminum body panels over a square-tube space frame, a De Dion rear axle, was powered by a Chrysler V8 engine delivering 380 bhp and had a luxurious interior all finished to the highest standards. In following years other ‘375’ models were introduced featuring the same basic layout but with variations in wheelbase and power outputs and including 2+2, 4-door 4-seater, and 2-seat convertible versions.”
