Ferrari 750 Monza Scaglietti
Deze 750 Monza Scaglietti is de eerste race-Ferrari die met schijfremmen wordt uitgerust.
This Ferrari has plenty of racing history. The car was raced by many great names in motorsports, such as Mike Hawthorn, Maurice Trintignant, Umberto Maglioli and José Froilán Gonzales. Driven by the Dreyfus/Lucas team this car also took part at Le Mans in 1955, the infamous race in which Pierre Levegh’s Mercedes flew into the crowd, killing some eighty people including Levegh himself.
This 3.0-litre four-cylinder Ferrari racer was designed by Dino Ferrari, Enzo’s son, and constructed by coachbuilder Scaglietti.
The 750 Monza was developed in the early 1950s because large-capacity four-cylinder engines were proving to be performing very well in the then new Formula 1. The first Ferrari 750 Monzas were fitted with large drum brakes but, as an experiment, these were replaced with disc brakes.
