Sergio Scaglietti passes away at 91

Sergio Scaglietti passes away at 91

It has been confirmed that late last night, the world lost a true genius in the art of car design. Sergio Scaglietti, the man behind the designs of the 1957 250 California Spider, 1958 250 Testa Rossa, and 1962 250 GTO, among others, has passed away. He was 91 years old.

Sergio Scaglietti doesn’t need too much of an introduction in the eyes of Ferrari lovers. He started his work in 1951 when he opened Carrozzeria Scaglietti - an Italian automobile design and coachbuilding company. The coachbuilder was located just across the road from Ferrari in Maranello, where the great Enzo Ferrari took notice of the talented designer. Scaglietti was one of the few designers that gained Enzo Ferrari’s trust and respect both through his bodywork and design skills. Scaglietti of course started designing cars for Ferrari, and was even honored with a few cars named after him, such as the 612 Scaglietti and 456M GT Scaglietti.

"He was one of my father’s best friends," said Piero Ferrari. "He was next to me with Marco Piccinini also the day my father died and stayed with me the whole night until the funeral. I loved him and he was a very important part of my life. The world is emptier without Sergio."

After a lifetime of dedication to the designing of vehicles, Sergio Scaglietti passed away at his home in Modena. The world has undoubtedly lost an automotive icon. We have great respect for his work and send our condolences to his family.

2011 Ferrari 340 Mexico Berlinetta by GWA-Tuning

2011 Ferrari 340 Mexico Berlinetta by GWA-Tuning

The Ferrari 340 Mexico Berlineta is one of the most unique cars on the market, fetching an astounding $4.3 million at RM Auctions in March 2011. That princely sum is justified considering the 340 Mexico was produced in just three examples, each built exclusively for the 1952 Carrera Panamericana race in Mexico. One of these units, chassis number 0224 AT and driven by Luigi Chinetti, was successful in crossing the finish lane in third place behind two Mercedes 300SL Gullwing models. And, this is the car GWA Tuning has chosen to celebrate with a tributary model.

Using a Ferrari 456 platform as a base, GWA Tuning was able to bring the classic 340 Mexico Berlinetta into modern times. This 456 platform was re-bodied by Coach Building master, Mark Nungent, from Australia. The body was then fixed up with a new diffuser, rear spoiler, side vents, and front splitters, all of which came from newer Ferraris. The body was also stretched by about 15 inches (mostly in the middle) to fit the new platform, but the wheelbase remained the same.

1998 Ferrari 456M GTA

1998 Ferrari 456M GTA

Toward the end of 1989, there was a big hiccup in the Ferrari lineup. Ferrari had been selling the same big V-12 2+2 since 1972 at that point, mildly updated and renamed every few years. And as the company looked at entering the ’90s with a design and horsepower number from 1972, Ferrari decided instead to kill off the 412, even though there was no replacement yet. It was two years before another big 2+2 would show up to replace the 412, and not counting limited production supercars, it was the only time in the company’s history that a gap like that existed.

It might seem like an extreme, but a radical change was needed, and when the 456 finally debuted in 1992, it was very clear that Ferrari had completely rethought its approach to this segment. Not only that, but in 1992, the 456 was by far the most modern car in the company lineup, as well as the a more powerful car than anything Ferrari had ever built, with the single exception of the F40. It set a new standard for Ferrari in the ’90s, and paved the way for a complete styling overhaul, things no 2+2 had done before.

1998 - 2003 Ferrari 456M GT

The 456M (M for modified) GT represents the evolution of a Ferrari for those wanting four seats and diverse sporting ability. Though a Ferrari is a two-seater by birth, 2+2 versions have long represented an important tradition for the marque. 1948’s Turin Show saw the Touring four-seat version of the "Barchetta" that won the 1949 Le Mans 24-hours, demonstrating the direct relationship between practical road car and state of the art sports racer. The 456M likewise represents the optimum balance of 12-cylinder performance with the comfort of a 2+2 GT Ferrari.

In 1966 ’2+2’ first appeared on a Ferrari: Pininfarina’s 250GT. Since then, Pininfarina has risen to the challenge of designing every Ferrari 2+2. The quality of Pininfarina’s original 456 styling was so fine that redesign would have been premature. Evolution was chosen to improve and refine mechanicals and aerodynamics while keeping the successful interpretation of a 2+2 with a V-12 coupled to a rear transaxle. The 456M GT enjoyed aerodynamic and thermal improvements, a more functional cockpit, improved space efficiency, and finer performance, ergonomics, and safety
