Chassis: 0578M
A works car, this chassis was first fitted with a three-litre, four-cylinder engine. As a 750 Monza, it was then driven to an outright win at Mugello by Umberto Maglioli in June of 1955. It was then briefly raced as 500 Mondial with a two-litre engine, with Maglioli finishing second overall at Imola and then third in the Coppa d'Oro delle Dolomiti. The three-litre engine was back in for the Aosta - Gran San Bernardo hill-climb, won by Maglioli. In August of 1955, it was back at the factory once more and modified to its definitive 857 S configuration. It was easily identifiable as such thanks to the two humps on the engine cover. Maglioli was back the wheel of the car for the Tourist Trophy. Sharing with Maurice Trintingant, he finished eighth overall. The following season, Olivier Gendebien and Phill Hill used the car to win the over three-litre class at the Buenos Aires 1000 km. Returned to the factory, 0578M had its identity swapped with 0584M and was then sent out to Sebring. Alfonso de Portago and James Kimberly failed to finish the race due to an engine failure.

As chassis 0584M, 0578M was then sold to Peter Whitehead in the United Kingdom. The car then went to New Zeeland where it was briefly raced early in 1957. It then moved to Sweden to replace a crashed 750 Monza. From that car, the three-litre engine was fitted to the car before it was raced through to the 1960 season. It was damaged and quite crudely rebuilt. During the next decades, it was in British hands and eventually restored and fitted with a correct 857 S engine, numbered 0584M. Following a brief spell in Canadian hands, it has been part of a collection of a prominent London-based Australian enthusiast. A leading industrial designer, he has since regularly campaigned the 857 S in historic events.
