    Monteverdi High Speed 1967-1970

    Monteverdi High Speed

    The Monteverdi High Speed was a grand tourer automobile built by Monteverdi in Basel, Switzerland from 1967 to 1970. Contemporary rivals included the British Jensen Interceptor (which was also powered by a Chrysler V8).

    This car was designed by the Italian design house Frua and was actually built by Fissore of Italy from 1969. They redesigned the car in 1972 and again in 1975.

    The convertible version of the High Speed 375 was known as the Palm Beach. The car had a 7,206 cc Chrysler V-8 engine that developed 380 to 402 bhp.

    some more shots of HFA 61 (Chassis 1014), Cabriolet and another coupe. Both of the latter cars are owned by the Monteverdi museum.

    High Speed 375/4

    The culmination of the High Speed series was a large four-door sedan called the 375/4 which first appeared in 1971.
    High Speed 375/4

    The wheelbase of the vehicle was extended to 3.15 meters, while the key technical data - particularly the driveline - remained unchanged. The 375 L front end was retained until the A-pillar, followed by four wide-opening doors (with door handles from the Fiat 128), and a sharply drawn roof section. The belt line was largely horizontal, carried through to the long trunk. The interior was fully upholstered in leather and equipped with air conditioning, power windows, and on request a Sony TV and a bar. The car could be used as a chauffeured limousine, with several copies delivered with a partition between the driver and passenger compartments. External details were repeatedly modified, sometimes to meet the ever changing regulatory landscape of the 1970s and sometimes in response to customer requests. One late model, for example, was delivered with single rectangular headlamps borrowed from the Ford Granada, a matte black radiator grille, and rubber-covered bumpers.

    The tail lights were originally from the Alfa Romeo Giulia, as on the 375 L 2+2, but later these were replaced by Triumph TR6 units. Those lights had first been used by Monteverdi for the 1972 Berlinetta, and gave the sedan a more modern appearance.

    With a tv in the back. The amazement it would get. But probably the reception of a signal would be horrible....
