From Ferrari Wiki
Carrozzeria Scaglietti (IPA: [ˈkarɔˌtsɛria ˌskaˈʎjɛtti]) was an Italy Automobile design and Coachbuilder active in the 1950s. It was founded by Sergio Scaglietti in 1951 as an automobile repair concern, but was located across the road from Ferrari in Maranello outside Modena, Italy.
Scaglietti gained Enzo Ferrari's trust and respect both through his bodywork and design skills and for providing a retreat for Dino Ferrari as a youth. Scaglietti is credited with the "headrest" bump present on most racing Ferraris of the 1950s and 1960s, a design at first despised by Enzo but championed by Dino. The company's 1958 250 Testa Rossa, with its Formula One-inspired pontoon fenders, is one of the most famous designs of the time.
Some famous Ferrari designs by Scaglietti include:
- 1954 375 MM the "Ingrid Bergman car", commissioned by Roberto Rossellini for the actress (also his wife).
- 1957 250 California Spider
- 1958 250 Testa Rossa
- 1962 250 GTO
