Ferrari 375 MM Spider Pinin Farina 1953

Ferrari 375 MM Spider Pinin Farina 1953

The story of the  Ferrari 375 MM goes back in 1950 with the development of the Lampredi atmospheric 4.5 Litre  V12 engine for the Formula One Grand Prix Challenge. in 1949, Giacchino Colombo had developed the Ferrari 1500 cc Supercharged V12. After further development it was concluded that some limits were reached.

The rules for Grand Prix stipulated either supercharged 1500 cc engine or atmospheric admission up to 4.500 cc engines. The 4.5 Litre Talbot had demonstrated lower fuel consumption and no refuelling pit stop when compared to supercharged power units.

Enzo Ferrari thus decided to stop the supercharged solution and move to 4.5 Litre atmospheric V12. Aurelio Lampredi soon started developing a new V12 with longer engine block to accommodate larger bore cylinders. The development occurred in several gradual steps moving from 275 3.3 Litre  to 340 4.1 Litre reaching finally the 375 4.5 Litre V12 target. José Froilan Gonzales won the 1951 Great Britain Grand Prix driving the Ferrari 375 F1 at Silverstone on July 14th.

Before that time the different versions of the Lampredi long V12 had been implemented also in sports racing cars and berlinettas.

Ferrari has won the Mille Miglia ever since 1948 with Clemente Biondetti on on a Ferrari 166S Coupe Allemano to 1953with Giannino Marzotto on a Ferrari 340 MM  Spider Vignale.
This can explain the "MM" in the model designation.

Fifteen Ferrari 375 MM were completed with spider body by Pinin Farina while about  three other 375 MM chassis received the famous Berlinetta body by the same Pinin Farina. A few Ferrari 375 MM spider were later converted to berlinette like the one commissioned by Rosellini to Scaglietti.  It was only in 1954 when the Ferrari 375 MM Spider received a 4.9 Litre version of the Lampredi V12 that Ferrari had the now called Ferrari 375 MM Plus winning Le Mans 24 Hours for the second time.

There are photos of two Ferrari 375 MM Spider, one introduced by Emilio Gnutti from Italy concorrente in Villa d'Este 2007 while the other  was entered by Andreas Mohringer (A) for the Villa d'Este Concorso d'Eleganza 2011.
