When coachwork WAS an ART form....1951 Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 SS.

So many cars today look like a Tupperware party................for real.
Working plastic molds verses working metal...not even close.
Kids play with plastic.

Ingrid Bergman's 1954 Ferrari 375 MM Berlinetta Coupé

Film director Roberto Rosselini had one of the best known romances with Swedish actress Ingrid Bergman (Casablanca fame) who eventually became his wife. He commissioned the 1954 Pininfarina Ferrari 375MM Coupé Speciale chassis #0456AM as a gift for Bergman, hence calling it the “Bergman Coupé”, even though she never received the car. It made its first public appearance at the Paris Salon Auto Show in 1954 before being delivered to Roberto Rossellini.

Whether it was a publicity stunt or an actual gesture of love (or both) the car is an amazing sight much like the beautiful actress. Regardless of how the conversations went prior to starting construction any reason was a good reason to build it and a clever story to boot. The one-off car has covered headlights that “pop up” which were very modern for 1954 and side coves that were copied by GM and applied to the 1956 Corvette, it also has a rear hatchback. The gold paint is appropriately called Grigio Ingrid.

Rosselini was on a roll and being an avid Ferrari owner he had a Ferrari 375MM Pininfarina spyder that had suffered an accident so he sent the car to coach builder Sergio Scaglietti to make a coupé for the street. This was chassis #0402AM. The 1954 Mercedes 300SL gullwing was a styling influence and can be seen in the cab shape and back end of Scaglietti’s design.

Both of these cars are special, they are some of the few to receive custom coachwork on the Ferrari 375MM chassis. Of course they have a V12 under the bonnet and while racing was Enzo Ferrari’s passion and road cars were a good way to support this, the beautiful styling cues that came out of this co-creation are amazing and the design influences are still present till this day.
 

ŠKODA 1100 OHC (1957) The beautiful dream of Le Mans​

The Škoda 1100 OHC (type 968) is a two-seat sports car, derived from the Škoda 1101 "Tudor" and considered the successor to the Škoda Sport. It came out in 1957 and had a plastic or aluminium body.

The water-cooled four-cylinder four-stroke engine had double overhead camshafts, a displacement of 1089 cc and a power output of 67.6 kW (92 hp). As the car only weighed 550 kg (1,213 lb) the car could reach speeds of 190 kilometres per hour (118 mph).[1] The body was of semi-monocoque construction with an additional frame of thin-walled tubes. Only four cars were built, two spiders with a plastic body, and two coupes with an aluminium body.[1]

such a beauty. judging by their other cars, the designer must have quit? lol
 
Absolutely, absolutely beautiful.
It's more beautiful now with the new paint (well 15 months old now), but it's been in the shop ever since getting all the nit picky details dialed in, and replacing some failed parts (such as the 3.55 gears that gave up the ghost 3 weeks ago with new HP hardened steel 3.73 gears). The shop tells me I'll have it back next week...I've heard that before. Be nice to have it home after 18 months +/-....
