Built Especially for Royalty, Heads of State, and Celebrities of the Day
Many automobile enthusiasts ultimate dream is to design and build their own custom prototype sports car with a unique coach built designer body. Such were the days in the 1950’s and 1960’s when affluent individuals could custom order a prototype one-off sports cars from the world’s most renowned automobile companies.
 
 
Car companies within Italy and from around the world would ship their chassis and drive train to Italian designers and coach builders to handcraft these unique automobiles.
 
 
Vignale 375 America
Custom built cars of the 1950’s were each unique. Vignale built custom cars for its exclusive clients. Such a car was the 375 America.
 
Part of the 375 America's appeal was its 4.5-liter V-12 with an output of 300 horsepower at 6300 rpm. Providing a quoted top speed of 144-155 mph, an astronomical figure at a time when most cars struggled to reach 100.

 
Among this car's various owners was actor and car enthusiast Steve McQueen.
 

 
In many cases these chassis carried engines that were slightly detuned versions of the engines designed and used in the company’s race cars. On receiving the chassis, artisans would work day and night to create a unique elegant hand-formed alloy body and custom designer interior. These were cars that were recognized for their style and artistic beauty, and would stop pedestrians in their tracks as they drove by or were exhibited in expositions around the world. Many of these cars were designed and built especially for Royalty, Heads of State, and celebrities of the day.
