The Monterey auction scheduled for August 20 will unveil a classic 1953 Ferrari 375 America coupe. Auctioneers are expecting an estimate of $1,750,000 to $2,100,000 for the treasure. Its features include a 300 bhp, 4,523 CC V-12 engine, triple Weber 40DCZ3 dual-choke carburetors, four-speed all-synchromesh manual gearbox, oval-section tubular steel ladder-type chassis, independent front suspension with unequal-length A-arms and transverse leaf spring, live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs, and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes.
This is just one of 12 original 375 Americas and was presented at the Geneva Salon car show of 1954.
The 375 America catered to Ferrari’s elite road-car buyers who enjoyed the thrills of a spiked-up engine in a luxurious setting.
