Profile

Swiss manufacturer Peter Monteverdi combined stylish European bodywork with a powerful American V8 to produce the exciting Monteverdi Hai supercar.

Undeniably powerful, the 180mph Hai was supposedly a very 'challenging' drive. Just two of this rarest of supercars were made during the 1970's both powered by a Chrysler 7 litre V8 encompassed by Fiore styled bodywork.

20 years later, Monteverdi unveiled the Hai's successor the awesome 650SS. This time power was a mind blowing 650bhp from what was basically a Cosworth Formula One engine!
