Profile

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

The first 450 SS model was produced in 1970 but the challenge of fitting the huge V8 into the petite bodywork made for an ergonomically challenged car with poor handling characteristics. The revised lengthened 450 GTS of 1972 solved this problem.

Sadly the shark (English translation of the German 'Hai') never saw true production with just 2 examples being produced. Monteverdi went on to produce more mainstream road models, before returning to the hypercar market with the 1992 Hai 650 F1.
