1953 Ferrari 340/375 MM Berlinetta

1953 Ferrari 340/375 MM Berlinetta

Built for the 1953 24 Hours of Le Mans, the type 340/375 combined the Mille Miglia-winning 340 chassis with Ferrari’s F1 V12 engine. It was Ferrari’s weapon of choice for many endurance sports car races. Mike Hawthorn and Giuseppe Farina won the 1953 24 Hours of SPA outright in their 340/375, but outright victories at Le Mans and the Carrera Panamericana eluded the model.

Pinin Farina was Ferrari’s new coach builder of choice for competition cars and for the 375, they simply lengthened the Berlinetta body crafted initially for the 250 MM. Most of the length was added to clear the much larger engine which lengthened the hood considerably. Internal documents show that the body was designated “Special Le Mans-1953.”

This digital restyling was simple — just a wheel and tire change.
