High Speed

1967 - 1976

🗃 Grand tourer

In most cases, the Monteverdi models of the high-speed series are technically described as uncomplicated.[1] They were based on a box frame of square tubes. The design of the frame was Monteverdi's own; The rack was manufactured by Stahlbau AG in Muttenz in the canton of Basel-Landschaft, which according to some information at least temporarily belonged to Monteverdi. The engine was regularly a V8 engine from Chrysler, whose output was supposed to be 280 kW (375 hp). This explains the number following the vehicle name. However, when this peak power was actually achieved, it was SAE standard; the corresponding DIN values were about 35% lower. On the other hand, Chrysler's big-block engines, especially those made by Chrysler's Mopar components, could deliver far greater horsepower without major problems.
