Why yes, this is exactly the kind of a car a Bond film baddie henchman would use to take his wife and another couple out on the town. One of very few Swiss cars ever built (and even fewer Monteverdis), the 375/4 is a direct forfather to today’s (and tomorrow’s) bumpercrop of supersaloons. Featuring a tubeframe chassis and an almost fully independent suspension set up, the “375″ in 375/4 refers to the gross horsepower from the Chrysler 440 sitting under the hood. Now, if that’s not enough to sell you, the discerning supervillain gentleman could check the box for a 375/4 High Speed. With that, the 7.2-liter V8 got ditched in favor of a 427 426 HEMI. And you know what that means — tres awesome! Accounts vary when it comes to how many 375/4s were built. Some say fourteen, while others claim only seven. As long as we get one, we don’t care how many there are.
