“Today is a sad day for Ferrari. We lost a friend, a travel companion, a man who had his name forever connected to the Prancing Horse. Sergio Scaglietti leaves behind the legacy of an artist who created some of the most beautiful cars in our history. We will remember him as a straightforward and honest man, completely dedicated to his work. We will miss him,” said Ferrari Chairman, Luca di Montezemolo regarding the death of Sergio Scaglietti, the legendary Ferrari coachbuilder, who created some of the most famous models such as the Ferrari California, the 250 Testa Rossa, the 250 GTO and the 750 Monza.

Sergio Scaglietti was a natural talent who made cars with his hands and with his eyes, as he liked to say.

The Carrozzeria Scaglietti started to collaborate with Scuderia Ferrari and a great friendship was born between Enzo and Sergio. “He was one of my father’s best friends,” said Piero Ferrari. “He was next to me with Marco Piccinini the day my father died, and stayed with me all night until the funeral. I loved him and he was a very important part of my life. My life will be emptier without Sergio.”

Carrozzeria Scaglietti has been an integral part of Ferrari for many years. To underline the unique relationship with the coachbuilder, Chairman Montezemolo dedicated the 612 Berlinetta to him.
