Ferrari had a sad day as Sergio Scaglietti passed away

This end of the week was a sad one for Ferrari and for all car fans as Sergio Scaglietti passed away this Sunday at the age of 91. He was very close to the Italian carmaker as decided to name one of its models, the 612 Scaglietti, after him.
The man was the one who, in 1951, founded the Carrozzeria Scaglietti that was actually an auto repair shop, at first. Thanks its talent, he was offered the possibility to build the bodies of classic models like the 1957 250 Testa Rossa and California Spider, but also the 1962 250 GTO.
The Ferrari Group declared their regret for loosing such a great talent, a man who managed to create cars with not a lot of effort thanks to its gift. He used to say that he makes the cars with his hands and his eyes.
