Moretti 750 Gran Sport Berlinetta

Chassis

#1294S

The Moretti Berlinetta on the 750 Gran Sport chassis was a particularly attractive offering, resembling, as it did, a scaled-down Ferrari 212 Inter with semi-fastback lines and a two-passenger interior, with “greenhouse” space aft for luggage and the spare tire.

Vehicle Overview

The Moretti 750 Gran Sport Berlinetta emerges as a testament to Giovanni Moretti’s pioneering spirit in the realm of small automobiles. Initially renowned for his racing engines for motorcycles, Moretti transitioned to car manufacturing post-World War II, introducing vehicles powered by his own vertical twin-cylinder engine. However, it was in 1950 that he made a significant leap with the development of a four-cylinder overhead-cam engine, available in both 600 and 750-cubic centimeter sizes. Constructed on a backbone chassis, the Moretti 750 Gran Sport Berlinetta embodied a lively package, offering versatility in several body styles. Collaborations with renowned designers such as Zagato and Giovanni Michelotti resulted in visually striking and aerodynamically efficient designs, elevating the Moretti brand to prominence on both sides of the Atlantic. The year 1952 marked the beginning of a fruitful collaboration between Giovanni Michelotti and Giovanni Moretti, culminating in the creation of the Moretti 750 Gran Sport Berlinetta. This small yet formidable sports car was produced in limited numbers, with a focus on participation in prestigious competitions such as the Mille Miglia and the 24 Hours of Le Mans. It resembled a scaled-down Ferrari 212 Inter with semi-fastback lines and a two-passenger interior, with “greenhouse” space aft for luggage and the spare tire. Characterized by its agile handling, sleek design, and competitive prowess, the 750 Gran Sport Berlinetta captured the imagination of automotive enthusiasts worldwide. Its success on the racing circuit solidified Moretti’s reputation as a manufacturer of high-performance vehicles, while also cementing Michelotti’s legacy as a master of automotive design. In essence, the Moretti 750 Gran Sport Berlinetta remains a shining example of innovation and excellence in the realm of small sports cars, embodying the passion and ingenuity of its creators in every aspect of its design and performance.
