"He was the first to win races in four classes- Sports Car, Formula One, NASCAR and Indy Car. And of course, the first to win Le Mans at the wheel of a Ford motor car, his head swathed in that "
Ferrari 330GT 2+2 Navarro
This strange beast, based on a stock Ferrari 330 GT2+2 was created by bespoke coach builder Piero Drogo as a one off.
Italian nightclub owner Norbert Navarro was the customer – and we can’t really tell if this particular creation is a triumph or a disaster.
The core of the original Pininfarina designed body remains on ‘The Golden Car’ as it is known, but the fins and extended, snoop-dog nose of this mid-sixties creation makes the car look a little unbalanced.
It was one of a fine series of one-off specials that appeared at this year’s Monterey Car Week in California.
Drogo, a Piedmontese racing driver who competed briefly in Formula 1 in the early sixties, didn’t make many cars – and his career was cut short in a car accident in 1973 – so we can’t judge the man’s skills by this one creation alone.
The 330 GT isn’t the prettiest Ferrari ever made – but it was probably good enough to let well alone!
