At the 1971 Geneva Show the Swiss manufacturer from Basel, Peter Monteverdi, offered a luxurious 4-door saloon with bodywork designed by the Italian Fissore on his stand. Powered by a large V8 7.2-litre engine providing 375 bhp and coupled to an automatic gearbox, both supplied by Chrysler, the limousine was capable of transporting its passengers in extreme comfort at more than 150 mph.
In addition to the Coupé 375 and Cabriolet 375 C, the Monteverdi range exhibited on the Geneva Show stands also included the 375 High Speed 2+2. All the models were powered by an American V8 7.2-litre engine supplied by Chrysler, which easily produced 375 bhp, hence the models' name. The bodywork was designed and built in Italy by Fissore, where the cars were also assembled.
