MONTE-CARLO, 1990: MYS­TE­RI­OUS PROJECT COMES TRUE

Key facts: first Car­bon-fi­bre GT in History, 455 bhp V12 Lam­borgh­ini en­gine (in part­ner­ship with the Sant’agata Fac­tory), Tech­ni­cal Direc­tor: Carlo Chiti of Fer­rari and Au­todelta fame – and Prince Al­bert of Monaco & Princess Stephanie as Royal spon­sors...

Founder of newly-born MONTE-CARLO AU­TO­MO­BILE was Ful­vio-maria Bal­labio, a former Le Mans and Indy driver, and mo­tor­boat Cham­pion. His first model was sim­ply one of the most im­pres­sive Super-gran Turismo of its time. Dur­ing pre­lim­i­nary Le Mans 1993 April tests, a Monte-carlo Au­to­mo­bile reached 354 km/h in the Hu­naudières. A very am­bi­tious dream had come true, but was still eco­nom­i­cally frag­ile: very few cars were built and sold. Our car is the first built. Pre­vi­ous own­ers: founder of the make F-M Bal­labio, and Lam­borgh­ini fac­tory.
