Hello!

Does anyone know something about this car?

Looks like Lombardi, but it is a Spider?

Hello Carlos,
Know nothing about this particular car, but it looks like a Giannini version of the Lombardi "Monza", a targa top (or spider) version of the Lombardi Grand Prix.
The dutch website for Lombardi Grand Prix http://home.planet.nl/~fredr079....... gives some data and comparisons.
I attach one image of the car you  questioned, and some images of the "Monza" version of the Lombardi I have downloaded over the years.
Regards   Trevor

Carlos,

Another 2 images of a car, described on the Dutch website as a  Giannini Grand Prix Monza;  I note it has the same wheel arches and front spoiler as the car you enquired about.

Regards   
Trevor

Hi there

This car was offered at auction a couple of years ago and didn't sell.
Then it got snapped up by someone and restored. It was for sale with Hyman Ltd in the US.
Seems to have sold now.
