1959 Chevrolet Corvette Scaglietti Coupe

Primarily known for their coachwork on Ferrari race cars, Scaglietti handcrafted just three Corvette Italias in collaboration with Gary Laughlin, Jim Hall and Carroll Shelby. The Italia was intended to be produced in limited numbers, and would have competed in the same market as high-performance European sports cars, but General Motors declined to support the project. Shelby later turned to Ford for backing, but was also declined, although he eventually collaborated with them on the Shelby Cobra and Shelby Mustang.
