History: Peter Monteverdi constructed his first car when he was 17 years old. While still in his early twenties, he formed his own racing team, MBM (Monteverdi Binningen Motors), and he competed successfully in many international events, piloting his own cars. A near fatal crash in a Porsche powered Formula 1 MBM ended his career. In the early sixties, Monteverdi developed a very successful business distributing Ferrari’s Lancia, BMW, and Rolls Royce. However, following a disagreement with Enzo Ferrari, at age 33, he decided to design and build his own Gran Turismo. This car is a 2+2 and the most numerous of all the Monteverdi models built. Other Monteverdi's that have been owned by this enthusiast over the years include the Hai (mid engined supercar), the first and second series 2 seater GT's, the 375S and 375SS, and the 4 door sedans, the 375/4 and Sierra. Peter Monteverdi died in 1998 at age 65 years.

Production: The High Speed 375L was introduced at the 1969 Geneva Salon and was Monteverdi’s first 2 + 2, four seat car and was built on a stretched (by 6 inches) 375S chassis. A total of 66 375/L’s were built and these represent about 60% of all Monteverdi production, of all types.
