Ferrari’s are legendary creatures. The symbol of the prancing horse is the worlds most universally recognized logo. Their machines have cemented their place in global history and Sergio Scaglietti was responsible for designing many including the famed 250 GTO. Sadly he has passed away.
Luca di Montezemolo said “Today is a sad day for Ferrari. We lost a friend, a travel companion, a man who had his name forever connected to the Prancing Horse. Sergio Scaglietti leaves behind the legacy of an artist who with his talent created some of the most beautiful cars of our history. Who had the luck to know him like I did will also remember him as a straightforward and honest man, completely dedicated to his work. We will miss him.”
“He was one of my father’s best friends,” said Piero Ferrari. “He was next to me with Marco Piccinini also the day my father died and stayed with me the whole night until the funeral. I loved him and he was a very important part of my life. My life will be emptier without Sergio.”
R.I.P Mr Scaglietti.
