Not all 375 MMs were finished as competition cars and this is one of five fitted with a one-off show car body by an Italian carrozzeria. This particular example was fitted by Ghia with a particularly striking body, finished in a highly unusual salmon over grey two-tone exterior. Shown at the 1955 Turin Auto Show, chassis 0476AM had been commissioned by American enthusiast Robert C. Wilke, who at one point would own seven Ferraris, most of which were custom built for him. He was the owner of the Leader Card company and a prominent sponsor of an Indy 500 team from the 1930s through to his death in 1970. This Giovanni Savonuzzi designed 375 MM Coupe Speciale was undoubtedly his most extravagant Ferrari, and also the last Ferrari clothed by Ghia. Wilke would own the car until his passing and drove it for 12,000 km. The only modification carried out during his ownership was the addition of seatbelts from an International Harvester.

Прежде всего хочу сказать, что BBR каким то образом умудрились напутать с номером шасси, указав на упаковке и подставке 0347AL. В реалии это шасси 0476AM и премьера машины состоялась в 1955 на Туринском автосалоне. Машина была выпущена в довольно интересном окрасе "salmon / metallic grey". Тип кузова был рассчитан на американский рынок. Также отмечу, что в некоторых источниках буквенная составляющая номера шасси отмечена как ММ.
