Peter Monteverdi was born in Binningen (near Basel in Switzerland), where his father owned a small car repair shop, on June 7th, 1934. Even as a child whose favorite toy was a little pedal car, his enthusiasm for automobiles could be seen. Following his high school education, Peter Monteverdi worked as a volunteer in the „Vevey"-agricultural machine factory. He then began fis four-year apprenticeship as a mechanic in the Adolph Saurer truck factory in Arbon. 

At the age of seventeen, Peter Monteverdi built his first car. Using the wreck of  a Fiat he constructed new body and frame for a sportscar: the MONTEVERDI Special.
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 racing career. In the early sixties, Monteverdi developed a very successful business distributing Ferraris, 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 one of the second series of GT cars, known as the High Speed 375S and is part of a Monteverdi collection that includes the mid-engined Hai, the first series 375S, 375L, 375/4, and Sierra. Peter Monteverdi died in 1998 at age 65 years.
