1970 Monteverdi Hai 450 SS
One of the first mid-engine designs, it had a huge 426 ci Chrysler V8 wedged in-between the passengers. 450 was the available horsepower. This radical specification helped the car live up to its Hai name. German for Shark. Monteverdi initially planned to produce 49 copies, but production was halted after the two first examples, the 450 SS and 450 GTS were built.
