We are at the dawn of 1931 on the Italian Monza track: the need to install short leaf spring suspensions suitable for the high speeds of the parabolic curve prompted the designers to shorten an already excellent frame. The legendary Monza Frame was born.
Years after, the vicissitudes of the War periods caused the loss of many of these exquisite frames but today, a century later, they are available again!
Original Monza Frame. This frame was manufactured in 1931 with number 2111006 and had been displayed in Lars Anderson Museum in Brooklins, Massachusetts.
This pictures was taken in the 60´s after a long restoration work.
A total of 12 Monza Frames were manufactured in the 1930´s. Later, frames of different type were converted into "Monza" spec.

The original drawings are missing but its measures can be deducted from the "Corto" frame, the main difference being the front leaf spring installation. It was presented on the hystorical Monza track in 1931.

The re-design was extended up to the thiniest detail so a realistic rendering can retrieve the beauty of this car frame.
The computer re-design will preserve the Monza Frame in the decades to come.
