Ermenegildo Bartoletti founded this firm in Forli, Italy to build horse-carriages. With time his firm Carrozzeria Bartoletti graduated to build some of the world’s most well-known transporters for several brands such as Ferrari, Maserati, Shelby, etc.
Since Ferrari was an active participant in various races, they wanted a transporter that would carry all – men, racing cars and spares. So they order Bartoletti to produce four transporters. Ferrari eventually would use two of the transporters for actual races, while the other two were used for transporting their car bodies built by Scaglietti (who did most of the Ferrari bodies) between Modena and Maranello.
This particular model was built on the chassis of a bus model from FIAT, called 642 which was first produced in 1952. The RN2, a latter version came equipped with a more powerful 6.6 litre engine (because of her front-grille, this truck/bus model was nicknamed “a baffo” which means moustache, in Italian).
These transporters that would carry up to 3 cars soon became an iconic vehicle and got associated with Ferrari’s winning cars.
