Some of you may have never heard of this brand but between 1946 and 1955, Ermini built and powered around 40 automobiles, all sports cars that rivalled, like Osca and Cisitalia, the more high-profile and powerful Ferrari, Maserati, Porsche and Mercedes models, sometimes, quite incredibly, even managing to beat them.
On the legendary streets of the Mille Miglia, as well as those of the Targa Florio, the Florentine automaker wrote some of the most glorious and unforgettable chapters in that period of Italian and international motor sports. In just over ten years Ermini or Ermini-powered cars made over 600 appearances in domestic and international races.
And now in 2014, thanks to the partnership with Osella of Turin, the Ermini of the 21st century will make its bow with it’s latest ceation, the Ermini Seiottosei which will be making its world debut at this year’s Geneva Motor Show
