1957→1959 OSCA FS 372

Officine Specializzate Costruzioni Automobili (OSCA) produced just a few examples of the FS 372 which was a sports car that used the 1.5-liter Formula 2 (F2) engine. This raced a larger class than the much more common 1.1-liter MT4.

Almost all the cars came with an aluminum body designed by Fratelli Morelli which was similar to the 750cc and other OSCAs. The FS 372 is unique because the exhaust exits on the passenger side.

Only around five examples of the FS 372 were made.
