In 1956, Vittorio Stanguellini built two 1100cc sport racecars and two 750cc cars with a body design by Franco Reggiani and built by Compana. This is one of the two 1100cc cars. It was shipped to the USA in 1957 where it was purchased by Carl Kiekhaefer, owner of Mercury Outboard in Wisconsin. The other 1100cc car stayed in Italy, winning the 1957 Italian National Championship 1100cc class that year.

This car was entered in the 1958 Sebring 12-Hour and finished 21st overall driven by Carl Haas and Alan Ross, finishing 4th in class behind three new Lotus 11 cars. The car continued to be raced until 1990. It has just completed an extensive restoration.
