Aurelio Lampredi (16 June 1917 – 1 June 1989) was an Italian automobile and aircraft engine designer. Born in Livorno, he began his career at Piaggio, makers of the Vespa scooter, but quickly moved up to larger engines. He worked at Isotta Fraschini before World War II, and then joined Reggiane to design aircraft engines. Lampredi's fame brought him to Ferrari in 1946 where he designed large displacement V12 family of engines (the "Lampredi engine"). After Ferrari, Lampredi went to Fiat, where he oversaw that company's engine design efforts until 1977. It was at Fiat where he designed the famous Fiat Twin-Cam and SOHC engines.

We'll publish a biography on him on the occasion of his anniversary or when it will be reached a sufficient number of cars.
