Luigi Musso (Roma, 28 july 1924 - Reims, 6 july 1958) was a famous Italian racing driver. He made his debut in 1953 at the Gran Premio d'Italia driving a Maserati. In 1955 he joined the Ferrari team, entering into a fierce rivalry with Mike Hawthorn and Peter Collins, which boosted the performance of the team, but also encouraged greater risk-taking. In 1957 he achieved his best career result by finishing third in the drivers' standings. According to Musso's fiancée, he was deep in debt by the time of the lucrative 1958 French Grand Prix, where he was fatally injured, somersaulting into a ditch while chasing Hawthorn.

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