Some sources believe that 0406MD was rebodied in 1954 into an one-off Spyder by Scaglietti with the results mentioned below. Others claim these results for 0302TF and some regard 0404MD as the car in question. As a matter of fact 0406MD was rebodied by Scaglietti in the 50's. But this mysterious car appeared at the 12h of Casablance in December 1953 for the first time, and therefore too early to be 0404MD or 0406MD.
