Count Carlo Felice Trossi (27 April 1908 – 9 May 1949) was an Italian racecar driver and auto constructor.
Trossi backed one of the most unusual Grand Prix cars, the Trossi-Monaco of 1935. This car featured a 16-cylinder, two-stroke cycle, two-row radial, air-cooled engine and an aircraft-like body designed by Augusto Monaco. The car was a spectacular failure and never raced in a Grand Prix event.
He had many exciting hobbies: racing boats and airplanes in addition to cars. Count Felice Trossi was also the president of the Scuderia Ferrari in 1932. Enzo Ferrari said of him "He was a great racer but never wanted to make the effort to reach a dominant position" and I remember him with emotion since he was one of the first to believe in my scuderia of which he was a part".
Trossi was born in Biella, Italy. Due to a brain tumor, he died in Milan at only 41 years of age.
