Carrozzeria Sports Cars was a carrozzeria in Modena, Italy, founded by one-time Formula One driver, Piero Drogo. Piero was born in Northern Italy in Vignale Monferrato, a small town near the city of Alessandria in Piedmont on August 8th, 1926. His family immigrated to Venezuela and Drogo began racing in Venezuela in the 1950s. He raced extensively across the South American continent in sports cars and in the road races. At the end of the fifties he returned to Italy and found a job as a mechanic at Stanguellini in Modena. In the sixties he established Carrozzeria Sports Cars in Modena. He quickly began taking on small sports car and racing body orders from the manufacturers in that city.

His bodies were used by Scuderia Serenissima and Bizzarrini, and his occasional work for Ferrari brought him much fame. Especially the Ferraris Dino 206 SP, 330 P4 and 250 GT SWB 'Breadvan' are valuable masterpieces.

On the 28th of April 1973 Piero Drogo died by an accident in his Ferrari.
