Undoubtedly one of the most gorgeous cars ever built, the Maserati A6GC was derived from Maserati’s A6 sports car, with a short-stroke, high revving in-line 6, and was one of the last designs done by the Maserati brothers before they left the company to form OSCA.
Stuck in a contract dispute with Ferrari, the Maserati brothers couldn’t directly sell their cars to clients, but did an end-around by selling 6 bare chassis to Rome dealer Giugliemo Dei, who had the cars bodied and finished by Pininfarina.
Originally developed for Formula 2, the cars never made a real impact in motor racing, but are now hugely famous for their sheer beauty.
Only four cars were ever built, but two were later converted to spyders.
- 170 HP
- 7300 RPM’s
- Top Speed: 140 mph
If I had to choose between this and a 250 GTO, I would take the Maserati, pocket the difference, and happily sit in my garage just staring at this car…
