Red With Black Interior
In order to compete in theprestigious World Sportscar Championship series, Maserati introduced and developed theA6GCS from 1953 – 1955.
Initially designed as Spyders by Colombo, the A6 evolved with variants refined by Fantuzzi, Fiandri, Vignale and Pininfarina.
At the 1954Mondial de l’AutomobileinParis, Maserati presented theA6GCS/54, inBerlinetta,BarchettaandSpydervariations.
To this day, the A6GCS remains a very important model to legacy of Maserati due to its immediate racing success. Maserati won numerous races with the A6GCS, including the 1953 Mille Miglia (1st and 2nd in class, 3rd overall), against brutal competition from the Ferrari and Mercedes factory teams. From 1953 - 1955 the A6GCS also had documented success at the Targa Florio, Pescara, as well as several other races in Italy, South America, the UK, and the US.
In total less than 50 Spyders were built between 1953 and 1955. All were originally delivered with A 1985cc aluminum block, overhead twin cam, twin plug engine producing approximately 170 horse power. As time went on, most of the competition driven A6GCS’s experienced multiple engine changes and subsequent modifications. Often, American derived power plants were used to replace the expired 2.0 liter Maserati units.
It is rare that an A6GCS comes to the market, so it is very speculative to state todays market value. In 2013, a nearly identical looking A6GCS was auctioned off by RM Sotheby’s were it failed to reach its pre-sale estimate of 3.5 million dollars after the spirited bidding ended with a no sale offer of $2,200,000 US Dollars.
The vehicle offered here is a beautiful and fascinating hand crafted recreation. It has a tube frame chassis, an aluminum semi-monocoque, and a fiberglass body. It is powered by an aluminum 4.5 litre V8 fed by 4 downdraft Webers, producing an intoxicating growl from its dual side exhaust.
It does not matter if you are in to parking your car on the concourse lawn or taking it for a spirit drive on track day, you will have a very difficult time finding a better bang for the buck.
It is no secret that the market values of quality recreations continue to go up, and the availability of quality turn-key examples continues to dissipate. This car represents a fantastic value, and would be a gorgeous addition to any car collection.
