The Maserati A6 1500 was a special vehicle for Maserati, not just because of its timeless beauty but was responsible for the company’s success in the years to come.
An exciting moment for Maserati occurred at the Geneva Salon in 1947, where the company introduced its first ever grand tourer as the first ever production road car Maserati ever made.
Maserati A6 were a series of grand tourers, racing cars and single seaters produced at Maserati in Italy between the years of 1947 and 1956.
Development of the Maserati A6 1500 began in 1941 by the Maserati brothers, it was halted as wartime production and was then completed after the war.
The design, due to the time of production, resembled some of the pre-war racing cars. It was breathtaking from every angle, and reached a new milestone of automotive design.
As mentioned above, the A6 1500 debuted at the Geneva Salon show in 1947 as the first prototype, that had included a two-door, two-seat, three window berlinetta with triple square portholes on its fully integrated front wings.
However, for production, Maserati decided to tone down the prototypes design by switching headlights to something more conventional of its time as well as adding a second window.
A 2+2 fastback style was incorporated in some of the later cars developed. Gradually, the Maserati A6 1500 was replaced by the next series AG6 2000.
This vehicle made a lot of history for Maserati, essentially helping the rise of success in the automobile industry.
