Maserati A6 GCS

Styled by Pininfarina the Maserati A6 GCS was visually stunning, but it was so much more underneath.

Within the skin of this car is a race-bred chassis, built by Gilco. Developed initially for Formula 2 the A6 could rev an impressive 7300 revolutions per minute and produce 170 break horse power.

The Maserati A6GCS/53 was manufactured between 1953 and 1955. 52 were built.
