Between 1947 and 1956 Italian company Maserati, developed the Maserati A6G 2000 series of grand tourers, racing sports cars and single seaters.
The A6G54 was Maserati’s only dual-purpose road/race car made in series production.
After it became successful on the race track Maserati redesigned the model as a road-going sports car, suitable for increased development.
It was a high performance 2 litre sport chassis, fitted with bodies from some of the best Italian design houses.
Zagato sculpted the bodies out of aluminium into a flowing shape. There were a total of 19 coupes developed by Zagato.
Most of the AG6 2000 Zagato models were fit for racing. They used a lightweight construction method, where the body was built by hand in aluminium.
Vignale and Frua created some amazing examples on the A6G54 chassis with absolutely lavish bodies.
However these bodies and exceptional interiors took too long to complete, so Maserati turned to Allemano who made a series of pedestrian coupes.
In 1957, Maserati eventually took over responsibility of building its A6 2000’s own bodies.
The beautiful and rare car was auctioned at Gooding & Company in 2013, and the 1955 Maserati A6G 2000 Berlinetta was sold for an amazing $1,650,000 million!
