"Fiat Abarth 750 Zagato Give a tiny Fiat chassis the Zagato bodywork treatment and a tuned engine and tweaked running gear from Mr Abarth. What more could you want from a pocket rocket for the fifties? Post war Italian austerity gets "
Maserati 250 S
It’s difficult not to make a fetich out of mid-fifties racing car design. I mean, just look at the carnally gorgeous lines and the immaculate finish of this 1957 Maserati 250 S.
With clear reference to Jag-D type all conquering design: this Maserati has been immaculately restored to better than original, ready for auction at RM this September.
Apparently just a handful of these cars were made for customers in the mid fifties – including US racing hero Carroll Shelby. The 250 S was a more powerful version of the road going 200S – and featured an inline six cylinder engine that could produce 250 Horsepower and a top speed for the car of around 160 MPH.
Pricing and reserve etc hasn’t been released yet – but think Central London mansion house prices. Perchance to dream.
