The Maserati 150 GT Spider is an emerge vehicle and is not at all like any Maserati ever fabricated. The verifiable background of this vehicle backpedals to May of 1954, when the Maserati producing plant bunch gave Luigi Musso another A6GCS for the XXI Mille Miglia. The A6GCS passed on casing number 2043, the same unmistakable verification as the auto that he hustled all through the 1953 season.
Taking prompts from the 4CTF single-seat race auto, Vittorio Bellentani formed the 4-barrel engine with bleeding edge segments, for instance, dry-sump oil, an aluminum composite square with cast iron liners and choices, for instance, a hemispherical smoldering chamber with a 80º figured valves and twin-connection ignition.
The 150GT casing was sent to Fantuzzi to be bodied in a style such as the Pietro Frua A6G cabriolets. Unprecedented to the diagram are accent dashes that continue running between the point of convergence of the fire cook and the front signs. Additionally, the side exhaust and right-hand drive plan knowledge at the auto’s earlier life as a racecar.
Maserati simply made one copy of the 150GT going before moving onto the creation 3500GT. Once in a while this model roadster is insinuated as a 1500GT which would look good given the lineage.
