In 1955, Maserati moved to supplant its A6GS sports hustling autos with another auto called the 200S, later the 200SI. In 1957, they redesigned the 200SI with a greater motor and re-initiated it the 250S. Just four were constructed. This is one of them. The motor is a 2.5-liter twin cam straight-four making 253 torque. They were extended variants of the 2.0liter from the 200SI and they were speedy autos speedier than the Ferrari V12s they went up against at an early stage. Be that as it may, the project was drop when Maserati surrendered hustling after 1957. The smooth body is by Fantuzzi.
Probably the most splendid and venerated pure bloods to rise up out of Maserati’s steady amid the 1950s were the organization’s four-barrel sports racers, which appeared in 1955. Like Porsche, Maserati observed that the 1.5-liter games auto class needed noteworthy rivalry from any makers other than OSCA, so the Tipo 53 undertaking was charged using the 4CF2 motor, which uprooted just shy of 1,500 cubic centimeters. At the appropriate time, the engine was expanded to dislodge two liters for the succeeding 200S and 200SI models, and however both autos indicated much guarantee in their duels with Ferrari’s TRCs, Maserati was progressively distracted with its 300S six-chamber games racer.
In 1958 the motor was made greater (2.5 liters) and the auto was named as 250S. The auto scored a reverberating triumph with Stirling Moss in the driver’s seat amid the 1956 Trofeo Supercortemaggiore.
