Maserati 4CLT are single-seat hustling autos that were outlined and worked by Maserati. The 4CL was presented toward the start of the 1939 season, as an opponent to the Alfa Romeo 158 and different ERA models in the voiturette class of global Grand Prix engine hustling. In spite of the fact that dashing stopped amid World War II, the 4CL was one of the front running models at the resumption of hustling in the late 1940s. Explores different avenues regarding two-stage supercharging and tubular undercarriage development in the long run prompted the presentation of the modified 4CLT model in 1948. The 4CLT was relentlessly redesigned and overhauled over the accompanying two years, bringing about a definitive 4CLT/50 model, presented for the inaugural year of the Formula One World Championship in 1950. In the prompt post-war period, and the initial two years of the Formula One class, the 4CLT was the auto of decision for some privateer contestants, prompting various samples being included in many races amid this period.
The primary variation of the 4CLT earned its “Sanremo” epithet from the main race for which it was entered: the 1948 Sanremo Grand Prix. The name stuck, as Alberto Ascari took his 4CLT to triumph in its lady race appearance. An omen of things to come, Villoresi and Reg Parnell won five of the 1948 season’s remaining races. In the primary year of the Formula One World Championship, a Sanremo scored what was to be the Maserati’s best Championship complete, when Louis Chiron took third place at his home Grand Prix: the 1950 Monaco Grand Prix. The last 4CL variation to contend in the World Championship was a 4CLT/48 adjusted by the Arzani-Volpini group, that neglected to try and fit the bill for the 1955 Italian Grand Prix.
