Estimated at $4.25 million to $5.25 million
The term “time capsule” is overused when describing particularly exquisite restorations, but that idiom seems to apply to this truly unique Maserati. One of only 21 examples built, it was the factory’s entry into the 1956 Mille Miglia endurance race. This Zagato-bodied beauty features a wonderfully aerodynamic silver body—hammered out of lightweight alloy—and an elegant blue interior that manages to combine race-bred purposefulness with a touch of luxury.
After decades on the vintage circuit, this A6G/2000 recently was treated to an $800,000 restoration that saw no nut go untouched. The result was dual accolades in 2015—first in class at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este and second in class at Pebble Beach.
“Someone really did their homework when restoring this car,” says Duff. “Only a (Maserati) Birdcage might be more unique, but that’s a pure racing car.” Buying this coachbuilt Italian icon not only means garage bragging rights but also virtually guaranteed entry into some of the best vintage racing events in the world.
