The 1953 Maserati A6GCS/53 Pininfarina Berlinetta available on Simraceway:
Belonging to Maserati’s extended A6 family, the Maserati A6GCS/53 was a two-seater primarily developed to contest the World Sportscar Championship. Of the 52 vehicles produced, the stars of the show were undoubtedly the four Berlinettas styled by automotive designer extraordinaire Pininfarina, which are now widely viewed as the most beautiful Maseratis ever to grace the road.
However autophiles could just have easily been robbed of their splendor because, despite strong demand for a Pininfarina-designed Berlinetta body for the A6GCS/53 from gentlemen racers whose roadsters had exposed them to the inclement elements of the 1952 Mille Miglia, Maserati wasn’t able to commission the company directly due to its partnership with Ferrari. Instead, the marque supplied six bare chassis to Rome-based Maserati dealer, Giuglielmo Dei, and he commissioned the designer directly.
Based on the race-bred chassis built by Gilco, the rear-wheel drive A6GCS/53 was powered by one of the last units to be designed by the Maserati brothers before they left the manufacturer—a Formula Two-derived 170-bhp 2.0-liter, short-stroke, twin-cam straight-six with dual-plug ignition, capable of almost 150 mph.To drive the ultimate Pinin pin-up, buy the Maserati A6GCS/53 Pininfarina Berlinetta today on Simraceway.
