This Maserati model called 2000 Sport was a 2-seater road car but designed to compete in races. Known also by her technical name i.e. A6GCS*, this car couldn’t be sold directly by Maserati as they had some sought of understanding with Enzo Ferrari. So a Maseratri dealer from Rome by the name of Giuglielmo Dei purchased six of the chassis and gave Pininfarina four of them to be developed.
This car #66 sponsored by Maserati was driven world famous Argentinian Juan Manuel Fangio and Italian Sergio Mantovani and came 3rd at the Targa Florio race having a timing of 7:13:43:000.
* A6GCS stood for the following,
- A6 was a tribute to one of the brothers Alfieri Maserati
- G denoted the word ‘Ghisa’ or a cast-iron blockbuster
- CS meant Corsa and Sports.
