Unique Piece Of History: 1956 Maserati 450S Prototype By Fantuzzi

This outrageously cool car was driven by the legendary driver Stirling Moss, along with Denis Jenkinson as navigator in the 1956 Mille Miglia 1,000-mile race. Unfortunately they experienced a brake failure and the car came to rest against a tree. But that’s when Fantuzzi came in to picture , redesigning the body and modifying the wheelbase in order to accommodate the new V-8 engine. The restoration of the 1956 Maserati 450S was finished in 1987, and after that, this unique piece of history was rarely driven.
