The 53 Barchetta Story
In 1953, when Maserati upgraded the earlier A6GCS with a new aerodynamic body designed by Medardo Fantuzzi, they produced what is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful classic sports cars of the era.
The 53barchetta recreates the potent stance and muscular aerodynamic lines of the original. Each is hand built with chassis and suspension faithful to the original, plus the added benefit of 50 years advance in auto-engineering technology applied to enhance key performance and safety features.
