CMC Maserati 300S Engine with showcase
It is not without reason that the Maserati 300S was one of the most successful sports racing cars of its time.
Much of its success is attributable to its sinewy engine, which is similar to the famous Formula 1 engine of the Maserati 250F in many ways. Thanks to its powerful drive, J.M. Fangio raced his 250F to the 1957 World Championship. This led Stirling Moss and several other famous race drivers to put their faith in the 300S 3-litre 6-cylinder engine. Apart from a number of top finishes, the 300S won the famous 1,000 km endurance race at the Nürburgring in 1956.
