1959 Maserati 450S recreation SOLD

The Maserati 450s was a hugely competitive car in its day and led the field by two minutes during its competition debut in the Buenos Aries 1000km, driven by Moss and Fangio until a minor fault with the gear linkage caused the car to retire. In the 1957 Mille Miglia, a 450S was the fastest car in the event but retired early with a faulty brake pedal. Whilst at the Nürburgring, Moss was enjoying a thirty-second lead when he was overtaken by his rear wheel after a half-shaft failure. Sadly, history will recall the 450S as a fabulous sports racer that failed to realise its full potential, seemingly always dogged by minor technical problems.

Chris Lawrence put a great deal of research into ways the car’s handling could be improved without losing the visceral qualities of the original. The ladder chassis was built using a jig from an original Maserati 450S chassis #4510, while the all aluminium body was likewise reproduced using bucks from #4510. Lawrence even replicated the correct oval section tubing for the chassis. By strengthening the chassis, improving steering and suspension and adding disc brakes he produced a real ‘driver’s car’.

This is essentially a car to enjoy and we imagine that its new owner will want to appreciate the evocative driving characteristics of this amazing, powerful, open-top, V8 Maserati, and with the wind in your hair and the bark from the side exhaust bouncing of the surrounding buildings, it wouldn’t be hard to narrow your eyes and be transported back to the Mille Miglia in 1957.
The car comes with accurate registration.
