A special specimen of Maserati is about to be displayed at a Gooding & Co. auction. One of just 21 created–this 1956 Maserati A6G/2000 with Allemano coachwork will make a fine addition to any collection of exotic cars.
This Maserati A6G/2000 was tucked away in Pennsylvania for the past three decades. These obsolete coachbuilt models obviously do not hit the luxury auto market often, making this a special event indeed.
The Maserati A6G/2000 at a glance:
- This model made its grand debut as a road car with racing attributes, a concept that was relatively new in that decade.
- The A6G/2000 stemmed from the A6GCS racing brood.
- The racing systems incorporated into the road versions included suspension, steering, brakes and an aluminum twin-cam 6-cylinder engine mated to a 4-speed gearbox.
Coachbuilders Zagato and Frua also developed their own versions of the Maserati A6G/2000. The Zagato version was clearly race-inspired, while the Frua car teetered more on the luxe side with upscale styling and a larger cabin for occupants. Different design houses take their own approaches, and the results are uniquely stamped by their signature cues.
Overall, the Allemano Maserati A6G/2000 enjoyed an exclusive production run of just 21 units. There were just 60 Maserati A6G/2000 chassis made for coachbuilders to craft. How much will this specimen net at auction? It will certainly be interesting to see if the sale price is shocking.
