As a result of the success of their A6 series, Maserati decided to up the stakes by producing a vehicle to compete directly against the most current Sports Racing Ferraris.
Using their 250F Grand Prix car as a starting point, a new 3.5-liter, 240-260bhp, twin-cam six was developed. An extremely clever, compact, rear-mounted transaxle was utilized, as was a deDion rear axle assembly which dramatically reduced un-sprung weight on the rear wheels.
Brakes were also developed from the 250F and as such were a marvel of ingenuity. They also sat far inboard from the wheels which greatly aided in their cooling.
