Among Maserati’s historic automotive catalog, there are only a few standout platforms that steal the show quite like the fabled A6GCS. Though most of the track-faring vehicles have been stowed far away from the penetrating eyes of the public, every so often, a prime example decides to show its face — such is the case with this beautifully kept 1954 variant.
The 1954 A6GCS you’re seeing now has a storied history in rally and event use, serving as a factory team car (chassis 2078, to be exact) for Maserati’s racing division in its early days. Over the past two decades, the vehicle has graced a number of tracks throughout the U.S. and Europe and has spent a significant amount of time in South America and Italy, taking to the blacktop for events such as the Mille Miglia. Following an extensive restoration in 2013, the A6GCS would compete in the following year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, earning the coveted Grand Turismo Award in the process. The impeccably kept “gentleman’s racer” is being listed via RM Sotheby’s for an “estimated” $3,250,000 — but you’ll have to keep an eye on the docket for Monterey’s upcoming auction to secure an exact price.
