Singular Beauty

Whilst wandering around and getting lost in the Dark Forests of Internet Car-Dorkery, I stumbled on this vision, the Maserati A6/54 2000 Zagato Spyder:

It’s not too horrible from the rear, either:

And its interior is blissfully simple and devoid of modern geegaws, like airbags and seatbelts.

It was made in 1955, and even if you were to win the biggest lottery around, good luck finding it.¬† “It?”

They made one.  One.

  1. Good looking ride. Although I am thinking I want one of Toyota’s new Supra’s. That has some good curves and I might be able to afford it.

  2. It looks like it would be a lot of fun to drive, especially on a back country road.

    Unfortunately, because it’s the only one of its kind, who would chance it.

  3. I see many more Masers around these days than I did in times past. These are of the modern design, though, and can only be discerned from other wind tunnel cars by the trident on the grille.

    This spider is truly an automotive sculpture.

  4. Yeah, sure, but what kind of batteries and motor were available in 1955.

    I guess it is pretty — pretty dangerous, that is! — but unless the batteries are ‘up-graded’ to lithium, I pass.
    And what a dinosaur, no air-bags or other mandated safety equipment; only a suicidal maniac would consider operating something like that with everything we know about TheEnvironment© and Warmal Colding.
