Maserati produced the achingly pretty 300S for the 1956 and 1957 World Sportscar Championship. The car was not only beautiful in the flesh but effective too. It was competitive with the best sports cars of its class, rivaling Ferrari, Jaguar, and Mercedes-Benz. The vehicle incorporated many components of the successful Maserati 250F, but updates included a larger engine, a space frame structure, and an elongated nose to reduce air resistance. The result was a relatively light and nimble yet immensely powerful vehicle that captured the attention of talented drivers and top racing teams. Renowned drivers such as Stirling Moss, Piero Taruffi, Harry Schell and Jean Behra drove the race car and lead the Maserati team to many victories. One of the highlights was its victory in the 1,000 km endurance race in May of 1956 in Nürburgring; they left their competitors in the dust. The 300S finished 2nd overall in the 1956 World Sportscar Championship. Not only was the vehicle a big hit on the race track but it was Maserati's greatest financial success on the sales floor as well. To this day, it remains one of the finest handling front-engined sports cars.

The Maserati 300S CMC Model Car is authentically evocative of the 1956 300S original and will certainly enrich any collection.
