Maserati is offering a tribute to Stirling Moss, who died recently at the age of 90, with a special prototype of the future MC20, the Italian supercar expected to take over from the current coupes.
What could be better for Maserati than to talk about his return to motor racing with a tribute to the one who drove the Eldorado. We are obviously not talking about the Cadillac extended sedan, but the trident single-seater driven in the late 1950s by Stirling Moss, at the "Trofeo dei due mondi", a race known rather by the name of the 500 miles of Monza.
Organized only in 1957 and 1958, the peculiarity of this race was to oppose "two worlds": the best American drivers to the best Europeans, on single-seater, in Monza. Unfortunately for European pilots, their rivals won both editions, but a certain Stirling Moss distinguished himself on the famous Maserati.
More than sixty years later, Maserati therefore unveils the images of a unique prototype of the new MC20 in tribute to the Eldorado. The very first European single-seater to be sponsored (by Eldorado)! The base was actually the 420M / 58, with its 4.2 V8 and its 750 kg.
With the MC20, the recipe will change radically, the V8 becoming a V6 developed internally by Maserati (and no longer an engine loaned by Ferrari). The presentation is approaching for this new generation of cars which will allow Maserati to return to competition.
