    Fangio nevertheless showed he was still the fastest man in Formula 1 even though he was already 45 years old at the time. In , was returned to the works, where it was rebuilt and renumbered before being given to the Biscaretti Museum in Turin, where it remains to this day. The F was awarded legendary status following its success on the circuit and was considered to be one of the greatest and most beautiful single seater Grand Prix racing cars to have ever been built, with its fine handling and powerful six cylinder engine; a competitive car, even today in historic Grand Prix car events. Resplendent in its traditional red paint, it is offered ready to provide its new owner with either the thrill of campaigning a legend in historic racing competition or the satisfaction of showing arguably the finest Maserati single-seater extant in concours events around the world. These Cameron Millar cars were so exacting in their detail that the FIA granted them eligibility to race alongside the original cars and contemporary machines in competitive historic racing events.

    Designed for the 2. A simple tubular frame carried the suspension, aluminium body panels and engine. The front suspension was independent by wishbones and coil springs. The Maserati F raced four seasons strong and came up with 8 championship victories. It remains as one of the last front engined grand prix cars. Much of this work focused on the shape of the body, reflecting an ever growing emphasis on reducing drag. Chief engineer Giulio Alfieri also spent a considerable amount of time devising a fuel injection system for the twin-cam straight six.

    Another experiment was the off-set installation of the engine in the chassis, which allowed the prop-shaft to run alongside the driver. This in turn allowed the seat to be mounted considerably lower. Another two victories in showed that progress indeed was made but with the return of Fangio to the Maserati ranks in , more even drastic improvements were needed. An all-new multi-tubular space-frame chassis was laid down.

    It followed the same lines but was considerably lighter and stronger than the much more conventional original. The double wishbone front and DeDion axle rear suspension were carried over. Despite the advent of the more efficient disc brakes, Alfieri stuck to drums. These were, however, of a fresh design with improved stopping power and cooling characteristics. In addition to the new lightweight chassis, Alfieri also devised a new engine in Very much a clean-sheet design, this was a sophisticated V12 engine with twin overhead camshafts.

    These were driven by a series of gears from the front of the engine. As was common on Maserati engines of the day, a twin spark ignition system was fitted. The 24 plugs were fed by two massive magnetos driven by the gears at the front of the engine and 24 individual coils. An engineering work of art, the 2. That was a whole 50 bhp more than the straight six. With the V12 still under development, the Maserati team started the season with the heavily revised F equipped with the straight six engine.

    The tried and tested unit proved more than powerful enough to fight off the rivals that included the ailing Ferrari team and very impressive British Vanwall team. Fangio nevertheless showed he was still the fastest man in Formula 1 even though he was already 45 years old at the time. Early tests, in an older chassis, showed that the power delivery was nothing short of brutal. During the summer three T2 chassis were built specifically for the V12 engine and one was ready in time for the final Grand Prix of the year; the all-important Italian Grand Prix at Monza.

    Thanks to a redesigned gearbox, the V12 could be mounted off-set in the T2 chassis. The new car could be easily recognised because of the two bumps on the very low body-work that were needed to clear the carburettors. Behind the wheel of the V12 F Frenchman Jean Behra impressed during the early stages of the race but he was forced to pit to replace the rear tyres, which were not quite capable of enduring the bhp for too long.

    Sadly Behra later had to retire with lubrication problems from what had been a promising debut. There would be no second chance for the V12 engined F as a cash-strapped Maserati retired from international racing at the end of the season.

    The surviving Fs were sold to privateers either with the familiar straight six engine or without an engine altogether. It was not the end of the line for the V12 engine itself as it would go on to be used in various sports cars and ultimately in the back of a Cooper F1 car in three litre form.

    In this guise it would score two Grand Prix victories nearly a decade after it was first introduced. See more Maserati cars and Maserati news. See full Maserati F Gallery here.
