This Gorgeous 1956 Maserati A6G/2000 Berlinetta Zagato Is Set for Auction

One of only 21.

By //Automotive

Set for the RM Sotheby’s Monterey sale is an extremely rare Maserati A6G/2000 Zagato Berlinetta from 1956. Originally intended for racing, the A6G/2000 was completely hand-built at the time, requiring the coachbuilders at Zagato to hand-hammer each of its aluminum panels. Powered by an alloy 2-liter, inline-six engine, this particular A6G/2000 has over 7000 hours invested in its restoration, due to the current owner’s desire to win “best in class” at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este — which is a title this classic car now holds.

What also makes this car even more desirable to collectors is that each component is completely original, and the chassis, engine, and gearbox all possess matching numbers. As David Swig of Sotheby’s puts it, “this is one of only a very small handful, 4 or 5 of these cars, that has always retained its original engine and gearbox.”

More information can be found over at the RM Sotheby’s auction site, where it is estimated to sell for $4,250,000 – $5,250,00 USD.
