Maserati A6G 2000 Frua Spider

This Frua-designed A6G Spider is one of the most beautiful Maseratis ever built.

A sporty white stripe on the bonnet, modest chromed trim, a somewhat angled grille and an accentuating kink in the front bumper. In 1956-1957 only fourteen Maseratis A6/2000 were given Frua bodywork, of which nine were built as Spiders.

The A6 was a great success for Maserati after the war. At first the car was fitted with a 1.5-litre engine, but it was later replaced with a two-litre. Both versions had a single overhead camshaft; however, this changed when the Ferrari and Alfa Romeo engineer, Gioacchino Colombo was appointed in 1954. Colombo started working on the six-cylinder and fitted the engine with a twin-cam cylinder head, larger carburettors and a dual ignition system. He thereby increased the engine’s maximum output to 140 hp, whereas the original 1947 engine produced only 65 hp. The engine of this Spider produces 160 hp.
