Many components of the successful Formula 1 car 250F were incorporated into the 300S. By so doing, Maserati created a sports car endowed with a lot of potentials. It immediately captured the attention of a long list of renowned race drivers and racing teams, who harnessed the car successfully in countless races. With such top drivers as Stirling Moss, Piero Taruffi, Harry Schell and Jean Behra behind the wheel of its 300S, the Maserati team won a great victory in the 1,000 km endurance race at the Nürburgring on May 27, 1956. Many more successes followed on famous race tracks around the world that year.
At a result, the 300S finished 2nd in the 1956 World Sportscar Championship. CMC has crafted an authentic replica of a 1956 300S original. This vehicle holds a very special place in the 300S lineage, because it is the only 300S that integrates a number of features and components rarely seen in other 300S units. In this exquisite set, CMC presents a Dirty Hero version of its 300S replica on a solid, high-quality base plate.
Also included in the miniature diorama are two figurines, a driver and a mechanic, in addition to a removed engine that is complete with aggregates, pipes and cabling. The miniature trophy model car of the year 2013 from the magazine MODELL Fahrzeug epitomizes the tribute that has been paid to the amazing model car by enthusiasts. This beautiful diorama comes with an acrylic top to keep it dust-free.
