Tipo 64 Prova Modena 1962


After Cooper's trials of a rear-engined car, Maserati created its first model adopting this technology, the Tipo 63 in 1961 to stay in the race.

It kept the 4-cylinder engine of the Tipo 61, a Birdcage architecture which allowed a 4th place at the 24 hours of Le Mans 1961.

The Tipo 64 is the evolution of the Tipo 63, with a modified chassis and running gear and above all the adoption of the V12 from the 250F. With its streamlined body and contained weight, it reached 320 km/h!

The model presented here is the one tested in January 1962 by Guerino Bertocchi at the Modena autodrôme, before delivery to the Briggs Cunningham team, with unpainted bodywork and a false aluminum windshield called "Supercage".
