This one-off 5000 GT was styled for the great Briggs S. Cunningham by Giovanni Michelotti. The original brief had been to create a car that was as close to the 450 S sports racer but instead Michelotti designed a thoroughly modern Grand Tourer with an airy greenhouse, chrome details and most obvious of all, covered headlights. Michelotti was aided during the design process by the Turin university wind tunnel and this unique design was reportedly the most slippery of all fitted to the 5000 GT chassis. Using Michelotti's design, the very aerodynamic body was built by Vignale. Cunningham insisted on a test drive at Monza to ensure its performance was up to his standards. After giving his stamp of approval, Cunningham used the car on the road in Europe to travel between the circuits his team was competing at.

After his team was dismantled, Cunningham brought the 5000 GT to California. It was then acquired by Oliver Kuttner, who would own the car through to 1988 when it returned to Europe. Here it was completely restored during the early 1990s. Following a spell in Polish ownership, it was acquired by Alfredo Brenner. He is well known to have owned more Maserati 5000 GTs than any other individual. When he sold the car on to the next custodians, he confirmed the performance credentials by stating it was the fastest 5000 GT he owned. Rarely seen in public in recent years and with 66,693 miles on the odometer, it was consigned to the 2017 RM Sotheby's Monterey auction.
