Chassis: 2124
Completed in March of 1956, this example was retained by Maserati and first served as the exhibition and demonstration car for Maserati's Milan distributor. Among the car's unique features was the ornamented grille that was fitted to none of the other Zagato bodied A6G/2000s. Shortly after being delivered, it was loaned to privateer racer Luigi Tramazzo to compete in the Mille Miglia. Unfortunately, Tramazzo slid off the road in very wet conditions and the car had to be returned to the factory for repairs. With the repairs completed, the car was sold to its first private owner in 1956. This was successful gentleman racer and hotelier Antoine Cicoira, who would race the car with considerable success in a wide variety of events. A subsequent owner damaged the car on the road and it was repaired once more by the factory in 1960. Chassis 2124 then disappeared from the public eye for nearly two decades as it was hidden away in a French garage. It was sold to a French enthusiast and was regularly raced and featured in magazines through to the early 1990s. Following a spell in Spanish ownership, it was acquired by an American collector. He had the car comprehensively restored by Steel Wings in Pennsylvania with Epifani Restorations taking car of the engine. The work was completed in time for the 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance where Maserati's 100th anniversary was celebrated. It placed second in class, while a year later it won its class at Villa d'Este. In 2018, it was consigned to the RM Sotheby's Monterey auction.
