Chassis: 4502
The second Maserati 450S was sold to loyal American privateer entrant Tony Parravano, who helped bankroll the development of the 450S. Before he could race the car, we was prompted to flee the country to escape a federal warrant from the IRS. The brand new '4502' was eventually seized by the government and sold at auction in 1959. It was subsequently raced in some minor events but with little success. After changing hands several times, this 450S was in the ownership of a prominent German collector and historic racer since the mid-1990s. He is seen here in action during the 2002 Le Mans Classic. It was subsequently acquired by a fellow German, who also exercised it at select events. Passing into new, Swiss ownership again more recently, it was shown at the 2014 Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este, where it won Best in Class and was selected by the jury as Best of Show.
