This new model of one of the first Maseratis will be made using brass and copper and will be completely scratch-built.
The Tipo 26 was introduced by the Maserati brothers in 1926 to compete in Grand Prix racing. The following year they brought out a 2-litre version, the Tipo 26B, for use in open-road racing, as it didn't comply with the 1.5-litre maximum for GP racing in that period. The car made its debut at the 1927 Targa Florio, driven by Alfieri Maserati, finishing 3rd overall.
More information including new photos will be available soon. The work-in-progress will be on display at Retromobile 2019.
