Maserati 1946



In early 1946 the engine, known as the 'A6TR' ('Testa Riportata'), was first used in a 'Barchetta' - a collaboration between Ernesto Maserati and engineer Alberto Massimino for a loyal customer, one Guido Barbieri. The Barchetta prototype, officially named the '6CS/46' but more commonly known as the 'A6 Sport', had a rather short motor sport career. The same can be said of another model constructed some months later and driven by 'Gigi' Villoresi in a few races without much success.
