The first generation of A6 made by Maserati marked the debut of the brand in the production of road cars, although the company was still heavily involved in the racing scene. The first series were successful enough for Maserati to plan an upgrade and the Maserati A6G succeeded to the first A6 model in 1951. The new car was based on the same simple yet robust chassis and featured a 6-cylinder engine with opposed valves and single overhead camshaft. Improvements were made on the suspension, handling, and power output. The new model featured leaf instead of coil springs for the rear suspension, the engine’s capacity increased from 1.5 to 2 liters and the power output from 65 to 100 hp. More body choices were available, with a coupe, a cabriolet, and special editions.
Only 16 Maserati A6G’s were made between 1951 and 1954, before the engine was upgraded to generate an increased power output and better compete with road going Ferraris. Being so rare, the 1953 Maserati A6 is a very attractive collector’s piece for enthusiasts nowadays.
