1956 Maserati 300S Sports Car by CMC

Post by tezza43 on Wed 12 Mar 2014, 2:35 pm

This is my 1:18 scale diecast 1956 Maserati 300S by German manufacturer CMC. It is a magnificent example of the art of miniature model engineering and would be hard to improve on. The Maserati was raced in Australia at the 1956 Australian Tourist Trophy race held at Albert Park, Melbourne. Stirling Moss won the race with another Maserati 300S driven by Jean Behra coming second. After the race the Stirling Moss car was purchased by Aussie driver Doug Whiteford. The 300S had a twin OHC double plug inline six and three Weber carbs, giving out around 250bhp. The lightweight aluminium bodied Maserati was a sensational performer for its day. I was fortunate enough to see it in action on that day (1956) when I was just 13 years old.
