1955 Maserati A6/54 Coupe by Frua s/n 2181

This A6/54 by Frua is one of just two Series III cars ever built and is believed to be the only surviving example. Documented with two binders full of information and optimally restored to factory-correct standards, chassis number 2181 was accepted and presented at the 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, where the Maserati Centennial was being celebrated as a highlight theme. The A6G did not disappoint, winning its class (Maserati Centennial Coachwork).  

This rare Maserati Chassis #2181 was fully restored by Bacchelli & Villa in 2007.
