"If I was a Maserati, a red 300S, I'd ride around to your house, baby. Give you a driving test." He is a long time owner and competitive driver of this gorgeous Maserati 300S. These were built between 1955 and 1958. Plagued by mechanical problems in its first season, it won at the Nurbergting in 1956 and finished 2nd overall in the FIA's World Sportscar Championship to the Maserati V12 450S. The 300S had a 3.0 liter straight 6 with 3 Weber carburetors producing 245bhp. 26 examples were produced.

This is CMC's mind-blowing model of this car.
