Talented artist Frederik Tjellesen wanted to imagine what a modern interpretation of the Maserati 250S topless racer would look like. And he came up with this sexy speedster.
The Maserati 250S is a very beautiful and unique race car of which only four examples were ever built. Configuration was essentially a twin cam, dry-sump four-cylinder engine with two 45 DCO3 Weber carburettors, five-speed manual gearbox, independent front suspension with coil springs, de Dion rear axle with transverse leaf spring, four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes, and steel tube frame. Wheelbase was 2,150 mm. Three of the four cars were powered by a 2.0 litre engine while one was powered by a 2.5-litre four cylinder engine producing 235 Hp.
The 250S was raced by legendary drivers like Jim Hall and Carroll Shelby back in the 1950s.
