Maserati Eldorado

THE

60TH

MASERATI CELEBRATES ANNIVERSARY OF THE “ELDORADO”

Some cars have gone down in history for legendary wins, for the innovations they introduced or for the drivers who piloted them to glory. Others, meanwhile, have become veritable icons for what they represented: a unique story; a turning point in history; a social phenomenon; an event that rippled beyond the stands of the race track to ultimately define an era. One such case was the Maserati “Eldorado”, which became famous in 1958 as the first singleseater car in Europe to be sponsored by a brand not linked to the world of motorsport. The brand in question was Eldorado, an ice-cream manufacturer. This was the first example of modern sponsorship, where the car was painted in the colours of the partner company, abandoning the traditional colour assigned to each country by the International Federation. This was a real revolution for the day, of vital importance to the future of motorsport, which from that moment on opened its doors to new financial backers. Maserati was commissioned to build the car by Gino Zanetti, owner of the Eldorado ice-cream company. Determined to promote his brand on the international stage, Zanetti turned to the House of the Trident to create a single-seater car to compete in the “Trofeo dei due Mondi” (Race of Two Worlds) at Monza: the Automobile Club d'Italia had organised a 500 Mile race at the circuit based on the Indianapolis 500, with top American drivers lining up alongside Europe’s cream of the crop. The Maserati 420/M/58, chassis number 4203, was thus finished with a cream coloured livery, instead of Italian racing red. The name Eldorado was emblazoned in bold black lettering along the sides of the car, with two additional smaller logos on the nose and below the small deflector that acted as a windshield. The logo with the face of the smiling cowboy was positioned in the centre of the nose and on the sides of the rear fin.

Below the two Eldorado brands on the sides, in bright racing red was “Italia”, denoting the nationality of the sponsor as well as that of the racing car manufacturer. The long silhouette of the “Eldorado” also bore the name of the driver chosen to race it in the “Monzanapolis”: Stirling Moss, one of the greatest drivers in the history of motor sports, and a former Maserati driver. The previous year, in 1957, the Modena-based manufacturer had won the Formula 1 World Championship with Juan Manuel Fangio, before deciding to withdraw from competitive racing and build racing cars on commission only for private customers, also providing them with assistance. This was precisely the ideal situation that Zanetti was seeking, and the reason why the Italian entrepreneur turned to Maserati. In the space of a few months, the engineer Giulio Alfieri created the “Eldorado”. The engine, derived from the V8 unit mounted in the 450S twin cam models, had its displacement reduced to 4,190 cc, generating 410 hp at 8,000 rpm; both the engine and transmission were offset to the left by nine centimetres. The aim of this decision was to ensure a more balanced weight distribution, taking into account the anti-clockwise direction of travel on the high banked corners at Monza. The gearbox had just two speeds while the De Dion rear axle had no differential. The tubular chassis was derived from that of the highly successful 250F, although it proved oversized compared to the latter, also as a result of numerous reinforcements introduced to enable the car to withstand the mechanical stress generated by the concrete track at Monza. To reduce the weight, Halibrand magnesium wheels were used along with Firestone 18-inch braided tread tyres inflated with helium. With these measures, the car weighed in at 1,671 lbs. The aluminium bodywork, hand crafted by Fantuzzi, was characterised by an aerodynamic

vertical fin behind the cockpit and a front carburetor scoop. On 29th June 1958, at the Monza track, the race was held in three heats to decide the final points table. This strategy was aimed at enticing European car manufacturers to enter their own cars, which had not originally been designed to compete in such a long race, and one that was so mechanically arduous. In the first heat Moss finished 4th. In the second he crossed the line 5th. In the final heat, however, his steering broke and the Maserati slammed into the guard-rail, dashing the English driver’s hopes of finishing the race in third place overall. Taking into account the three heats and the total number of laps completed, Moss nonetheless took seventh place in the end. He walked away unscathed from the crash and, all things considered, the “Eldorado” too suffered only limited damage, proving the value of its solid structure. Despite the success in terms of spectator numbers and entertainment value, the 500 Miles of Monza did not become a regular event on the racing calendar. Based on the findings from the race, the “Eldorado” was modified by the Gentilini bodywork shop, which removed the rear fin and reduced the

20

hood scoop, after which the car was entered in the Indianapolis 500 in 1959. This time it was finished in red, the colour denoting Italy in competitions, but still emblazoned with the Eldorado sponsor’s name in white lettering on the sides, as well as the cowboy logo in a white circle on the nose and tail. The inexperience of the gentleman-driver, Ralph Liguori, meant that the car failed to qualify, as it set the 36th fastest time, with only the first 33 qualifying. With a professional driver behind the wheel, it would have been a very different result. But that is a whole other story. The Indy 500 race was dear to Maserati, which took victory in 1939 and 1940 with the driver Wilbur Shaw behind the wheel of an 8CTF. Shaw almost made it a hat-track in 1941, but was forced to withdraw during the penultimate lap while out in front, victory denied by a broken wheel. Maserati is the only Italian car manufacturer to have won on the Indiana race track and the only European brand to have triumphed on two consecutive occasions. The Maserati “Eldorado”, perfectly restored in its original white livery, is part of the Panini Collection, housed in Modena.

Maserati Eldorado

Even though officially withdrawn from racing, Maserati was commissioned by ice cream company Eldorado Sud in 1958 for a car to compete in the second edition of the Race of Two Worlds. This 500-mile race was organised in an attempt to bring the European and American racing cultures together again, and the renewed Monza track with its highspeed oval was the ideal location for the event that hosted American single-seaters in Europe. Maserati purpose-built the 420M/58, often simply called the Eldorado after its sponsor, for this race. The engine was derived from the unit used in the 450S sports car, with its capacity reduced to 4.2 litres to meet the Indycar technical regulations. Equipped with four twin-choke Webers, it produced so much power and torque that a two-speed gearbox sufficed; first gear was only used to take off from the pits. The final drive was solid and the typical Borrani wire wheels where replaced by Hallibrand alloys to cope with the high cornering forces typical of oval racing. The Eldorado used a modified version

of the 250F chassis, in which the engine was offset to the left to improve balance when driving on a banking. A vertical stabilising fin was added, no luxury given its top speed of more than 222 mph. Maserati’s former works driver Stirling Moss was signed up for the job, and even though the Americans had again the upper hand, he proved to be the quickest of the European entries. Unfortunately, the steering broke at 155 mph and Moss was lucky to walk away unhurt from what he later described as the scariest motor racing accident of his career. The damaged car was rebuilt in the view of entering it in the 1959 Indy 500 race. Its body was modified and finished in red but still sporting the Eldorado sponsoring. The car was shipped to the U.S.A. and entered privately by Eldorado Racing. Sadly, problems related to fuel pick-up prevented it from qualifying for the race. The car was later fully restored to its original condition and is today part of the Umberto Panini Collection.

21ST BONHAMS QUAIL LODGE AUCTION IS AUGUST 24 by David M. Brown Six extraordinary motorcars –– a 1962 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta, 1948 Talbot-Lago, three pre-war Bentleys and a 1911 Mercedes — lead 100plus classics into Bonhams Quail Lodge Auction, August 24, during the annual Pebble Beach/ Monterey Peninsula Car Week. The longest continuous auction on the Monterey Peninsula, the 21st annual event will be held on the western lawns of the Quail Lodge & Golf Club, Carmel, in conjunction with The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering 2018. The automobilia sale begins at 9 a.m., and the cars go on block at 11 a.m. Preview days are Wednesday and Thursday, August 22–23, 9 a.m.–6 p.m. One of the great sports cars, the Pinin Farinadesigned 1962 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta (Chassis number 3337GT) is a documented, matching numbers, Ferrari Classiche-certified car with original coachwork by the great Scaglietti. Multi-award winning, the 250 GT, for example, was named Best Roadcar, with a perfect 100-point title, from the Ferrari Club of America International Meet. The 1948 Talbot-Lago T26 Record Sport has coachwork by the great house of Saoutchik. Featured at the 1950 Paris Motor Show, the car also received the prestigious Grand Prix du Salon. Almost no one knew where this Talbot-Lago was for a quarter of a century until Nevada collector Bob Lee found and purchased it. The present owner gave the classic a no-expense-spared professional restoration to its original condition. One of three built and the only survivor, the 1931 Bentley 8-Liter Saloon has the all-aluminum

28

factory coachwork by the celebrated Vanden Plas. Two 1928 Bentleys include a 6 ½ -Liter Open Sports Tourer by Barker and a 4 ½-Liter Open Tourer by Vanden Plas, an example of the model that won the company its second Le Mans victory and set the fastest lap in 1928. The Brass Era 1911 Mercedes 28/60 Tourer has undergone a fully documented, historically accurate concours-level restoration. The pioneering German motorcar has been campaigned in numerous longdistance rallies, maintaining cruising speeds of more than 60 mph.

1958 Porsche 550A Spyder, Lot S91

1968 Chevrolet Corvette L88 Coupe, Lot S137

10TH MECUM MONTEREY AUCTION IS AUGUST 23–25 by David M. Brown A racing-heritage Porsche, an L88 Corvette and a twin-turbo Pagani Huayra head the docket of approximately 600 cars for the 10th Mecum Monterey Auction, August 23–25, at the Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel and Spa, Del Monte Golf Course. Gates open daily at 8 a.m., and the auction begins daily at 10 a.m. The Porsche 550A Spyder is one of 39 built and a three-time winner during the 1958 season with driver Ernst Vogel, also a virtuoso composer and concert pianist. Later, road-racer Harry Blanchard entered it in SCCA regional events along the East Coast. Current owner Steve Terrien found the Stuttgart racer in a warehouse in 1984. And during the last 30 years, the car has received a comprehensive restoration. Fewer than 600 miles of driving has accrued since. The Polar White-on-red-leather 1968 Chevrolet Corvette L88 is one of 80 produced this year and carries a period-correct 427/430 horsepower aluminum-head big block, Muncie M22 four-speed and 3.70 positraction rear end. Contrary to GM policy, the legendary Chevrolet engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov worked to homologate the car for SCCA A Production and FIA GT competition, but some L88s were acquired by private owners who just wanted this most powerful Corvette in their garages. Named after the Andean wind god, Huayra-Tata, the twin-turbo V-12 2014 Pagani Huayra is number 62 of 100. Its Mercedes-Benz AMG-engineered 720 horses deliver 0–60 sprints of 2.8 seconds and a

top speed of 238 mph through the seven-speed automated manual transmission. The gullwing-designed chariot of the gods is uniquely made of a carbon-titanium composite, “carbotanium,” lighter and stronger than carbon fiber, decreasing weight and increasing structural torsional rigidity. This version of Horacio Pagani’s supercar is finished in Blue Argentina with a gold accent stripe and has been driven fewer than 400 miles since production in Modena. “As Monterey car week approaches each year, the hype and anticipation for car enthusiasts is second only to the likes of Christmas presents for children around the world,” says Sam Murtaugh, vice president of marketing and presentation for the Walworth, Wisconsin-based company. “Mecum’s lineup for 2018 is shaping up once again to excite the senses in all categories. From a 1958 Porsche 550A Spyder to a 2018 Ferrari California T, in true Mecum fashion, we’ve got the bases covered for all.” Bidder registration for Mecum Monterey is available online in advance for $100, $200 after August 22, and includes admission for two to each auction day. General admission tickets are available in advance online for $20 per person, per day, and for $30 at the door and online after August 22. Children 12 and younger receive complimentary admission.

68TH PEBBLE BEACH CONCOURS d’ELEGANCE IS AUGUST 26 by David M. Brown OSCA –– the “giant killer” –– will be a featured class at the 68th Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance on August 26. Automobiles and motorcycles will be judged and awarded in 29 classes for historical accuracy, technical merit and style. The world-destination event raises almost $2 million annually for local charities. To date, donations by Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance® total more than $25 million. The culmination of Monterey Car Week and Pebble Beach Automotive Week, the Concours will welcome thousands of enthusiasts to The Lodge at Pebble Beach™ and 200 of the world’s prized collector cars. The event will showcase 15 cars from OSCA– Fratelli Maserati to tell the story of the Italian marque, which debuted in 1947. Seven years later, an OSCA MT4 1500 Spider won the 12 Hours of Sebring outright by five-plus laps. Owned by Briggs Cunningham and driven by Stirling Moss and Bill Lloyd, the classic racer is now in The Collier Collection at The Revs Institute in Naples, Florida, and exemplifies OSCA’s wining mix: lightweight, reliable, built to win. The 1949 OSCA MT4 Siluro — the second OSCA created — is the earliest of the marque at this year’s Concours. Another OSCA is a 1952 MT4 MM Spider. With an Ernesto Maserati-designed Mille Miglia body, this spider was the first OSCA on the West Coast and is the last surviving Mille Miglia–bodied MT4 and the only MT4 in existence with grill-mounted headlights. Another featured class will be Postwar Custom

The nonticketed event is open to the public as one of the many events during Pebble Beach Automotive Week 2018, which culminates on Sunday, Aug. 26, with the 68th Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. “As the official automotive marketplace of the Pebble Beach Concours, RetroAuto continues to attract automotive enthusiasts who are looking for special additions to their collections or the latest in must-have auto-inspired necessities,” Waller adds. This year’s Pebble Beach Classic Car Forum at the Inn at Spanish Bay features discussions with car personalities Jay Leno, Donald Osborne,

Jerry Seinfeld, Spike Feresten, Wayne Carini and Michael Strahan. In “The Truth About Tucker,” experts on the legendary American marque will explore why the company so quickly ended, including moderator, automotive writer Ken Gross, John Tucker Jr., grandson of Preston Tucker and past president of the Tucker Automobile Club of America, and Steve Tremulis, nephew of Alex Tremulis, Preston Tucker’s chief stylist for the Tucker 48. And, in “Big in Japan,” collectors will discuss future Japanese auto collectibles including the Mitsubishi Model A and the Datsun 240Z; and historians at “The Racing Legacy of OSCA-Fratelli Maserati” will recall the Italian marque’s memorable 1950s wins. In addition, celebrated car photographer Michael Furman will discuss “A Career with Cars and Cameras.” The sessions are on a pavilion along the first fairway but require reservations and, in some cases, $85 for tickets. Proceeds benefit the Pebble Beach Company Foundation supporting Monterey County youth. “The Classic Car Forum is a great way for our guests to delve deeper into cars shown at the event or general issues of concern to enthusiasts,” Waller says.

Monterey Motorsport Park

Monterey Motorsport Park revs up construction just ahead of Car Week As much as there is to do and see during Car Week, it’s not possible to attend every event and activity. But this year, there’s one thing auto enthusiasts absolutely must do while they’re in town — learn more about Monterey Motorsport Park — an upscale garage-condo facility and car community that has just broken ground along Highway 68, adjacent to Monterey Regional Airport. The 86-unit, 90,000 sq. ft. complex with top-ofthe-line garage-condos ranging from around 700 sq. ft. to 2,100 sq. ft. is expected to open in the second quarter of 2019. The facility is designed to meet the needs of small and large collectors alike, as well as track-driving enthusiasts and any individual or business looking for extra space for storage. “There’s a huge demand for this type of facility on the Monterey Peninsula,” said Gordon McCall of McCall Events — co-host of McCall’s Motorworks Revival, the gala that annually kicks off Car Week, and a co-founder of The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering. McCall is also a member of the Monterey Motorsport Park development team. “If you’re a collector, this complex will provide space that you own — not rent — to safely keep your cherished cars, motorcycles and the memorabilia that goes along with them.” Unique car community Monterey Motorsport Park isn’t your typical storage facility. The design of the individual garage-condos lends itself to the creation of a unique car community. Approximately one-third of the square footage in each unit is allocated to a mezzanine 13 feet above the garage floor — accessible via an interior staircase. These spaces are ideal for a personal office or plush leisure retreat with large-screen TV, wet bar and

52

Highline Autos

comfortable seating area — set above where owners will store their vehicles and other personal or business items and materials. The end result is that owners will hang out at Monterey Motorsport on weekends or race days — enjoying the company of friends or wrenching on their cars. The complex is fully fenced — with abundant lighting, access-controlled entry, video coverage of the entire perimeter and unit entrances, and proactive 24x7 monitoring and guarding. Connections will be provided to arrange for Internet access, phone service or cable TV. Oversized rollup doors will make moving cars in and out efficient — with some condos large enough to accommodate motorcoaches or boats. Additional walk-in doors will enable easy access for owners and their guests. Half of the units already reserved The overwhelming need for luxury vehicle storage on the Monterey Peninsula has driven high demand at the community. Already, more than 50% of the space at Monterey Motorsport Park has been spoken for.
