Rare 1957 Maserati Mille Miglia for Sale at $2 Million
One of the most beautiful and valuable 1950s Italian sports car ever, a 1957 Mille Miglia Maserati 200Si with custom coachwork by Carrozzeria Fantuzzi, is being offered for sale by Kidston in Geneva for about $2 million. With classic cars of this caliber fetching record auction prices and future appreciation a given, it represents an alluring investment opportunity.
One of only a handful of examples built for high-end late-1950s European and American sports car racing, the 200si is an enticing combination of rarity, beauty and speed with an impeccable and nearly unbroken competition pedigree. It captured frequent class victories in the world famous Mille Miglia, Mont Ventoux, Castell'Arquato Vernasca, Aosta-Gran San Bernardo, Trieste-Opicina and Bologna-San Luca races.
In 1959, the car was sold to a gentleman racer in the U.S. and has since been entered in various historic events, stopping for a full restoration in 2000 and culminating with an appearance at the Mille Miglia in 2005. Now it's ready for a new owner to take up the challenge.
