With a spyder body by Fantuzzi, number 2089 was a private entry in both the 1955 and 1956 Mille Miglia races, finishing 1st in Class (4th overall) and 2nd in Class (56th overall) respectively. Owned and driven by Francesco Giardini, it also competed at other venues in period, such as LeMans, Monza, and the Targa Florio. It is powered by a 2-liter twin cam 6-cylinder engine. In 1959 the car was rebuilt at the Maserati factory in a GT configuration with its present Pininfarina coupe body. It won the Art Center College of Design Award at Pebble Beach in 2005.
The Maserati brothers - Aflieri, Bindo, Carloe, Ettore, Ernesto and Mario - began by building race cars in Italy in the 1920s. They won early and often, including the Targa Florio in 1926 in their first race with a new car. In 1937, Omer Orsi took control of Maserati, though the brothers stayed on until 1947 when they left to found OSCA.

Maserati introduced the A6GCS in 1953. Overseeing its design and development was Gioachino Columbo who joined the firm in 1952. Primarily intended to be a sports racer, it was powered by a potent 1995cc twin-cam six-cylinder engine, tubular chassis, independent front suspension and rigid rear axle. While most were delivered as a Fantuzzi Barchetta, a handful had Frua, Vignale, and Pinin Farina coachwork.

Guglielmo Dei was the Maserati distributor in Rome, Italy. In addition, he operated the Centro Sud racing school. He was known for having many special cars built for his Rome distributorship. He ordered four of Maserati's successful A6GCS racing chassis and sent them to coachbuilder Pinin Farina to design and build competition Berlinettas.

This car is the fourth built in-series, all of which were different. It is believed to have been the 1955 Paris Auto Salon show car. It sports many unique features including a canted elliptical grille opening with concave grille bars and 'Frenched' headlights typical of Pinin farina competition cars of the time.

Pininfarina crafted this true race-bred Berlinetta. Some of its more interesting design features are its canted elliptical grille opening and the concave grille bars. It has 'Frenched' style headlight treatment that Pininfarina was known for in their designs for competition cars based in Maranello.

This Berlinetta example, 2060, was the fourth car built in the series. All four cars had styling differences. The first in the series was 2056, completed in December 18, 1953, and 2057 was the second. The 2059 was the third car built and was the 1954 Paris Show Car. It is believed that this car, 2060, was the 1955 Paris Show Car.
