Sir Stirling Moss raced his privately owned Maserati 250F for the whole of the 1954 racing season. Between 1954 and 1958 the 250Fs competed in and won over 55 races. The 250F first appeared at the 1954 Argentine Grand Prix driven by Juan Manuel Fangio. This Maserati team car (chassis 2515) won the 1955 Gold Cup at Oulton Park driven by Stirling Moss. In 1956 Stirling won the Italian and Monaco Grand Prix races in his 250F. This year (2009), the Maserati 250F was voted as the greatest race car ever. It was nominated by Sir Stirling Moss, who said 'I have great affection for the 250F because it was the car that gave me my first proper break in Formula One.'

This 250F, chassis number 2515, has been driven by Englishmen Sir Stirling Moss and Peter Collins, American Carroll Shelby, Argentinean Roberto Mieres, Italians Mantovani and Perdisa. It was sold in 1956 to Gianfranco Cornacchia, a Maserati agent for Northern Italy and raced under the Scuderia Guastalla banner driven by Villoresi, Gerini, Landi and Maglioli.

In 1957 it was sold to Otto Volonterio and participated in Grand Prix races and hill climbs from 1957 and 1963. Tom Wheatcroft acquired the car in 1965 and displayed it in his Donington Grand Prix Collection museum, which opened in 1965, where it stayed until acquired by the current owners. Between 1955 and 1959 this car competed in 39 Grand Prix events.
