1932 Maserati 4CS 1500

The 4CS was Maserati’s first road car.

It was a two-seat version of the 4CM-1100 monoposto (single seat) racing machine that Maserati was constructing for Voiturette racing. Built on the same chassis, the prototype 4CS-1100 employed the twin-cam, supercharged, 90-hp, 1088-cc inline four-cylinder engines that powered the 4CM and added an extra seat, cycle-style fenders, a generator and a starter.
