One of the most interesting entrants in the Graham Hill Trophy at the members’ meeting was this strange but beautiful Maserati. I initially thought it was a custom bodied car, but after some scratching around I found it was a factory effort, the successor to the famous Tipo 61 ‘Birdcage’. It was designed by Pierre Drogo, so any similarities with the Ferrari 250 GT ‘Breadvan’ (especially the aerodynamic ‘Kamm tail’ rear) are not co-incidental.

1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB ‘Breadvan’

this one off was designed by Giotto Bizzarrini, this is more aerodynamic and 100kg lighter then the mighty GTO, raced in the 1961 24 Hours of Le Mans it fared very well until a broken driveshaft knocked it out of the race

either loved or hated for it’s 'camionette’ (French for little truck) rear end, it was undeniable and you couldn’t look away, or in this case not listen to that sound…
