History of the Maserati 300S

The Maserati 300S was a racing vehicle manufactured by Maserati of Italy between 1955 and 1958. There were 26 examples made in total. The 3.0-litre 245 horsepower @ 6200 rpm engine was based on the Straight-6 architecture of the Maserati 250F and had a longer stroke created by Vittorio Bellentani to boost capacity from 2.5-litres. The compression ratio was decreased from 12:1 to 9.5:1 as a result of FIA regulations mandating the engine to operate on-road car gasoline. Instead of the tubular framework of the 250F, a trellis structure was employed, and the aluminium body was designed by Medardo Fantuzzi. The brakes were identical to those found on the 250F, consisting of precision machined alloy drums with considerable finning. The suspension was likewise similar to that of the 250F, although it was strengthened to handle the rougher tracks and road surfaces prevalent in WSC racing. The 300S had a De Dion type rear axle, a transverse four-speed gearbox, and two chain-driven camshafts.

After a disappointing performance in the first season (1955), owing mostly to mechanical and development issues, it won at the Nürburgring in 1956 and finished second overall. It came in second place after the Maserati 450S and was followed by the Maserati 350S. Following the Guidizzolo catastrophe in 1957, the final few 300S were sold to consumers in the United States. Giulio Alfieri abandoned his effort to install fuel injection. The Maserati 350S was created by combining one 300S with the new V12 engine.

Dire Straits' Mark Knopfler owns a 300S and has raced it in historic contests for many years. In addition, in the song Red Staggerwing from his 2006 album All the Roadrunning, he sang, "If I was a Maserati, A red 300s, I'd ride around to your house, baby, Give you a driving test".
