During the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este event that took place in Italy, coachbuilder Zagato presented a stunning Maserati named Mostro, which is Italian for Monster. Featuring a classic look and an unmistakably menacing appearance, this elegant ride should definitely catch the eyes of classic Maserati fans, especially since it is inspired by the renowned 1957 Maserati 450S Costin/Zagato Coupe that participated in Le Mans races.
With such a heritage, it makes sense that this ride would boast track-ready features such as pushrod-actuated shock absorbers and a double wishbone suspension. However, when compared to the track-only 1957 Maserati 450S Costin/Zagato, the Mostro is completely road legal, and that just makes it awesome. Created almost entirely out of carbon fiber, the Zagato Mostro tips the scales at just 2,204 pounds, and it is equipped with a roaring 4.2L V8 engine developed by Maserati and Ferrari. The engine flaunts 420 horsepower, all of which are kept in check by a six-speed semi automatic gearbox mounted at the rear of the vehicle.
This beast will be manufactured in a limited edition of just 5 units. If you were planning to buy one, you’re out of luck, as all five are already spoken for.
