Awesome Car Pic: Maserati 250SNovember 26th, 2014
I just love this picture of an old Maserati 250S, posted by Flickr contributor Geoff Ackling. What’s great about it is the faded colors, dust and scratches aren’t from some silly Instagram filter, but are artifacts of it being an ancient slide that was scanned into a computer. From the looks of the car parked to the left of it, I’m thinking it was taken back in the early 1960s.
The Maserati 250S was a limited run competition race car made from 1955 to 1957, and was powered by a twin-cam 4-cylinder engine with 235 bhp. Only a handful of the cars were made, and as such, a restored 1957 250S recently sold at auction for over $3.3 million (USD).
