Unless you're one of the lucky five that managed to secure one.
This summer, Zagato will unveil the Maserati Mostro at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, as the coachbuilder celebrates its collaboration with the Italian marque on its 100th anniversary, while paying tribute to the 1957 Maserati 450 S. Dubbed “il Mostro” for its monstrous power, the original coupe was commissioned by Stirling Moss for the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and remained the world’s most powerful front-engined racer for over thirty years.

The retro design of the modern tribute is built around a carbon monocoque with bodywork made entirely of carbon fiber and a V8 mounted up front mated to a six-speed semi-automatic rear transaxle. The Mostro will be road legal but “has been created from pure racing mechanics.” The coachbuilder is coy on specifics with no word on performance, but it did reveal the Mostro will boast double wishbone suspension and 19-inch alloys housing large disc brakes. Only five units will be built and all have been spoken for.
