1958 Maserati 3500 GT Spyder By Frua

Before the official debut of the Maserati 3500 GT, the Italian automaker entrusted a select group of esteemed coachbuilders to create bodywork that would perfectly complement the newly designed chassis. Among these trusted collaborators was Turin-based coachbuilder Pietro Frua, to whom five chassis were delivered.

Frua, known for his passion and meticulousness, returned the chassis adorned with exquisite and intricate designs. However, only one of these completed cars, bearing the chassis number AM101 268, was crafted as an open spyder, and it is the very car featured here.

This particular Maserati 3500 GT Spyder by Frua boasts a captivating and one-of-a-kind design. Noteworthy elements include elegantly integrated headlights seamlessly blending into gently rising wings, cleverly concealed chrome-trimmed side air intakes, and flared tail fins that add punctuation to the overall shape. These fascinating design features contribute to the uniqueness and allure of this remarkable automobile.
