Maserati 250F


More from Nick Mason’s Ten Tenths collection… This is a Maserati 250F – I don’t know the exact provenance but these cars were driven in F1 by the likes (amongst many others of Juan Manuel Fangio and Stirling Moss. The 250F raced from 1954 until 1960. One of the brilliant things about Ten Tenths collection is that many of the cars in the stable are raced regularly. This one obviously had been and had just as obviously been in a shunt – nothing too serious by the look of it – but enough to have to “undress” it. I’d seen a 250F in the Donnington Collection but I found this far more interesting. The brake drums are incredibly complex and sculptural, and getting to see all of the mechanicals was brilliant – although rather time consuming when drawing and rendering this!
