Maserati 200S were twenty-eight racing cars made, to take over for the aging Maserati A6 GCS racing variants.
In 1957 the name was changed to Maserati 200SI, Sport Internazionale, to signify its conformance to international sports car racing rules. In 1958 the engine was made bigger (2.5 litres) and the car was named as 250S. The car did not bring significant victories.
This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in May of 2009 at Ferrari S.p.A., Fiorano Modenese, Modena.
235 hp at 7,000 rpm, 2,489 cc dual overhead cam inline four-cylinder engine, four-speed transmission, front suspension via wishbones, coil springs and hydraulic shock absorbers, de Dion rear axle with transverse semi-elliptic leaf spring and hydraulic shock absorbers. Wheelbase: 2,200 mm (86.6 in.)
