Maserati 150GT Prototipo

www.supercars.net
Taking cues from the 4CTF single-seat race car, Vittorio Bellentani designed the 4-cylinder engine with advanced features such as dry-sump lubrication, an aluminum alloy block with cast iron liners and options such as a hemispherical combustion chamber with a 80º angled valves and twin-plug ignition.
Sometimes this prototype roadster is referred to as a 1500GT which would make sense given the lineage.
