Monster by Name

In May 2015, at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este near Lake Como, the Mostro powered by Maserati was debuted.

The Mostro was designed and built by the famous coachbuilder Zagato.

This wonderful creation celebrated two momentous occasions. The first was the 100th anniversary of Maserati.

The second commemorates the famous racing car, the Maserati 450 S Coupé Zagato Monster.

The Maserati 450S was a classic sports and racing car driven by some greats, including Juan Miguel Fangio, Stirling Moss and Carroll Shelby.

Zagato has a history with Maserati; it built the legendary 1957 Maserati 450S Coupé, which Stirling Moss commissioned and raced.

The 450S was known as ‘il Mostro’ (the Monster) and thought to be the most powerful front-engined racing car in the world into the 1990s.

Zagato only created nine; of these, only the Costin Zagato was turned into a road-going GT car.

Regarding the ‘new’ Mostro, only five were built and fitted with a naturally aspirated Maserati 4.2 litre V8 engine producing an estimated 460bhp.

The Mostro’sdoors opened upwards, unlike any other Maserati.

The five Zagato-created Mostros were all offered to existing Zagato clients.
