CMC Maserati 300S, Rolling Chassis, 1956
Limited Edition 3000 pcs.
This model introduces to you to the chassis and the inner structure of the famous Maserati sports racing car 300S. With the body removed, you are able to see the light-weight design of its tubular space frame and the other structural parts that mark model-building at its finest. One of the highlights of the Maserati 300S was its victory in the 1,000 km endurance race of the Nürburgring in 1956. Competitors like Ferrari, Jaguar and Aston Martin simply didn’t stand a chance in the race.
We bet you always wanted to know what a CMC model looks like underneath its body. Using the Maserati 300S (Item number M-105) as an example, we are revealing the sophisticated inside of CMC models. Indeed, there is every reason for CMC to show rather than hide it.
After the removal of the body, a so-called rolling chassis lies open before your eyes. This rolling chassis allows a revealing look into the design of its delicate tubular space frame, the wheel suspension systems, and the drivetrain, including the drive line arrangements of the engine and the rear axle transmission (transaxle). You will also find the cooling system with an upstream oil cooling line, the gas and oil tanks made of stainless steel plate, and the fine details of the cockpit, which is decked out with the original dashboard, and the genuinely leather-covered seats.
This piece of model-building art is complete with an authentic recreation of the framework on which the body rests.
