A6G/2000 Gran Turismo 54 Coupe Tipo C by Allemano





The improved A6G 2000 began to replace the A6 1500 from 1950. The A6 engine was enlarged, precisely to 1,954.3 cc (119.3 cu in) with a bore and stroke of 72x80 mm; it retained the single overhead camshaft. Also thanks to triple carburettors, output was between 90–100 hp (67–75 kW; 90–100 bhp) and top speed 160 to 180 km/h (99 to 112 mph). The chassis retained the same measurements of the A6 1500, but the rear axle was now sprung on semi elliptic leaf springs.

The model debuted at the 1950 Turin Motor Show, wearing Pininfarina coachwork. Just sixteen cars were built, all between 1950 and 1951. Nine received 2+2 fastback bodies by Pininfarina; Frua built four convertibles and one coupé; lastly one got Vignale coupé bodywork designed by Giovanni Michelotti.

After a two year hiatus at the 1954 Mondial de l'Automobile in Paris Maserati launched a new grand tourer, the A6G 2000 Gran Turismo—commonly known as A6G/54 to distinguish it from its predecessor. It was powered by a new double overhead camshaft inline-six, derived from the racing engines of A6GCS and A6GCM, with a bore and stroke of bore 76.5x72 mm for a total displacement of 1,985.626 cc (121.2 cu in). Fed by three twin-choke Weber DCO carburettors it put out 150 hp (112 kW; 150 bhp) at 6000 rpm, which gave these cars a top speed between 195 to 210 km/h (121 to 130 mph). Dual ignition ignition added in 1956 increased power to 160 hp (119 kW; 160 bhp).

Four body styles were offered: a three-box Carrozzeria Allemano coupé (21 made), a coupé and a Gran Sport spyder by Frua (7 and 12 made), and a competition-oriented fastback by Zagato (20 made). Total production between 1954 and 1956 amounted to 60 units
