Complete History of the Maserati with Chassis Number 3015

This is the exceptional history of the Maserati race car with chassis number 3015 which was raced at many international race tracks by different privateer teams in the 1930s. Later sold to a Hungarian Count and survived undamaged the World War II as well as the Communist Era behind the iron curtain.

Under governmental control in the 1950s he rises up to the most successful race car in Hungary, spared from a planed modification to a two-seater sports car, and then to be stored for years in a weekend house. After a unsuccessful reactivation the Maserati 3015 is placed in a parlor for his owners personal display.

All the stories and anecdotes of his drivers, dazzling owners and teams, the great victories and the defeats have inspired the author to write this book about the very Maserati in correct historic settings.
