The new Montante for Maserati 8CTF has been designed to celebrate the Anniversary of Wilbur Shaw's victory of the 500 miles of Indianapolis behind the wheel of a Maserati 8CTF.
The Montante for Maserati 8CTF is a limited edition with just 200 pieces individually numbered. The Montante for Maserati bicycles are specifically made to fit the rider.
The 8CTF model is a single speed bicycle and comes from one of Montante's original designs. Developed and produced by Montante Cicli in Italy, the Maserati 8CTF is embellished by unique and distinctive details: the silver Trident on a grey background on the hubs are inspired by the Maserati’s supercharged three-litre engine; the Maserati logo in a Thirties’ style on the frame reprises the metallic plate identifying the car’s chassis; the enamelled oval is a faithful reproduction of the one on the car’s bonnet.
The number 1 is the same as the one featured on Shaw’s car with which he won, twice in a row, the world’s most famous American race. From the Montante-Maserati collaboration, a new bicycle has been produced for all the admirers of the Trident Marque.
The limited edition Montante for 8CTF Maserati bike is made to order and is available to order online at a price of £3,204 plus shipping.Published 13 April 2011
