at Silverstone 2000
Mark Knopfler's 1957 Maserati 300S.
The 300S cockpit and the ventilated front drum brakes.
The 2993cc 6-cyl in line engine developes 245-bhp at 6200-rpm.
Even the fuel tank is a work of art - the same cannot be said of the photographs!
How nice it must be to just sit and enjoy this car!
