Maserati 4CLT/48 Sanremo
Team: Officine Alfieri Maserati
The Maserati 4CLT/48 earned its "Sanremo" nickname for the first race it competed in, namely the Sanremo Grand Prix of 1948. Alberto Ascari immediately won that race with the car scoring another 5 wins that year.
In the first year of the Formula One World Championship, a Sanremo scored what was to be the Maserati's best Championship finish, when Louis Chiron took third place at his home Grand Prix: the 1950 Monaco Grand Prix. The last 4CL variant to compete in the F1 World Championship was a 4CLT/48 modified by the Arzani-Volpini team, failing to qualify for the 1955 Italian Grand Prix.
