Designer Brianza

The 4CS was Maserati's first road car. It was a two-seat version of the 4CM-1100 monoposto (single seat) racing machine that Maserati was constructing for Voiturette racing. Built on the same chassis, the prototype 4CS-1100 employed the twin-cam, supercharged, 90 hp, 1088 cc inline four cylinder engines that powered the 4CM and added an extra seat, cycle-style fenders, a generator and a starter. The car's original designation (4CTR) derived from its detachable cylinder head construction or cilindi testa riporta. The second 4CS, shown here (chassis 1114), debuted on the Brianza stand at the 1932 Milan auto show. By the mid-1930s, Count Carlo Castelbarco owned the 4CS-1100 and had it re-bodied as a monoposto for racing. A larger, supercharged 1407-cc four from the 4CS 1500, producing 115 hp, was fitted along with hydraulic drum brakes.
