Maserati 6CM (1936 - 1940) were 29 italian single-seater racing cars made by Maserati of Modena. It was built on the Maserati 4CM frame, and front suspension as on Maserati V8RI. The first version had

outputting 155 bhp @ 6200 rpm; Pirelli tyres. It weighed 650 kg and reached around 140 mph. A second version featured a larger engine (175 bhp @ 6600 rpm) and semi-cantilever leaf springs (1938), and the third version had some minor adjustments (1939). The last two cars had four valves per cylinder, and in its last year, experiments with natural aspirations were made (1940).

Most cars were sold to private owners such as Austin Dobson, Lord Howe and Johnny Wakefield. Teams that ran the car were Scuderia Ambrosiana and Ecurie Helvetica. Maserati's own works team also ran (and won) the car in races such as Grand Prix of Naples and Targa Florio, using drivers Aldo Marazza, Luigi Villoresi and Ettore Bianco.
