The 24 Hours of le Mans
 

The Maserati 300S was a racing car produced by Maserati of Italy between 1955 and 1958, which competed in the FIA's World Sportscar Championship. Twenty-six examples were produced.

After a poor showing in the first season (1955) due mainly to mechanical malfunctions and development problems, it won at the Nürburgring in 1956 and finished second overall. It was second to the Maserati 450S, and was followed by the Maserati 350S. After the Guidizzolo accident (1957), the last few 300S were sold to customers in the USA. Giulio Alfieri gave up an attempt to fit it with fuel injection. One 300S was developed with the new V12 engine, becoming the Maserati 350S.

This diecast model is by De Agostini, it was sourced from Lacy Scott & Knight Auctioneers in November 2018
