Pietro Frua (2 May 1913 - 28 June 1983) was one of the leading Italian coachbuilders and car designers during the 1950s and 1960s.”

“Maserati was one of the first clients who contracted Frua for the styling of their new 2-litre, 6-cylinder sports car, the A6G. From 1950 to 1957, Frua built 19 Spyders and seven coupés in three different design series – including some on the A6 GCS racing chassis.”

Except for the cyclops eye, it's a nice looking car.

Looks like Maserati gave the Brits some inspiration...

I like the cyclops.
Reminds me of Twilight Zone "To Serve Man".

Inspiration in what way?

That is, how are the two more alike than any number of other similar vintage, two-seaters?

I'm more of a 1938 Delahaye 165 Roadster man

Yeah, I don't see any resemblance either. However, I do note that the Maserati appears to have Buick Cruiserline Ventiports (the holes in the side of the front fenders). Did those start with Buick or Maserati? Buick started using them in 1948. Not sure about Maserati.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Saw a Maserati parked down block just this afternoon. 'Is that a Buick?' I asked myself. Nope, on closer inspection the ventiports belonged to the Maserati..

To my old eyes, the shapes of the newer A-H mimicked the Maserati, not
that they are "more alike".
