In celebration of their famous 1940 win at the Indianapolis 500 known as the "Boyle Special," Maserati teamed up with cult Italian bike builder Cicli Montante to create a limited-edition bicycle resembling the victorious fixed head, eight-cylinder 8CTF race car. With driver Wilbur Shaw behind the wheel for the second year in a row, Maserati historically took first place proving the prowess of European design.

Debuting at the recent Paris Auto Show, Cycle EXIF points out that while successful bike/car collaborations are rare, the Montante Maserati 8CTF is a clear exception.


In addition to the beautiful coloring and detailing, Cycle EXIF asks "Who else is sticking a front disc brake on a fixed geared bike? It might not necessarily be the smartest thing to do, but at least they're putting it out there."


A limited run of 200 bikes were created (in commemoration of the 200 laps completed during the race), each individually numbered and selling online from Cicli Montante for €3,000.
