1937 Maserati Tipo Veturetta among highlights at Goodwood Revival

A rare 1937 Maserati Tipo Veturetta is to auction with a $1.4m estimate on September 13

A 1937 Maserati Tipo single seat racing Veturetta with a valuation of 600,000-900,000 ($994,698-1.4m) is to auction in Bonhams' Goodwood Revival sale on September 13.

The six-cylinder lot was designed to compete with cars produced by ERA (English Racing Automobiles), which was besting all comers at the 1500cc level.

Maserati Tipo The 1937 Maserati Tipo was a force to be reckoned with on the track

It proved a highly efficient racer, developing a strong reputation on the tracks of Europe.

Austin Dobson, a renowned British driver, was the first owner of the example offered in the sale and raced it extensively at some of the biggest events in the UK - including the British Grand Prix and the Jersey Road Race.

It's one of two Maseratis on offer, the other being a four-cylinder 1,100cc model built in 1932 that carries an estimate of 400,000-600,000 ($663,544-995,316).

James Knight, Bonhams' group head of motoring, commented: "Maserati is currently enjoying its centenary year, and these well known and highly respected examples of the marque are a wonderful tribute.

"They rarely come to market because they are so rare, with just 20 4CMs and 27 6CMs built in period.

"They each have a glorious period racing history, and are a worthy addition for any Maserati collector."

Bonhams' Goodwood Revival features a stunning array of classic racers, including a 1936 Lagonda LG45 Rapide and a 1930 OM Mille Miglia.
