The Maserati A6 is the first road car developed and produced by Maserati after World War II.  It first appeared at the 1947 Geneva Motor Show where the Pinin farina bodied berlinetta was well received both by the Press and the Public.

The A6 1500, named for founder Alfieri Maserati and the car's 1.5-liter six-cylinder engine, was the first of the Trident's postwar sports cars and the last designed by the Maserati brothers. Sixty-one A6 1500 were built between 1947 and 1951. The A6 1500's engine was a 1,488cc single-overhead-camshaft six, similar to the A6GCS sports car's 2.0-litre unit, and produced its maximum output of 65bhp at 4,700rpm. Its chassis was of the ladder frame type, the double-wishbone front suspension was derived from racing practice and coil springs suspended the live rear axle. Top speed, depending on coachwork, was in the region of 90-95mph.

Only ten Maserati A6 1500s were equipped during production with triple Weber carburettors. This desirable enhancement considerably raised power from the single-carbureted base version, and signaled the marque's refocusing on performance instead of accommodating postwar low-octane fuel constraints.

The thoroughbred A6 1500 is powered by an aluminum / magnesium derivative of Maserati's 6CM Grand Prix engine, in an innovative tubular chassis and carrying an interior of surprising refinement, a combination of performance and luxury that set the pattern for Maserati road cars of later years. The A6 was essentially sold as a tubular chassis with running mechanical components. The coachwork was completed by famous Italian Carrozzeria like Pinin Farina or Zagato.
