THE STORY BEHIND THE BOYLE SPECIAL
Mention Maserati racing cars and thoughts turn to the 250F with which Juan Manuel Fangio won the 1957 Formula 1 World Championship, or countless beautiful sports racing cars.
But the Italian marque’s most successful race cars was the 8CTF, a stunning single-seater built for Grand Prix racing in 1938, which enjoyed its greatest successes once it had crossed the Atlantic, changed its name to the Boyle Special and won the Indianapolis 500 Mile race, not just once, but twice in 1939 and 1940. The car’s record at the “Brickyard” is glittering with those two wins, plus two third place finishes and a fourth. It has been lovingly restored and is on display in the Indianapolis Hall of Fame Museum and is now immortalised in a beautiful Automobilist poster, created in collaboration with Maserati,
