'Produced to Porter Press's usual standards, this is an affordable and worthwhile effort. The many photographs of South American events, most of them unfamiliar, are of particular interest and add further colour to the story of an already remarkable competition car.' SB

'The history attached to and surrounding this car is phenomenal; remember that General Peron was President of Argentina at the time of the car’s acquisition. A great racing fan, he wanted to be sure that his drivers were able to compete head-on with the best of the rest in the world
'...This is a lovely book that will enthuse any classic racing car buff and more besides.'

'As with all books that bear the name of Porter Press International, this slim 128-page volume, number 6 in the Exceptional Car series, is not only very well produced and good value, but also immerses its subject matter; in this case Maserati 4CLT chassis number 1600, with well researched history and nicely timed capsulated chapter adding up to much more than just another reference book. It is also a most enjoyable read.'
Historic Racing News, January 15, 2018
'How the car was re-discovered, restored and rebuilt to its original specification, and went on a journey from Argentina to the United States and Japan - this part of the book reads like a detective story! - before settling back in Europe in historic racing. A personal account of driving and running the car from a former owner, who describes the daunting task of recreating a Maserati 4CLT engine from scratch. Profusely illustrated and including many previously unpublished photographs. An insight into the vibrant post-war racing scene in South America, pieced together by author Cristián Bertschi, a specialist in tracking the history of cars in this era.'
