Created in celebration of the 70th anniversary of the victory in the Indianapolis 500 of the Maserati 8CTF #1, the bike debuted at the Paris International Motor Show which took place from the 2nd to the 17th October 2010. A limited run of 200 bikes has been created, in commemoration of the number of laps completed at the Indy 500 by driver Wilbur Shaw in 1940. The car was named the Boyle Special after the US based sponsor who financed Maserati’s expeditions. Montante has applied numerous correlations between the car and the bike, including a replica of the Boyle Special logo on the top tube, the authentic 30’s script on the down tube, embossed tridents on the hubs and the same enameled badge on the head tube that appeared on the Maserati’s bonnet.

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.
