Maserati Tipo 61 "Birdcage"

Little gift for the community.
All scratch built with some blueprints ( really wrong ) and a lot of different photos as reference.
Every one of the 16 cars built is slightly different, so take it as a "standard". Interior is modelled using a single photo as a reference, so something can be little wrong this time.

Correct power and torque, correct suspensions ( double wishbone at front and de Dion axle, with transverse leaf spring at back )

Sound modelled using videos and some editing, not perfect but a lot of rOOooAAar.

Skins came in 4k, but, for people with low-end pcs, there is a folder called "LO_RES_skins" with 2k textures, just rename it to "skins" and voilà!

The folder structure is a bit different, there are some textures for driver model too, for cool new driver's suit and helmet colours.

As usual, big thanks to @luathas for some fine details, like fantastic tyre mapping, engraved spinners and some tweaks in INIs.
And big thanks to @Andy-R for the majority of cool historic skins.

Lod C and D, still searching for real audio.

Nice mod. This era always gives car which are really difficult to drive but it's extremely rewarding when you start to handle it a little.
Thanks for this beauty.
Yes, looks nice, but, If you use only your keyboard to drive, which is, everybody knows, the only way to drive, the car is an absolute horror. so, good mod, not for me..
