By 1957 Bandini was dominating the 750cc class car races. With successes in Europe and the U.S., Bandini was approached by the Maserati Brothers to build a new car with their engine. The result was the car you see here. The Italians called the car by the nickname "Saponetta" which means "little soap bar", for being small and slippery. The unique patented oval tubing, lighweight engine and aluminum body form one of the lighest race cars built in its day.
