The Maserati Barchetta was a design never intended for road use, but instead, developed for a single-make championship that was held on various racetracks across Italy and Europe during 1993. The Barchetta had a single backbone chassis made from aluminum, expanding on a new technology that had been developed for the Chubasco prototype. The centrally mounted engine was a 2.0-liter, 24-valve V6 that developed 315 hp, while its wheel geometry was Formula 1-style and the body was made from composite and carbon fiber. With a total weight of only 1,700 pounds, performance was outstanding. A road-going version was considered but never developed, due to homologation challenges.
