The MV Agusta 500-6 GP: superior class comes at a cost

The MV Agusta 500-6 GP was designed in 1956 and manufactured the following year in the Varese-based company. It had an unfortunate beginning: a piston rod broke at its racing debut during the 1958 Grand Prix des Nations, forcing pilot John Hartle to withdraw from the competition after little more than half the laps.

Soon after, the project was abandoned: the model was technically superior to its rivals, but production entailed excessive costs.

Here you can admire it in all its beauty, for free.
