The Maserati Brothers created this vehicle to compete against the German state sponsored Mercedes-Benz GP and Auto Union GP cars of the period. Only three 8CTF’s were produced with this car being the first, #3030. The engine was a straight eight-cylinder engine of 3-liter capacity giving 360 HP at 6300 RPM. The twin-cam engine design features two four-cylinder blocks attached to a single barrel foundation with two Roots type superchargers—one supplying each block. #3030 competed at the Indianapolis 500 four times and won the Pikes Peak Hill Climb in 1949 with Louie Unser. A sister 8CTF won the Indy 500 in both 1939 and 1940 with Wilber Shaw driving. These cars gave the Germans pause to consider.
