1 - Trofeo: The most powerful Maserati collection ever

  • Maserati expands the Trofeo collection: Levante is joined by Ghibli and Quattroporte
  • Ghibli and Quattroporte Trofeo: the fastest Maserati sedans ever;
  • Technical specifications;
  • V8 engine in Ghibli for the first time
  • New on-board technological features for the Trofeo collection

Modena, 10 August 2020 - Maserati writes a new chapter in its history by expanding its Trofeo collection. Following the 2018 launch of Levante Trofeo, the SUV’s most extreme, most powerful version, the new Quattroporte and Ghibli Trofeo are now available, achieving the pinnacle of performance, sportiness and luxury.

To highlight once again Maserati’s all-Italian identity, the colours chosen for the Trofeo collection launch are those of the country’s flag: green for Quattroporte, white for Levante and red for Ghibli, which combine with the burnished chrome-work and glossy red trims for a particularly aggressive and elegant look.

Maserati reinterprets its sedans by introducing the V8 engine.

The heart of Ghibli and Quattroporte Trofeo is the 3.8 l V8 Twin Turbo with power output of 580 hp at 6,250 rpm and peak torque of 730 Nm.

The engine, which has already revealed all its power on Levante Trofeo, is built at the Ferrari plant at Maranello to Maserati’s specifications, and has been modified and developed to deliver equally impressive performances on the rear-engine sedans.

Although completely new for Ghibli, the V8 engine has already been used in the past on Quattroporte GTS, in the 530 hp version. Today the 580 hp V8 engine is available on the new Ghibli, Quattroporte and Levante* Trofeo, in full compliance with fuel efficiency and emissions standards.

Ghibli and Quattroporte Trofeo can proudly claim to be the fastest Maserati sedans ever, with a top speed of 326 km/h. Levante Trofeo’s maximum speed is 302 km/h.

Like Levante Trofeo, the new Ghibli and Quattroporte Trofeo also incorporate the Integrated Vehicle Control (IVC) system, with a specific setup that guarantees enhanced driving dynamics, greater active safety and even more thrilling performance. The sedans have the Corsa button that sets the car for an even sportier driving style. Also included is Launch Control, a function that first appeared on Levante Trofeo, to unleash all the engine’s power and deliver breath-taking performance and an authentic Maserati driving experience.

While the unique signature of every Maserati is the sound of its engine, now the Trofeo collection will be even more unmistakable in looks, thanks to special stylistic touches that characterise these r high performance models. These include the front grille with twin vertical bars in Black Piano finish, and the introduction of carbon fibre on the front air duct trims and rear extractor, for an even more aggressive effect.

The whole Trofeo collection is distinguished by the red details that characterise the bottom profiles of the side air vents and the lightning bolt on the Trident badge on the C-pillars.

There are major changes at the rear of the car, where the light clusters have been completely restyled, with a boomerang-like profile inspired by the 3200 GT and the Alfieri concept car.

In terms of the Ghibli Trofeo, the bonnet has also been restyled, featuring two aggressive air ducts for better cooling, just like on Levante Trofeo.

Ghibli and Quattroporte Trofeo are fitted with 21” aluminium Orione wheels. 22” Orione wheels are available on Levante Trofeo.

The Trofeo characterisation continues in the interior, with a new on-board panel that displays an exclusive interface at switch-on, while the headrests bear the Trofeo badge with the name in three-dimensional relief. The exclusivity also extends to the interior upholstery, in full-grain Pieno Fiore natural leather.

The ADAS system has evolved to include new functions, and thanks to Active Driving Assist the assisted driving function can now be activated on urban roads and ordinary highways.

New technologies also appear in MIA (Maserati Intelligent Assistant), the multimedia screen with upgraded resolution and larger size - 10.1” on both Ghibli Trofeo and Quattroporte Trofeo, while Levante retains the 8.4” display, but with improved resolution and graphics. Furthermore, thanks to the Maserati Connect programme, now the Trofeo collection is always connected, with a full set of services to simplify its use.

Ghibli and Quattroporte Trofeo will be built at the Avvocato Giovanni Agnelli Plant (AGAP) at Grugliasco (Turin), and Levante Trofeo at the Mirafiori (Turin) plant.

4 - With the new Trofeo collection, Ghibli and Quattroporte are transformed into Maserati super-sedans

Modena, August 10th 2020 – First came Levante, presented in 2018, as the Granturismo philosophy in the body of an SUV with a potential speed of 302 kilometres an hour.

Now, Ghibli and Quattroporte will be available in the Trofeo version, the top of the Maserati range. The brand’s trident – performance, style and flawless handling – honed to perfection. They will boast the same distinguishing features, remaining true to their original identities – sedans according to Maserati – but in a superlative new expression. They are to the previous versions what Flash is to Barry Allen, what Batman is to Bruce Wayne or Superman to Clark Kent. No capes or lasers beaming from the headlights, however, they have the power to hit 326 kilometres an hour: the fastest factory-issued Maserati sedans ever. They represent the ultra-modern fulfilment of the brand’s racing promise, which in the 1960’s came up with the concept of a sporty luxury sedan model. Ghibli and Quattroporte Trofeo represent a further evolution of the sedan, destiny’s children sporting carbon-fibre inserts. And they are also immune to kryptonite.

Animated by a 580 horsepower V8 engine, they will speed along on 21-inch wheels, the largest sizes within this range. The hood of the Ghibli, already considered one of the most beautiful sedans ever, will boast two supplementary air vents, which relieve the heat whilst bustling a gritty roar. The lateral air vents, on the other hand, are bordered in red and wield the Trofeo name. The interiors are to be wrapped in full-grain Pieno Fiore natural leather and, just like the exteriors, they will boast 100% carbon-fibre inserts: Ghibli and Quattroporte in their Sunday best.

Even the infotainment is new: a processor that’s four times as powerful, screen resolution that’s ten times better and a memory with twice the capacity of the previous version. This new system, featuring a high-resolution screen similar to a tablet, will render the user experience much more enjoyable, complete and customisable. The Italian flag will embellish the central pillar and, for their official launch, the Quattroporte model will be green, white Levante and red Ghibli. Because these superheroes are Made in Italy. Furthermore, Levante Trofeo, has been restyled with new rear lights, a new infotainment system and new design features. The Trofeo collection is not just about innovation for Maserati; it is about surpassing preconceptions and expectations. Superlative in every way, Trofeo redefines what a sedan and a SUV can be.

Ambassadors of this heritage are the Quattroporte flagship, the Ghibli sports sedan, the Levante, Maserati’s very first SUV, and the GranTurismo and GranCabrio sports cars. A range complete as never before, with petrol and diesel engines, rear and all-wheel drive, the finest materials and outstanding engineering.  A tradition of successful cars, each of them redefining what makes an Italian sports car in terms of design, performance, comfort, elegance and safety.

5 - Maserati is one of Italians' Top Ten most sought-after places to work

The new Maserati Era starts from the energy of its Team

Modena, 20 July 2020 – Where would you like to work? This is the question put to Italians in the Randstad Employer Brand 2020 survey, involving a panel of 150 companies with over 1,000 employees and headquarters in Italy, and a sample group of 6,300 interviewees from 18 to 65 years of age. The answers received place Maserati in the Top Ten of the most attractive Italian companies in terms of their desirability as potential employers.

“We’re proud of this survey’s findings, but above all of the atmosphere you can sense within our organisation. In fact, 2020 is the year that marks the start of the New Maserati Era,” underlines Davide Grasso, Chief Executive Officer Maserati. “We’re tackling a new beginning with immense energy: the core values guiding the work of all our employees are ambition, innovation and passion.

We’re a courageous team, proud of our all-Italian history and audacious in the commitment we bring to the future and its challenges.”

According to the survey, Maserati is placed 6th amongst dream employers, winning points for its excellent reputation, pleasant working atmosphere, benefits and use of the latest technologies.

In a constantly changing world, where looking to the future with ambition is strategically vital, Maserati is 100% Italian DNA in constant evolution, reflected in a new Era featuring an even richer range, and innovation in production, electrification and autonomous driving.

6 - New Ghibli Hybrid: the first electrified vehicle in Maserati's history

  • The first hybrid vehicle in Maserati's history
  • Developed by the Maserati Innovation Lab of Modena
  • The vehicle will be produced at the Avvocato Giovanni Agnelli Plant (AGAP) at Grugliasco (Turin)

Modena, 16 July 2020 – The spark of electrification ignites Maserati's future: with the new Ghibli Hybrid, the Trident Brand enters the world of electrification.

The new Ghibli Hybrid represents one of the most ambitious projects for Maserati, which after the announcement of the new engine for the MC20 super sports car now sets the seal on another step forward towards the brand's new Era.

The choice to introduce the hybrid technology on the Ghibli sedan is no coincidence: this model, with over 100,000 units produced since its launch in 2013, perfectly embodies the Modena-based manufacturer’s DNA.

In fact, the challenge facing Maserati was to enter the world of electrification without altering the brand's core philosophy and values. The result? The creation of the best possible hybrid. What's more, Ghibli Hybrid will retain the unmistakable sound that has always distinguished every Maserati.

The arrival of the new Ghibli Hybrid thus expands the Maserati range, which is now even more competitive and responsive to the demands of the market.

Design
Ghibli Hybrid is immediately recognisable, thanks in part to the new design of both exterior and interior. The common denominator of the restyling, developed by the Centro Stile Maserati, is the blue colour, chosen to identify all cars with hybrid technology and the new world they represent.

On the exterior, the blue colour characterises the three iconic side air ducts, the brake calipers and the thunderbolt in the oval that encloses the Trident on the rear pillar. The same blue colour reappears inside the car, in particular on the embroidered seams of the seats. The new Ghibli Hybrid also introduces new stylistic contents, starting from the new front grille, with bars redesigned to represent a tuning fork, a musical device that emits a sound of extreme purity, and which also evokes the Trident symbol itself. There are significant changes at the rear of the car, where the light clusters have been completely restyled, with a boomerang-like profile inspired by the 3200 GT and the Alfieri concept car.

Mild Hybrid
In perfect harmony with its DNA, Maserati has chosen a hybrid solution focused primarily on improving performance, while also reducing fuel consumption and cutting emissions.

The hybrid technology exploits kinetic energy the car accumulates when in motion, recovering it and transforming it into electricity during deceleration and braking, and storing it in a battery.

The innovative powertrain, the outcome of in-depth engineering development work by the technicians and engineers of the Maserati Innovation Lab in Modena, combines an internal combustion engine (4 cylinders, turbo, displacement of 2.0 l) with a 48 volt alternator and an additional electric supercharger (e-Booster), supported by a battery. This solution is unique in its segment, and is the first in a new generation of powertrains, with the perfect trade-off between performance, efficiency and driving pleasure.

The battery is mounted in the rear of the car, with benefits in terms of improved weight distribution.

This version weighs about 80 kg less than the Diesel.

Thanks to maximum power output of 330 hp and torque of 450 Nm delivered from just 1,500 rpm, the new Ghibli Hybrid's performance data are very impressive: top speed of 255 km/h and acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.7 seconds.

Ghibli Hybrid occupants will still revel in the unmistakable sound that characterises all Maserati models, thanks to the optimised exhaust, which includes specially designed resonators.

Connectivity
Ghibli Hybrid also marks the debut of the new Maserati Connect program, which enables a constant connection with the car: the information exchange continues when on the move, to improve the services offered to the driver. As well as updating the software packages, the system performs checks on the car and monitors the Safety Security services in emergencies.

The Maserati Intelligent Assistant multimedia system is latest-generation, based on digital inputs from Android Automotive, software that delivers an innovative User Experience fully customisable to the driver's personal preferences. The multimedia system's HD screen, with new graphics, more user-friendly and without surrounds, is increased in size from 8”4 to 10”1. A new instrument panel with digital devices and new graphics is also introduced.

Electrification the Maserati way
The new Ghibli Hybrid represents the first step in a plan that will lead to the electrification of  all new Maserati models. The Brand's first all-electric cars will be the new GranTurismo and GranCabrio, scheduled for 2021.

7 - New Ghibli Hybrid: the first electrified vehicle in Maserati's history

  • The first hybrid vehicle in Maserati's history
  • Developed by the Maserati Innovation Lab of Modena
  • The vehicle will be produced at the Avvocato Giovanni Agnelli Plant (AGAP) at Grugliasco (Turin)

Modena, 16 July 2020 – The spark of electrification ignites Maserati's future: with the new Ghibli Hybrid, the Trident Brand enters the world of electrification.

The new Ghibli Hybrid represents one of the most ambitious projects for Maserati, which after the announcement of the new engine for the MC20 super sports car now sets the seal on another step forward towards the brand's new Era.

The choice to introduce the hybrid technology on the Ghibli sedan is no coincidence: this model, with over 100,000 units produced since its launch in 2013, perfectly embodies the Modena-based manufacturer’s DNA.

In fact, the challenge facing Maserati was to enter the world of electrification without altering the brand's core philosophy and values. The result? The creation of the best possible hybrid. What's more, Ghibli Hybrid will retain the unmistakable sound that has always distinguished every Maserati.

The arrival of the new Ghibli Hybrid thus expands the Maserati range, which is now even more competitive and responsive to the demands of the market.

Design
Ghibli Hybrid is immediately recognisable, thanks in part to the new design of both exterior and interior. The common denominator of the restyling, developed by the Centro Stile Maserati, is the blue colour, chosen to identify all cars with hybrid technology and the new world they represent.

On the exterior, the blue colour characterises the three iconic side air ducts, the brake calipers and the thunderbolt in the oval that encloses the Trident on the rear pillar. The same blue colour reappears inside the car, in particular on the embroidered seams of the seats. The new Ghibli Hybrid also introduces new stylistic contents, starting from the new front grille, with bars redesigned to represent a tuning fork, a musical device that emits a sound of extreme purity, and which also evokes the Trident symbol itself. There are significant changes at the rear of the car, where the light clusters have been completely restyled, with a boomerang-like profile inspired by the 3200 GT and the Alfieri concept car.

Mild Hybrid
In perfect harmony with its DNA, Maserati has chosen a hybrid solution focused primarily on improving performance, while also reducing fuel consumption and cutting emissions.

The hybrid technology exploits kinetic energy the car accumulates when in motion, recovering it and transforming it into electricity during deceleration and braking, and storing it in a battery.

The innovative powertrain, the outcome of in-depth engineering development work by the technicians and engineers of the Maserati Innovation Lab in Modena, combines an internal combustion engine (4 cylinders, turbo, displacement of 2.0 l) with a 48 volt alternator and an additional electric supercharger (e-Booster), supported by a battery. This solution is unique in its segment, and is the first in a new generation of powertrains, with the perfect trade-off between performance, efficiency and driving pleasure.

The battery is mounted in the rear of the car, with benefits in terms of improved weight distribution.

This version weighs about 80 kg less than the Diesel.

Thanks to maximum power output of 330 hp and torque of 450 Nm delivered from just 1,500 rpm, the new Ghibli Hybrid's performance data are very impressive: top speed of 255 km/h and acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.7 seconds.

9 - Maserati Multi 70 and Giovanni Soldini are back in Italy. New works planned on the trimaran in the name of technological innovation and the development of a cutting-edge configuration.

Modena, July 14th 2020 – Giovanni Soldini and Maserati Multi 70’s Team arrived today July 14th in La Spezia, after crossing the Atlantic Ocean. They set sail from Pointe-à-Pitre, in Guadeloupe, on July 1st and covered 4000 miles in 13 days. Soldini commented: «With the arrival in La Spezia Maserati Multi 70 completed its second trip around the world, now important news lay ahead of us!»

Aboard the trimaran, with Soldini, were Guido Broggi, Oliver Herrera Perez, Matteo Soldini, Gero Soldini and Gianni Randelli, who worked in the shipyard in Guadeloupe, for the maintenance that the trimaran needed after the races that took place last January and February. The Italian Team participated in the famous transoceanic race Cape2Rio, from South Africa to Brazil, and in the RORC Caribbean 600, around 11 islands in the Caribbean.

«We’re very happy to have brought Maserati Multi 70 back to Italy after two years and to have sailed with the MC20 mainsail for the first time in the Mediterranean», Soldini said. «Before setting sail we assembled the sheets under the net that we developed with the engineers from the Maserati Innovation Lab: they certainly made a significant contribution to the trimaran’s performance in this crossing. During the winter we will work long to set up a completely new configuration, it will be a big step forward for ocean flying boats. Since the first day of this adventure we have always focused on Maserati Multi 70’s technological development, and this continues today. Thanks to the valuable collaboration with the Maserati Innovation Lab, we aim to improve the trimaran’s performance both aerodynamically and hydrodynamically».

Giovanni Soldini and Maserati share the same values and desire to search for maximum performance, passion, courage and adrenaline since 2012. Soldini was the one to announce the name of Maserati’s new super sports car, displaying its logo on the trimaran’s mainsail: MC20 will be presented in Modena on September 9th.

The challenge is supported by Maserati, Main and Title Sponsor and Aon as co-sponsor, along with the official supplier for the clothing, Ermenegildo Zegna.

A special thanks also to Boero Bartolomeo S.p.A., Garmin Marine and Tarros.

10 - Maserati presents Nettuno: the new 100% Maserati engine that adopts F1 technology for a road car

  • Maserati Nettuno: 100% Maserati: 100% Made in Modena
  • A futuristic engine produced by Maserati’s team of technicians and engineers, protected by international patents.
  • Technical specifications confirmed for the new engine.
  • Technological features derived from Formula 1, resulting in improved engine efficiency, increased performance and reduced consumption.
  • The MC20 super sportscar, the first Maserati to adopt the new engine, will be presented during the “MMXX:The time to be audacious” event which will take place on 9 and 10 September in Modena

Modena, 01 July 2020 – Maserati’s new era begins with a new engine.

The new engine is the beating heart of the MC20 super sportscar that will make its world premiere in September. The unit was designed at Maserati’s Modena facilities: the Maserati Innovation Lab on Via Emilia Ovest, the workshops on Via Delle Nazioni (Maserati Corse’s historic base) and developed at the Engine Hub, situated at the famous Viale Ciro Menotti address where it will be built. Currently the new production line and new paint shop are being modified to host the much-anticipated MC20.

The new engine is the result of a technical revolution, one protected by international patents. The project was born from the passion and commitment of a team of highly-qualified technicians and engineers. After twenty years, Maserati has once again enthusiastically taken on the challenge of returning to its Modena HQ with the development and production of a new, highly-technological, high-performance engine.

The operation is a strategic one for Maserati, a brand that, today, is preparing to launch the new MC20, a project that is ‘100% Made in Modena’ starting right from it’s engine, the heart of the new car.

An ambitious design, which represents a historic moment for the company, a new era that will officially begin on September 9 and 10 in Modena during the event, "MMXX: The time to be audacious". At the launch, new models will be revealed, which will go into production in the coming years, and innovative propulsion systems as well as ambitious programmes developed by the Casa del Tridente  will be announced.

The new power unit is a V90° architecture, with a 3-litre, 6-cylinder twin-turbo, and features a dry sump (a classic solution on super sportscars). It delivers 630CV at 7500rpm and 730 Nm of torque from 3000rpm with a specific power output of 210CV/litre.

The compression ratio is 11:1, the stroke is 82 mm and the bore 88 mm.

The soul of the engine is the innovative pre-chamber combustion system featuring twin-spark plugs. This technology is derived from Formula 1 and is now available, for the first time, on an engine destined for the road.

The engine has three main features: 

The pre-chamber: a combustion chamber is set between the central electrode and the traditional combustion chamber and connected by a series of specially-designed holes.

Lateral sparkplug: a traditional sparkplug acts as a support to ensure constant combustion when the engine is operating at a level that doesn’t need the pre-chamber to kick in.

Twin injection system – direct and indirect: linked to the fuel supply pressure at 350bar, the system reduces noise low down on the rev range, lowering emissions and improving consumption.

It is strategically important and supported by the Innovation Lab, which, thanks to virtual analysis, has allowed development and planning times to be notably reduced.

The new “Made in Modena” engine, a traditional 90° V6, has been taken to unheard of power and torque levels and will be used for the first time on the MC20 super sportscar. The MC20 will take Maserati back to the world of racing.

13 - The new season of Master Maserati programme gets underway

Modena, 29 June 2020 - The 21st season of the Master Maserati driving courses begins, with a complete offering of sporty driving courses. In fact, this year the Master Maserati calendar includes a total of 7 events (with various  formats) at the Varano de’ Melegari circuit from 3 July to 23 October 2020.

The Master Maserati driving courses have adopted specific preventive measures and  special protocols to minimise any health risks during the activities and to enable customers to enjoy themselves in conditions of the greatest safety.

For more than 20 years, Maserati’s driving courses have been enabling participants to drive the entire model range, from legends like the GranTurismo MC GT4 to the latest offerings like the Levante Trofeo, and gain a personal insight into the secrets of racetrack driving. Each attendee receives individual tuition by a team of professional drivers and a personal instructor, backed up by detailed video analysis and full telemetry support.

Courses are run in partnership with the Scuderia de Adamich, whose pool of instructors has been further expanded this year to over 100 worldwide. Scuderia de Adamich has been a partner and coordinator of the Master Maserati driving courses since 1999, and thanks to this strong, enduring relationship,  has been able to  refine various methodologies and multiple courses over time.

Starting this year, Master Maserati driving courses offer no fewer than five different formats.

Four types of courses focus on circuit driving at the “Riccardo Paletti” track at Varano de’ Melegari. They are tailored for varying levels of proficiency and take place under the watchful eye of fully qualified racing drivers.

To ensure a truly unforgettable experience, the cars include the GranTurismo, Ghibli, Levante and the powerful GranTurismo MC GT4.

14 - The new season of Master Maserati programme gets underway

Modena, 29 June 2020 - The 21st season of the Master Maserati driving courses begins, with a complete offering of sporty driving courses. In fact, this year the Master Maserati calendar includes a total of 7 events (with various  formats) at the Varano de’ Melegari circuit from 3 July to 23 October 2020.

The Master Maserati driving courses have adopted specific preventive measures and  special protocols to minimise any health risks during the activities and to enable customers to enjoy themselves in conditions of the greatest safety.

For more than 20 years, Maserati’s driving courses have been enabling participants to drive the entire model range, from legends like the GranTurismo MC GT4 to the latest offerings like the Levante Trofeo, and gain a personal insight into the secrets of racetrack driving. Each attendee receives individual tuition by a team of professional drivers and a personal instructor, backed up by detailed video analysis and full telemetry support.

Courses are run in partnership with the Scuderia de Adamich, whose pool of instructors has been further expanded this year to over 100 worldwide. Scuderia de Adamich has been a partner and coordinator of the Master Maserati driving courses since 1999, and thanks to this strong, enduring relationship,  has been able to  refine various methodologies and multiple courses over time.

Starting this year, Master Maserati driving courses offer no fewer than five different formats.

Four types of courses focus on circuit driving at the “Riccardo Paletti” track at Varano de’ Melegari. They are tailored for varying levels of proficiency and take place under the watchful eye of fully qualified racing drivers.

To ensure a truly unforgettable experience, the cars include the GranTurismo, Ghibli, Levante and the powerful GranTurismo MC GT4.

Finally, there is a further course specifically for companies seeking to develop and consolidate team spirit, making full use of the fun and ethos of a unique driving course such as the Master Maserati.

19 - SparkTheNext: New Maserati Ghibli Hybrid

Modena, 03 June 2020 - Innovation has always been a muse for Maserati’s engineers and designers: it all starts with a spark - a flash of brilliance that catches, that burns, that grows.

The natural world is full of moments where a single spark evolves into something new - an instant where hybridization acts as the catalyst for change, and divergent elements clash and combine; meet and mix; encounter and evolve; giving rise to something better than before.

From this same inspiration comes the all new Ghibli Hybrid: the first in a line of new vehicles at the vanguard of a new era for Maserati.

The signature trident becomes a lightning-rod, channeling the energy from the atmosphere and infusing it with the DNA of the historic Master of Italian Engineering - starting the next chapter in the Maserati story: the first hybrid engine in the history of the marque where innovation and technology meet with high performance automotive engineering, driving Maserati boldly forward towards a more sustainable future.

21 - Maserati commemorates the American victories of the 8CTF at the Indianapolis 500

Modena, 29 May 2020 – The Maserati brand has achieved international fame for the design, style and performance of its unique cars.  With a tradition and history of successes on the roads and circuits all over the world, Maserati’s victories have made it a standard-bearer for Italian excellence. In fact, racing has always been in Maserati's DNA: it was in competition that its myth started to grow.

The two consecutive wins recorded on 30 May 1939 and 30 May 1940 at the Indianapolis 500, one of the world's most important races, with Warren Wilbur Shaw at the wheel, helped to grow the Brand's notoriety in the United States and internationally.

Maserati 8CTF
The 8CTF was another inspired design by Ernesto Maserati, originated in 1938 with the support of the Orsi family, the Modena entrepreneurs who had taken over the business in 1937. Characterised by its 8-cylinder engine with cylinders cast in a monoblock with the head (hence the name "8CTF", or 8 cylinders "testa fissa" - fixed head), the new car was Maserati's bid to return to competitiveness against the other European constructors.

The car which won the Indianapolis 500 in 1939 and 1940 was run by the Chicago Boyle Racing Headquarters team owned by Michael Joseph “Mike” Boyle. Therefore, it was entered in the race as a "Boyle Special".

After the first two victories, in 1941 Shaw seemed destined for a historic hat-trick, but a puncture prevented him from winning the American race a third consecutive time. In 1946, after a break due to the Second World War, the same 8CTF which Shaw had driven finished the Indianapolis race in third place, this time with Ted Horne at the wheel. It was followed home by another 8CTF, driven by Emil Andres. Horne repeated his third place in 1947, and went on to finish fourth in 1948. These very impressive results confirm the amazing sporting longevity of the initial design developed by Ernesto Maserati in 1938, which remained competitive at the highest levels for a decade.

Maserati's stunning performances in the Indianapolis oval laid the foundations for the birth of an Italian myth in the USA. Its prestige was so great that in 2014 the United States HVA (Historical Vehicle Association) registered the 8CTF as the first non-American production car to be awarded a permanent place in the annals of the Library of the US Congress. Recorded under the Secretary of the Interior’s "Standards for Heritage Documentation", the documentation has been placed in the NHVR (National Historic Vehicle Register) and HAER (Historic American Engineering Record). What's more, one of the three cars built, the one driven to victory by Wilbur Shaw in the 1939 and 1940 Indianapolis 500 races, has been reconfigured with the original paintwork and is displayed in the Indianapolis Speedway Museum.

However, the 8CTF's racing successes were not restricted to events on the traditional American ovals, since this Maserati model was also victorious in another famous race, the Pikes Peak hill climb in Colorado, where Luis Unser was the winner in 1946 and 1947. The Pikes Peak race was run over an uphill course of about 20 km, mainly on unpaved roads and with 156 bends which posed a severe test for both driver and car. The starting line was at 1,440 metres above sea level and the finish at 4,300 metres. These results were exceptional for an extraordinary car that proved highly competitive in totally different disciplines.

In 1946, after a break due to the Second World War, the same 8CTF which Shaw had driven finished the Indianapolis race in third place, this time with Ted Horne at the wheel. It was followed home by another 8CTF, driven by Emil Andres. Horne repeated his third place in 1947, and went on to finish fourth in 1948. These very impressive results confirm the amazing sporting longevity of the initial design developed by Ernesto Maserati in 1938, which remained competitive at the highest levels for a decade.

Maserati's stunning performances in the Indianapolis oval laid the foundations for the birth of an Italian myth in the USA. Its prestige was so great that in 2014 the United States HVA (Historical Vehicle Association) registered the 8CTF as the first non-American production car to be awarded a permanent place in the annals of the Library of the US Congress. Recorded under the Secretary of the Interior’s "Standards for Heritage Documentation", the documentation has been placed in the NHVR (National Historic Vehicle Register) and HAER (Historic American Engineering Record). What's more, one of the three cars built, the one driven to victory by Wilbur Shaw in the 1939 and 1940 Indianapolis 500 races, has been reconfigured with the original paintwork and is displayed in the Indianapolis Speedway Museum.

However, the 8CTF's racing successes were not restricted to events on the traditional American ovals, since this Maserati model was also victorious in another famous race, the Pikes Peak hill climb in Colorado, where Luis Unser was the winner in 1946 and 1947. The Pikes Peak race was run over an uphill course of about 20 km, mainly on unpaved roads and with 156 bends which posed a severe test for both driver and car. The starting line was at 1,440 metres above sea level and the finish at 4,300 metres. These results were exceptional for an extraordinary car that proved highly competitive in totally different disciplines.

24 - 80th anniversary of Maserati's Targa Florio victory. Maserati tests an MC20 prototype on the roads of the world's oldest race

Modena, 22 May 2020 - On 23 May 1940, Maserati celebrated a fantastic four wins in a row at the Targa Florio. In fact, a House of Trident car was first over the finishing line of the prestigious Sicilian race for the fourth consecutive year. The driver who added his name to the winners' board was Luigi (Gigi) Villoresi, at the wheel of the Maserati Tipo 4CL.

To celebrate the 80th anniversary of this historic victory, Maserati went back to Sicily with an MC20 prototype, and drove it over some of the roads where the history of the Targa Florio was written, such as the stretch where the famous Floriopoli stands are located.

The new supercar's development thus proceeds with tests in different conditions of use, with the aim of gathering data and information for the final fine tuning.
After the first batch of tests performed using the dynamic simulator at the Maserati Innovation Lab in Modena, the time has now come for road and circuit test drives.

The MC20 marks the start of a new era for the Italian Brand in terms of both style and technology; it is also the first car to use the new engine, brimming with innovative technological contents, developed and built by Maserati in-house.

Through the new MC20, to be launched in September, the Modena-based manufacturer aims to underline its sporting credentials, and to return to a leading role on the racing circuits, after the latest world championship won in 2010 with another extraordinary car, the MC12.

The 4CL
Created in 1939, this single-seater was the brainchild of Ernesto Maserati, youngest of the Maserati's founding brothers, who wanted to design a car that would be competitive in “Voiturette” class racing. The 4CL, with displacement of 1,491 cc, was built on the chassis of the 6CM but with a new four-cylinder engine with four valves per cylinder, the first in Maserati's history. It was an extremely advanced engine for its time, with "square" internal dimensions of 78 x78mm which, with the aid of a volumetric supercharger, developed 220 hp at 8,000 rpm. 

At the car's racing debut in Tripoli, at the 1939 Libyan Grand Prix, Gigi Villoresi took pole position with the aerodynamic version of the 4CL. Its first win came two Grand Prix later, in Naples, when it was driven by Englishman John Peter Wakefield, who went on to achieve two further victories in France, at the Picardie and Albi GPs.

In the second half of the 1930s, the Targa Florio was held at Palermo on a circuit designed within the Favorita Park, over a total of 40 laps. The first to finish was Gigi Villoresi, the pre-race favourite, who also set new records for the race average speed (142.288 Km/h) and the lap time (147.201 Km/h). Also taking part in that edition (the 31st), in his first racing season and at the wheel of another Maserati, was Alberto Ascari.

Villoresi thus won the last race run in Italy and Europe before the Second World War, a result that confirmed the Modena-based constructor's supremacy.

More wins were to come in the postwar period. At the wheel of the 4CL, Villoresi himself was to win the Nice Grand Prix in April 1946, with more victories to follow for French ace Raymond Sommer, English driver Reg Parnell and the great Tazio Nuvolari. Further wins were recorded in 1947, and in 1948 the 4CL was replaced by the 4CLT, featuring the new tubular chassis and intake system with double-stage turbocharger.

27 - A unique MC20 prototype dedicated to Sir Stirling Moss. Testing of the Trident's new super sportscar continues

Modena, 13 May 2020 – A prototype of the Maserati MC20, the new Maserati super sportscar, will pay homage to Sir Stirling Moss, the British motor-racing ace who died on 12 April at the age of 90.

Maserati has photographed the MC20 super sportscar alongside two iconic race cars, firstly the Maserati Eldorado, the single-seater driven on its debut in Monza in 1958 by Stirling Moss himself, at the "Trofeo dei due Mondi" and as well as the Maserati 250F also driven by Moss in  numerous F1 GP races. 

It is very fitting that the Trident Brand has chosen the date of 13 May to recall the great British driver, since there is no doubt that his victory in the Monaco F1 Grand Prix on 13 May 1956, at the wheel of the Maserati 250F, stands out amongst the many trophies in the champion's collection. It was an amazing win, since Moss led the race from the first to the last of the 100 laps around the winding, demanding Monaco circuit. Maserati's day of triumph was completed by taking third place as well – also in a 250F - by French driver Jean Behra.

Moss, who recorded 16 victories in 66 starts in Formula 1 Grand Prix racing, is one of the most successful drivers never to have won the world title. Sir Stirling came within a whisker of the crown on more than one occasion, finishing in second place on four occasions, and third in three championships. For this reason, he was known as the "king without a crown". In the 1956 season and some 1957 races, Moss drove a Maserati 250F (“his favourite”, as he often recalled), beaten only by Juan Manuel Fangio. Moreover, Moss's Argentinian rival took his 1957 title at the wheel of another 250F, confirming the reliability and superiority of the Modena-built car.

Through this MC20 prototype Maserati wishes to commemorate one of the greatest names in the annals of world motorsports, who wrote some of the finest pages in its own racing history. The list of Maserati cars driven by the British driver also includes the Tipo 60 Birdcage, Tipo 61 and 300 S.

The choice of a prototype of the MC20 to dedicate to Sir Stirling is no coincidence: through this model, the Trident Brand aims to underline its sporting vocation, and above all return to a leading role on the racing circuits, after the latest world championship won in 2010 with another extraordinary car, the MC12.

The arrival of the MC20 is an important event for the Modena-based company, not only because of the racing comeback, but also because it will be the first car to adopt a new engine 100% designed, developed and produced by Maserati itself.

We hope that Sir Stirling Moss would have liked the new MC20: a car that fully embodies Maserati's truest values in terms of the performance, driving pleasure and innovative contents superlatively expressed in all Trident Brand models.

30 - Sir Stirling Moss: a big loss for Maserati and the entire Motorsport World

Modena, 12 April 2020 – Sir Stirling Moss had Maserati in his heart. The feeling was always mutual because Moss is one of the great champions who was able to interpret the cars of the Trident. He was a fast, spirited and generous driver and a bright and dynamic man. Few racers of his time crossed the 90-year mark and he did it when he was still in great shape and kept repeating one of the phrases that made him famous "The straights are these boring stretches that combine two curves".

One of his last visits to Italy had been to celebrate 100 years of the house at the MEF in Modena where he found many of the cars that had led to success in Italy and in the world. He wanted to describe them personally; he remembered them one by one. “The 250 F was very fast and capable of satisfying the driver in all his maneuvers; the 300 S had a great balance and an extraordinary ease of driving; the Tipo 61 Birdcage combined the characteristics of the other two.

"The 250F was his favorite single-seater, the one with which he conquered one of his most beautiful victories at the Monaco Grand Prix on 13 May 1956, when with the Maserati chassis number 2522, he remained in the lead from the first to the last lap. A car he was so proud of, that he had kept it in his private collection for many years. With the Maserati 250F that year he also conquered the Italian Grand Prix in Monza by beating the Lancia Ferrari that Collins left at Fangio to allow him to win the title.

Sir Stirling Moss was born on September 17, 1929 in London where he always lived. His father, Alfred E. Moss, finished 16th at the Indianapolis 500 in 1924, his sister Pat took part in several rallies: racing was a family vice. He could only end up racing cars too. In Formula 1 he raced 66 Grand Prix from 1951 to 1961, winning 16. Four times he was second in the World Championship: 1955, 1956, 1957 and 1958. For this reason he is considered by companions and competitors to be the best driver among those who did not become world champions, even if reading the gold book of the championship you can safely say that he was among the best ever. He was racing in Formula 1, but also on the road where he still holds a legendary record at the 1955 Mille Miglia conquered in 10 hours, 7 minutes and 48 seconds and conquered the 12 hours of Sebring, the Tourist Thophy, the Targa Florio.

"Who do you think you are Stirling Moss?" For years, it was the phrase most used by British policemen when they stopped someone for speeding in the fifties and sixties. It was so popular that he even ended up shooting a cameo in a James Bond movie, Casino Royale.

A unique character who has never stopped. Until a few years ago it was possible to find him one day in Melbourne and 24 hours later a guest on a television program in New York.

Tireless as he was behind the wheel.

Maserati will always carry you in your heart thanking you for what you have been able to give to the Brand.

With the Maserati 250F that year he also conquered the Italian Grand Prix in Monza by beating the Lancia Ferrari that Collins left at Fangio to allow him to win the title.

Sir Stirling Moss was born on September 17, 1929 in London where he always lived. His father, Alfred E. Moss, finished 16th at the Indianapolis 500 in 1924, his sister Pat took part in several rallies: racing was a family vice. He could only end up racing cars too. In Formula 1 he raced 66 Grand Prix from 1951 to 1961, winning 16. Four times he was second in the World Championship: 1955, 1956, 1957 and 1958. For this reason he is considered by companions and competitors to be the best driver among those who did not become world champions, even if reading the gold book of the championship you can safely say that he was among the best ever. He was racing in Formula 1, but also on the road where he still holds a legendary record at the 1955 Mille Miglia conquered in 10 hours, 7 minutes and 48 seconds and conquered the 12 hours of Sebring, the Tourist Thophy, the Targa Florio.

"Who do you think you are Stirling Moss?" For years, it was the phrase most used by British policemen when they stopped someone for speeding in the fifties and sixties. It was so popular that he even ended up shooting a cameo in a James Bond movie, Casino Royale.

A unique character who has never stopped. Until a few years ago it was possible to find him one day in Melbourne and 24 hours later a guest on a television program in New York.

Tireless as he was behind the wheel.

32 - Sir Stirling Moss: a big loss for Maserati and the entire Motorsport World

Modena, 12 April 2020 – Sir Stirling Moss had Maserati in his heart. The feeling was always mutual because Moss is one of the great champions who was able to interpret the cars of the Trident. He was a fast, spirited and generous driver and a bright and dynamic man. Few racers of his time crossed the 90-year mark and he did it when he was still in great shape and kept repeating one of the phrases that made him famous "The straights are these boring stretches that combine two curves".

One of his last visits to Italy had been to celebrate 100 years of the house at the MEF in Modena where he found many of the cars that had led to success in Italy and in the world. He wanted to describe them personally; he remembered them one by one. “The 250 F was very fast and capable of satisfying the driver in all his maneuvers; the 300 S had a great balance and an extraordinary ease of driving; the Tipo 61 Birdcage combined the characteristics of the other two.

"The 250F was his favorite single-seater, the one with which he conquered one of his most beautiful victories at the Monaco Grand Prix on 13 May 1956, when with the Maserati chassis number 2522, he remained in the lead from the first to the last lap. A car he was so proud of, that he had kept it in his private collection for many years.

36 - Maserati starts testing the prototype of the new MC20

Modena, 5 March 2020. Following the "mule" tests, the first full prototype of the new Maserati MC20 super sports car has emerged from the Maserati Innovation Lab in Modena.

Maserati has 100% Italian DNA and is in continuous movement: the Brand has identified and selected a series of iconic locations in Italy that effectively convey the “Masters of Italian Audacity” global statement, of which the new MC20 is the first and ultimate expression.

The prototype has been photographed at night in Piazza degli Affari in Milan, below Maurizio Cattelan's sculpture L.O.V.E., a symbol of Italian audacity in international contemporary art.

Now, this marks the start of a period of road and track tests, in various conditions of use, to acquire vital data for the preparation of the car's final setup.

During the next few days the prototype will visit other locations symbolic of Italian audacity, before returning to Modena.

39 - Maserati Multi 70 and Giovanni Soldini set sail for the RORC Caribbean 600

The new challenge against Argo and PowerPlay has started

 

Modena, 24th February 2020 – Giovanni Soldini and Maserati Multi 70 set sail today, at 11.30 local time (15.30 UTC, 16.30 Italian time) from Fort Charlotte, Antigua, for the 12th edition of the RORC Caribbean 600. The race, organized by the Royal Ocean Racing Club, attracted 74 entrants for this edition, from more than 20 nations, divided in 8 classes. Among the multihulls, with Maserati Multi 70, are 7 other boats.

The RORC Caribbean 600 is the first challenge in which Maserati Multi 70 is participating with the new and already iconic mainsail that, hoisted on February 21st, has unveiled for the first time the logo of the MC20, the super sports Maserati that will be presented at the end of May in Modena. A tribute from Giovanni Soldini to Maserati and to the work done by the engineers from the Maserati Innovation Lab, who were able to transfer innovative contents of the Maserati world on this high performance trimaran.

In the multihulls class, Maserati Multi 70’s direct competitors are the two 70’s already challenged in many occasions: the American Argo, skippered by Jason Carroll, and the English PowerPlay, skippered by Peter Cunningham. Argo’s Team, who spent the past months setting up a system of flying foils and rudders, is sailing in MOD mode for this race, due to technical problems with the flying appendixes. Aboard the American trimaran there is a strong and skilled crew: the English Brian Thompson, great multihull expert, and the French Franck Cammas, an extremely successful sailor. PowerPlay is also sailing in classic MOD mode, with an equally skilled crew, among which Loick Peyron, one of the most important French sailors.

On the starting line were three more trimarans – the 80’ Ultim’Emotion 2, the 63’ Shockwave and the 60’ Ineffable – and two catamarans – the 53’ Fujin and the 78’ Allegra.

The weather expected for this edition of this race is not the most favourable: the models show an unstable trade wind, with light breeze especially for the first 12 hours of racing. Giovanni Soldini, a few moments before setting sail, commented: “Maserati Multi 70 with the flying foils gives her best with around 15 knots of wind, so these conditions are not ideal, but we will fight tooth and nail as always! We’re very happy to participate in this edition of the regatta, we’re expecting it to be very hard-fought and competitive. The level of our opponents is very high so we will have to do our best and never give up: it will be an exciting race for sure!”

The race course, 600 miles long, both starts and finishes in Fort Charlotte, Antigua, and goes around 11 islands in the Lesser Antilles, in the Caribbean. At the sound of the starting signal, the competitors started sailing North, they will pass Barbuda, Nevis, Saba and Saint Barth, then they will round Saint Martin and head South to Guadeloupe. After rounding the island, they will head back North, touching the last mark off Bermuda before heading towards the finish line, back in Antigua. The course is diverse, it requires many manoeuvres and it features different winds and currents, which make the regatta particularly interesting and challenging.

Aboard Maserati Multi 70, Giovanni Soldini is sailing with a crew of 6 men: the Italians Guido Broggi (mainsail trimmer), Nico Malingri and Matteo Soldini (both grinders and trimmers), the Spanish Carlos Hernandez Robayna (trimmer) and Oliver Herrera Perez (bowman) and the French Ronan Cointo (tactician).

The speed record of the race belongs to Giovanni Soldini himself: in 2019 Maserati Multi 70 crossed the finish line with an elapsed time of 1 day, 6 hours and 49 minutes.

42 - MC20: the name of the new Maserati super sports car climbs aboard the Maserati Multi 70

  • The logo of the new model appears on the mainsail of the Maserati Multi 70 trimaran: today the world discovers the name of the new Maserati super sports car in an unconventional way.
  • Maserati MC20 and Maserati Multi 70 are linked by the same know-how in aerodynamics, technological innovation and performance, developed at the Innovation Lab in Modena.
  • MC20 will be presented in Modena in May.

Modena, 21 February 2020 – Maserati has chosen the Maserati Multi 70 trimaran and Giovanni Soldini’s Team to tell the world the name of its new super sports car, developed, engineered and 100% built in Italy.

Today, the trimaran set sail in the Caribbean Sea for routine training in the run-up to the RORC Caribbean 600 Race. Unexpectedly, when the sails were hoisted, the new "MC20" logo appeared on the mainsail.

The Modena-based manufacturer has unveiled the car’s name in an unconventional way: the new mainsail graphics with the logo of the super sports car, created by the Centro Stile Maserati, is a tribute to the Brand's new Era, for which Giovanni Soldini, a long-term friend of the brand, is a leading spokesperson.

In this way, Giovanni Soldini and his crew pay a special tribute to the Trident Brand: underlining the connection between the high-performance trimaran and the new Maserati super sports car. The Maserati Multi 70 trimaran is the "laboratory boat" to which the Modena Innovation Lab engineers have transferred their aerodynamics, technological innovation and performance know-how. And these same values guided the team of engineers and technicians when developing the MC20.

MC20, where MC is the acronym of Maserati Corse and 20 refers to 2020, will be the first model of the new Era of the Brand. The car was developed at the Maserati Innovation Lab, will be built at the historical plant in Viale Ciro Menotti and will have its worldwide debut at the end of May in Modena.

Since 2012, Maserati and Giovanni Soldini have been united by the same values of passion, adrenalin and the pursuit of the highest performance, and have been working together in a strategic partnership far beyond any ordinary sponsorships.

What's more, Maserati Multi 70 and the new car also share a vocation for sporting prowess and for racing: with this technology-packed model, Maserati intends to make a racing comeback.

Giovanni Soldini comments: “I am proud to represent the Trident Brand worldwide and am honoured that the trimaran Maserati Multi 70 has been chosen for the launch of the new MC20 logo. I can't wait to test drive the car and to attend the big May event in Modena.”

Maserati Multi 70's first challenge with her new “MC20” graphics will be the RORC Caribbean 600 Race, which starts on 24 February and involves more than 700 yachtsmen from all over the world, on a 600-mile course around eleven islands in the Lesser Antilles (Caribbean Sea).

The car's debut is eagerly anticipated for May, when the Brand will star in a great celebratory event in Modena and claim a place at the centre of the world stage for the future of mobility.

43 - Maserati MC20: the name of the new super sports car of the Trident Brand is announced

  • MC20 means Maserati Corse 2020 and celebrates that the Brand will return to racing.
  • The super sports car is the first model of the new Maserati Era and it will debut by the end of May in Modena.
  • The MC20, developed at the Maserati Innovation Lab, will be built at the Viale Ciro Menotti Plant in Modena.

Modena, 20 February 2020 – The eagerly-anticipated Maserati super sports car will be named MC20.

The car was developed at the Maserati Innovation Lab, will be built at the historical plant in Viale Ciro Menotti and will have its worldwide debut at the end of May in Modena.

MC20 underlines the sporting credentials of the new model: MC is the acronym of Maserati Corse and 20 refers to 2020, the year which marks the start of a new phase in Maserati’s history.

The first racing car to wear the Trident logo was the Tipo 26, where the number indicated the year of manufacture, and in the same way, the MC20 will be the first car born in the new Era of the Modena firm.

The super sports car is the natural evolution of the highly successful MC12, the car that in 2004 marked  Maserati’s return to racing after 37 years.

The MC12 won 22 races (including 3 victories in the 24 Hours of Spa) and 14 Championship titles across Constructors’ Championship, Drivers’ Championship and Teams’ Championships in the FIA GT from 2004 to 2010.

Maserati will return to the world of racing with the new MC20.

The model will be built at the Modena Plant where modernization works are already in progress on the production line, which will also accommodate its advanced electric powertrain.

At the same time, to further complete the production areas at the Viale Ciro Menotti Plant, work has already started on a paint shop, a completely new feature for the facility, which will be equipped with advanced innovative low environmental-impact technologies.

44 - Maserati announces its plans for the development and production of the new electrified range

Modena, 14 February 2020 – All new Maserati models will be 100% developed, engineered and built in Italy, and will adopt hybrid and battery electric propulsion systems delivering all the innovation and outstanding performance typical of the Brand's DNA.

Following on from the announcement of testing of the new full electric powerplants to be installed on future Maserati models, the development and production plans for the Trident Brand's electrified range are now presented.

Maserati’s electrification programme starts this year, and the first hybrid car to be built will be the new Maserati Ghibli.

Production of the new Maserati GranTurismo and GranCabrio, the Brand's first cars to adopt 100% electric solutions, will commence in 2021.

Maserati has decided to build the GranTurismo and GranCabrio at the Mirafiori production hub, with an investment of 800 million Euros. The latest generation of the GranTurismo and GranCabrio, two iconic cars for the Trident Brand, have totalled more than 40,000 units sold from 2007 to 2019.

During 2020, Mirafiori will be strengthening its position as a world hub dedicated to the electrification and mobility of the future, with a large proportion of its capacity allocated to the production of the Brand's new electrified cars.

However, Maserati's heart is still in Modena, where it has its Headquarters, where the cars in its range are developed and tested, and where the new super sports car is to be built. For Maserati, Modena is the place where extraordinary cars have been produced for over 80 years, all outstanding in their luxury, elegance, style, performance and quality, and which are sold in over 70 markets.

In 2020, the first of the new Modena-built Maserati models will be the super sports car, brimming with technology and evoking the Brand's traditional values. Major modernisation work is in progress on the production line at the Modena plant, partly to accommodate the electric version of the new super sports car. At the same time, work has already started on a paint shop, a completely new addition to the facility.

Modena is also the home of the Innovation Lab, the heart of the Brand's technological research, development and design. It is at this facility of excellence that all the Maserati models of today and tomorrow are designed. Here, digital processes support the product's development, applying the exclusive Maserati formula which adopts an integrated approach to prioritise the human factor right from the initial phases: customer-focus is incorporated in the world of virtual simulation with an exclusive hardware-software mix. The digital processes supporting product development take place in three major areas: the Static Simulator, the new latest generation Dynamic Simulator featuring DiM (Driver-in-Motion) technology and the “User eXperience” development labs.

Also upcoming is a new Maserati utility vehicle, to be built at Cassino and intended to play a leading role for the Brand, thanks to its innovative technologies. About 800 million Euros will be invested in construction of the new production line, scheduled to begin at the end of the first quarter of 2020. The first pre-production cars are expected to come off the line by 2021.

As one of the Brand's recent claims puts it, “the music is changing”, and this will be even more apparent in May this year, when past and future will meet to place Maserati firmly on the world stage for the future of mobility.

46 - Maserati Premieres the new Levante Royale Special Series at the Snow Polo World Cup in St. Moritz

  • The Royale Special Series is available across all models with V6 engines featured in the current Maserati range.
  • Just 100 Maserati Levante, Quattroporte and Ghibli Royale will be produced with engines ranging from the 275HP 3.0l V6 Diesel, to the 350HP and 430HP 3.0l V6 petrol

St. Moritz, January 27, 2020 – Maserati took centre stage last weekend as St. Moritz welcomed the Snow Polo World Cup 2020, now in its 36th  edition. The Italian carmaker premiered the Levante Royale Special Edition, a celebration of dynamic elegance, as guests gathered on the St. Moritz lake to attend one of the most glamorous events of the social calendar.

The Snow Polo World Cup Final, of which Maserati is Official Sponsor, took place yesterday: after an exciting game, Team St. Moritz lifted the Trophy, after beating Team Azerbaijan 4 to 1 ½.

The official presentation of the exclusive Maserati Levante Royale was undoubtedly the highlight of the activities off the polo field: the SUV took pride of place in the Polo Village and guests were able to admire its elegant yet dynamic lines, beautifully set off by the Engadin mountains as a glorious backdrop. Among guests in attendance were a number of VIP personalities such as British polo star Malcolm Borwick and slalom world champion Giorgio Rocca.

Throughout its history, Maserati has created unique models and exclusive series. Amongst them, the 1986 Royale version of the 3rd generation Quattroporte, a restyling featuring exclusive blue and green colours, improved interiors, with soft leather seats and extensive use of wood in the dashboard and door panels with only 51 units produced.

Today Maserati pays tribute to its heritage with the launch of a special series bearing the same name, available across all models with V6 engines featured in the current Maserati range: just 100 Maserati Quattroporte, Levante and Ghibli Royale will be produced with engines ranging from the 275HP 3.0l V6 Diesel, to the 350HP and 430HP 3.0l V6 petrol.

This new special series, is available in two exclusive colours, Blu Royale (on display) and Verde Royale, and features 21” bespoke Anteo Staggered Anthracite wheels and silver brake calipers.

Its interiors, based on the GranLusso version, reflect the elegance and exclusivity of the Levante Royale through its materials: PELLETESSUTA™ Cuoio (tan) leather by Ermenegildo Zegna or two-tone Pieno Fiore leather in Black/tan, high gloss Metal Net finishes and the distinctive “One of 100" plate, together with Bowers & Wilkins Sound System, electric sunroof and tinted windows.

The Royale Special Series comes with extensive equipment, thanks to the Cold Weather, Premium and Driving Assistance Plus Packages fitted as standard.  Its advanced driving assistance systems (ADAS) actively respond to potential road hazards and improve comfort and safety of driver and passengers.

Although the first deliveries are scheduled for March 2020, orders for this series limited to only 100 units can already be placed. The Royale Special Series will be available in EMEA, China and APAC countries.
