Two Maserati MC12s made it up to the podium today here in Bucharest, where the second race of the City Challenge was run along the 3,071-meter track in the city streets of the Romanian capital, around the magnificent Parliament building. After an excellent Race 1 result, run the previous evening, Andrea Bertolini and Michael Bartels repeated yesterday's third place, despite the 105-kg ballast on board. The two Vitaphone Racing Team driving aces ran a steady, consistent race. From fourth place at
The annual Autumn Italian Car Day at the Heritage Motor Centre, Gaydon, takes place on Sunday 14th September and promises a strong Lamborghini element. The Lamborghini Club UK (LCUK) is holding its ‘Car of the Year Awards’ at the event and LCUK expects a large number of Lambos to attend, both classic and modern.
A stellar array of supercars kicked off the 2008 Goodwood Festival of Speed on Friday with manufacturers showcasing the very latest - and fastest - performance icons. Maserati lovers and fellow spectators were treated to the first UK glimpses of the trident marque’s two latest additions: the Quattroporte S and the GranTurismo S.

Maserati GB hosted a very special day for their lady clients last week at London’s most exclusive Club: the Hurlingham.
Maserati lady clients were joined by supermodel and Maserati ambassador Jodie Kidd and TV presenter Vicki Butler-Henderson (the first woman to ever win a race in a Maserati) as they attended Salon Privé Ladies’ Day at the Hurlingham Club.
The day started at Maria Grachvogel’s store on Sloane Street, London, where the designer herself hosted a private preview of
Maserati Quattroporte, the model which established the category of “Luxury Sports Saloons”, can be considered something of a Maserati masterpiece. After five years of success, with more than 15,000 cars delivered and 46 international awards, the Quattroporte is now being presented with a new look and new technical solutions.
The history of art is characterised by audacious artists who challenged pre-existing conventions. Similarly the Pininfarina design team, thanks to their unrivalled and skilful hands, cre
Celebrity chef and car aficionado James Martin has entered his latest addition to his car collection, a stunning Maserati A6GCS, in this year’s Mille Miglia race.
James, who acquired and painstakingly restored his 1948 A6GCS (one of only 15 ever built) just a few months ago, headed off to Italy on Sunday in a new Maserati GranTurismo. He was accompanied by a TV crew who will be filming him and his co-driver Sarah Bennett-Baggs, herself a rac
A year after the unveiling of the GranTurismo, Maserati will be back at the Geneva International Motorshow with yet another world premiere, the GranTurismo S. The ultimate expression of the Trident coupé’s sportiness shifts the emphasis onto performance and driving enjoyment.
Two main novelties are at the heart of the new Maserati: the 440 hp V8 4.7 engine and the electro-actuated gearbox with fast MC-Shift arranged in the transaxle layout typical of high-performance sports cars that repre
During last year’s FIA GT championship Maserati drove their competitors into the ground with the MC12 GT1 (which already spawned the MC12). On the occasion of the overall victory, Maserati introduced the limited edition (12 units) MC12 Corsa.
The Über-Maserati weighs nearly 400 kg (880 lbs) less than the base MC12 (1,150 instead of 1,531 kg ). This corresponds to a power-to-weight ratio of 1.5 kg / hp (3.36 lb / hp). With 755 hp and 740 Nm (546 ft-lb) of torque, the Corsa will run circles
The new Quattroporte Sport GT S will be unveiled at the Frankfurt Motorshow for its worldwide preview. The Quattroporte Sport GT S is the ultimate expression of Maserati's saloon sportiness.
Exclusively for those looking for an even stronger sporting edge in a luxury saloon, the Quattroporte Sport GT S, equipped with an automatic 6-speed gearbox, stands out for its exceptional dynamic behaviour and uncompromised handling.

One year after the presentation of the Ferrari 575GTZ, Zagato returns to Villa d’Este with a world preview for fans of Italian sports sedans: the Maserati GS Zagato.
In the most classic traditions of exclusive collections that inspired the creativity of car designers in the '50s and '60s, Paolo Boffi, well-known entrepreneur in the furnishing and luxury design sector, has commissioned from Zagato a customised look for his Maserati GS Spyder.
Zagato proposes a line that evoked the histori
The Edo Maserati MC 12R just got better. Where the MC 12R had a modest 70hp power increase, the MC 12XX is aiming for Ferrari FXX power levels, totalling the horsepowers under the hood at 800. Edo was never very happy with the Maserati MC 12, even comparing the sound of the car to a Nissan Primera, and has undoubtedly outdone himself this time around.
So, if you have a MC12 sitting around, head on down to Ahlen, Germany. With purchasing this program you will also receive 1 day of testing with
