The Maserati brand carries a significant Motorsport racing history after making its racing debut some 95 years ago.
It was on the 25th of April 1926 when the Tipo26 claimed victory at the 1 500cc class at the Targa Florio with Targa Florio with Alfieri Maserati behind the wheel.
28 years later, on 17 January 1954, Maserati made its debut in F1 and entered the pinnacle of world motorsports with the 250F driven by the iconic Juan Manuel Fangio.
That partnership, crowned by many victories, which Maserati is commemorating today in a fitting tribute.
Maserati is honouring its racing history with two new F Tributo Special Edition models that made their premiere at this year’s Shanghai Auto Show.
In case you are wondering, the F stands for Fangio, the driver who made his mark on an Era. Tributo.
Available on the Ghibli and Levante models, the F Tributo models can be had in two colours; Rosso Tributo and Azzurro Tributo.
According to Maserati, the red is the colour of Italian motorsports, and historically Maserati cars always raced in paintwork of this hue while the blue is one of the colours (together with yellow) of the City of Modena, the Brand’s historic home.
The Levante F Tributo is fitted with Anteo 21-inch wheels finished in black while the Ghibli rides on 21-inch Titano wheels finished in glossy black.
There is a specific badge in glossy black on the wheel arch and the trident logo in body colour on the C- pillar, further setting the special edition models apart from their respective siblings.
