Maserati - A Century of History - The Official Book

To commemorate 100 years of Maserati, this book offers a comprehensive look into the marque's history, divided into three main sections. The first segment, by Luca Dal Monte, delves into the company's industrial evolution, from its early focus on racing cars to the introduction of post-war GT models and iconic classics of the Fifties, Sixties, and Seventies.

Lorenzo Ramaciotti's 'Road cars and design' section focuses on Maserati's road vehicles, spanning from the A6 1500 to modern productions like the Quattroporte, Granturismo, and GranCabrio. Historic and contemporary images accompany each model, accompanied by an introduction exploring the historical context of Maserati's road car production.

The final section, penned by Cesare De Agostini and Gianni Cancellieri, highlights Maserati's racing legacy, from its pioneering era to Formula 1 triumphs, including Juan Manuel Fangio's 1957 championship win. It also covers endurance racing successes and notable achievements like victories at Indianapolis in 1939 and 1940, culminating in the recent triumphs of the MC12.
Special sections detail Maserati's records in road speed and speedboat racing. Nominated for the prestigious 2014 Motoring Book of the Year by the Royal Automobile Club, this book offers a comprehensive tribute to Maserati's illustrious history.

Maserati - Un siècle d'histoire

Maserati a eu cent ans en 2014 et a célébré cet anniversaire avec une fierté légitime. Un centenaire éclairé par des voitures qui ont marqué l'histoire, en particulier par leurs succès au plus haut niveau du sport automobile.

Luca Dal Monte, l'un des quatre auteurs, rappelle l'histoire de l'entreprise, depuis ses origines romantiques avec Alfieri Maserati et ses frères, protagonistes et créateurs d'un rêve auquel ils ont donné leur propre nom, avant d'évoquer ensuite les transformations de la compagnie et des produits survenues au fil des ans, jusqu'à l'évolution récente au sein de la galaxie Fiat-Chrysler.

Par ce dernier développement, le constructeur au trident connaît un superbe renouveau, à l'opposé de la crise mondiale, avec de belles perspectives de développement et de consolidation.

Lorenzo Ramaciotti retrace magistralement l'évolution du style des voitures de Grand Tourisme de la firme de Modène, entre tradition et innovation, résultat de l'extraordinaire créativité des stylistes italiens.
Enfin, Gianni Cancellieri et Cesare De Agostini rappellent les fascinants exploits des pilotes talentueux qui ont franchi en tête la ligne d'arrivée, au volant de Maserati.

Maserati: Un secolo di storia - Il libro ufficiale

A project of high level meant to commemorate 100 years of Maserati, this work covers the history of the marque in all its aspects and is divided into three large sections.
The first chapter signed by Luca Dal Monte, deals with the company history and the marque's industrial matters: from the early years, when production was concentrated on racing cars, to the advent of the first GT of the immediate post-war period through to the great classics of the Fifties, Sixties and Seventies.

The 'Road cars and design' section by Lorenzo Ramaciotti, is specifically devoted to the Trident's road cars: from the A6 1500 to current production, including the extraordinary expressions of design offered by models like the 3500 and 5000 GT, the various Quattroportes, the Mistral, Ghibli, Indy to then approach the present day, touching on the 3200 GT and the current Quattroporte, Granturismo and GranCabrio. Historic and modern pictures illustrate each of these models in a long photographic treatise, preceded by an introductory section which focuses on the historic matters associated with this vein of Maserati production.

The last section written by Cesare De Agostini and Gianni Cancellieri is about races: from the outset Maserati's history has mainly been one of racing, from the pioneering era to the glorious Fifties, as much in Formula 1 with the 1957 world championship won by Juan Manuel Fangio, as endurance races, Maserati has expressed itself with success at the top levels of the sport.
But even before that, the glorious marque had written unforgettable pages in the annals of racing, including victories at Indianapolis in 1939 and 1940. The recent success of the MC12 is the latest chapter in this proud history of achievement. There are also specific boxes in this section devoted to particular competitive aspects, such as the great road speed records (1926-1952) and the company's long experience in speedboat racing.

Maserati - Luxe, sport et prestige

Dans le monde des voitures de sport italiennes, le nom de Maserati brille depuis bien avant Ferrari et Lamborghini. Pourtant, son histoire reste souvent méconnue, peu documentée comparativement à ses concurrentes.
Les premières Maserati de course datent de 1922, mais c'est dans les années 1930, après son rachat par la famille Orsi, que la marque se tourne vers les voitures Grand Tourisme. Les GT Maserati apparaissent discrètement dans les années 1950, marquant le début de son âge d'or, avec des modèles emblématiques comme la 3500 GT et la Ghibli.

La compétition, en Formule 1 et en Sport, forge l'image de Maserati mais aussi ses difficultés financières. La marque se renouvelle avec des innovations telles que la Quattroporte, première supercar quatre portes, et la Bora à moteur central. Malgré des périodes d'instabilité sous De Tomaso et Fiat, Maserati retrouve aujourd'hui son prestige d'antan.

Martin Buckley, passionné de longue date par Maserati, dévoile dans cet ouvrage l'histoire mouvementée de la marque, offrant des impressions de conduite, des conseils d'achat et des portraits des principaux acteurs de cette saga automobile fascinante.

Maserati At Heart

In this book of over 500 pages Ermanno Cozza, the true historic memory of Maserati, passionately tells a story packed with behind the scenes truths - right up to today - that have never before been published.
He covers half a century of the company's life, which he lived in close contact with the great motor racing champions, ingenious technicians, designers and, naturally, company life as well, of course, as the unforgettable cars. A carefully chosen collection of photographs and other illustrations complete this invaluable book.

"Over 66 years have passed since I walked through the gates of Officine Alfieri Maserati (the Alfieri Maserati Workshops). It was in 1951, and in all that time I can truly say that Maserati took hold of my heart. The factory, the men and the cars have indelibly marked moments in my life.
Today, many people consider me to be the living memory of Maserati and, in that way, take me back to those earlier days.
In this book, I have tried to convey the excitement of living the Maserati legend so that, step by step, I cover the most important moments of my long and extraordinary experience: the excitement of participation, the joy and pain, the cars and the defeats, the ambitions and the professional difficulties.
While I have always enjoyed good health, over the years I have been infected with the Maserati `virus' of which I believe I have been a carrier all this time - and it is a virus of which I never want to be cured", Ermanno Cozza.
