Published to coincide with Maserati’s one-hundredth anniversary, this lavishly produced volume celebrates the glamour and excellence of Italian automotive style and design. Maserati traces the history of the legendary Italian luxury sports car company that was founded in 1914 by Alfieri Maserati and his three brothers, Bindo, Ernesto, and Ettore, and which went on to back-to-back wins at the Indianapolis 500—the only Italian car manufacturer ever to do so. The book profiles the twelve most iconic Maserati vehicles, including the best-selling Ghibli as well as the Quattroporte, GranTurismo, Bora, Berlinetta, and—for the first time ever published—the Alfieri, which has been described as the manifesto of the future of Maserati design. The book features stunningly precise photography that highlights the exquisite lines and lavish details of the vehicles, along with never before published images and technical and engineering highlights. Also included are special contributions by Lorenzo Ramaciotti, Giovanni Soldini, Franca Sozzani, Gildo Zegna, and Mario Botta.

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, 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 models, 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. Royal Automobile Club shortlist of contenders for Motoring Book of the Year!
