Maserati celebrates 100 years at FoS in style... does it know any other way?

It’s not as though we haven’t already mentioned it, but in case you’ve missed it so far, Maserati celebrates its centenary this year. A whole raft of celebrations are planned for this icon of motorsport and luxury road cars. Here’s a handy summary so you don’t miss any of it…

On the hill: The ‘100 Years of Maserati’ class in the hillclimb puts Maserati in a class of its own – literally. The Tipo 26M (the oldest Maserati at the event), the world championship winning 250F and Indy 500 winning 8CTF are just three of more than 20 historic Maseratis that will take to the hill.

In Cartier Style et Luxe: ‘The Height of Fashion’ will be the Maserati class within the concourse competition. A range of 1950s sports cars – including the A6GCS, 150 GT Fantuzzi Spider and A6 1500 Pinin Farina – will vie to win the judges’ affections.

Automotive art: Italian artist Enzo Naso will display 39 historic motorsport lithographic posters from his ‘A Century of Victories’ collection. What’s more, he’ll be completing a new poster, featuring Stirling Moss racing a 250F at the Goodwood Motor Circuit, throughout the weekend.

UK debuts: Bringing the story right up to date will be a pair of UK debuts. The stunning Alfieri concept car – which has just been tipped for production next year and recently scooped the Design Award for Concept Cars and Prototypes at Villa d’Este – will be on show. That’s one we’ll be taking a close look at. The GranCabrio MC Centennial Edition will also be on show in the UK for the first time.

If you’re already a Maserati fan, you won’t want to miss it. If you’re not, it will be your education. Either way, you now have no excuse for missing any of it…
