Meserati, a triumphant history and an innovative future
Short history class.
This iconic vehicle that turns heads anywhere it goes was born out of a shared family affection for motorsports. Carlo, the eldest of the family, established the foundations for the company at the turn of the century, designing single-cylinder engines in his spare time while working as a test driver for Fiat and Isotta Fraschini.
In 1926, Maserati produced its first car – the Tipo 26 – which was a huge success on its racing debut in the 1926 Targa Florio. Maserati is the only Italian manufacturer to win the mighty Indy 500 raceway twice, in 1939 and 1940.
It was around 1926 that another Maserati brother, Mario, an artist, created Maserati’s trident emblem – based on the Fountain of Neptune in Bologna. The logo for Maserati’s strength and power and has been present on every one of their historic racing cars. Maserati believes that using the trident gives their cars instant recognition and carries forward their legacy
Plans for the future.
For more than a century, the brand has redefined how we think about race cars, pushing the upper limits with epic feats of engineering and challenging the sports-car experience with Italian touch.
Maserati is constantly evolving. It was exclusively built as racing cars for a long time, but also expanded into roadgoing performance cars, saloons and more. After years of anticipation, Maserati declared a radical plan to electrify its entire range by 2023. Starting with the release of a new two-seater super sports car, named MC20, the brand will mark a return to motorsport. This will be followed by a new mid-sized SUV and other innovations, which will feature the brand’s first fully electric powertrain.
