Racing DNA, its soul powerfully rooted in the purity of racing, unprecedented victories and unmatched achievements. That led to Maserati to celebrate their past in competition with the series F Tributo Special Edition.
Maserati's debut in competition occurred 95 years ago. It was on April 25, 1926 that a first racing car carried the Trident on its hood, the Type 26, won in the 1.500 cc category of the Targa Florio, with Alfieri Maserati behind the wheel.
On January 17, 1954, 28 years after that debut, Maserati debuted at the F1 and reached the top of the racing world with the 250F piloted by Juan Manuel Fangio. An iconic couple, crowned with numerous victories, which Maserati now commemorates with a well-deserved Tribute.
The brand's history in competition and its connection to the racing world has inspired the new F Tributo Special Edition, which made its world premiere at the Shanghai Auto Show 2021. The "F" is for Fangio, the pilot who marked an era, and “Tribute” as a clear tribute to the glorious victories of the past.
The special series is available for the Ghibli and Get the Funds! in two exclusive colors, the Rosso Tribute y Azzurro Tribute, and evoke the audacious spirit of Maserati with this sporty version, which seduces both in its appearance and in its details.
The reference to the glorious past is evident from the outside. Red is the most representative color of Italian motorsport and Maserati cars, historically, have always competed painted in this shade, which represented Italy in motor competitions at the beginning of the last century.
On the other hand, the vivid and brilliant blue of the Azzurro Tributo reminds us that blue is one of the colors (along with yellow) of the city of Modena, the historic headquarters of the brand.
Other references to Fangio's 250F, which was characterized by a range of yellow and red tones, can be seen in the yellow brake calipers and wheel finishes.
To complete the exterior appearance, the Levante F Tributo is equipped with 21 ”Anteo rims in black color and the Ghibli F Tribute rides 21 ”titanium wheels in gloss black. It also equips a specific badge, in glossy black, on the wheel arch and the trident logo on the rear pillar is in body color.
Finally, the shades of the exterior details are replicated in the seams, in red or yellow, in contrast to the full grain Black Pieno Fiore leather.
