In celebration of the 100th anniversary of Maserati, the trident was out in full force at events all over the Peninsula during Monterey Car Week and the Pebble Beach Concours d’ Elegance. Rare and beautiful Maseratis were far from an unusual sight. Here are some of our favorites.
Bonhams Quail Auction
This 1969 MASERATI GHIBLI 4.7-LITER SPIDER Coachwork by Ghia sold for a whopping $814,000.00 as 1 of 125 built.
Several Maserati’s were in attendance for their own special class but the 2005 MC12 was s stunner.
Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion
The unveiling of the new Alfieri had everyone in the crowd drooling over this next generation concept. But the surrounding paddock was overflowing with Maseratis from every era. Derek Hill, son of racing pioneer Phil Hill took out this extremely rare 1962 Tipo 151. As one of three, this car (the only survivor of the three) was built for Briggs Cunningham for the 1962 LeMans driven by Bill Kimberly and Dick Thompson. How about the vintage Maserati hauler and motorcycle in the back ground?
Because there were so many, or there are too many great photos to share, we’ve split this topic into two posts. Check back next week when we’ll have the Maserati’s on the lawn at Pebble Beach.
