Maserati celebrated its 100th Anniversary in grand style at Monterey Car Week, and isn’t a stranger to the famous Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance either, where in 1968 a Maserati Mistral Coupe took top honors as Best of Show.
Looking forward to Maserati’s next century, the highly acclaimed Alfieri concept 2+2 made its North American debut during a special centennial celebration at the Mazda Raceway during the Rolex Monterey Motorsport Reunion, where Maserati was also the Honored Marque. As Lorenzo Ramacioitti, Head of Fiat Chrysler Automobile Global Design, presented the stunning concept, he stated “This car has a racing breed,” but added that it has “a kick of poetry.”
At the auctions during Monterey Car Week, Maserati highlights included a 1969 Ghibli 4.7 Spyder which sold for $841,000; and a 1949 Maserati A6 15000/3C Berlinetta which captured $891,000. At Gooding & Company, the historic Maserati 250F driven to victory by Sir Stirling Moss at Monza in 1956, sold for $4.2 Million.
